I love rice pudding and oatmeal, and this delicious Coconut Quinoa Pudding Breakfast Bowl is a great alternative that doesn't use your healthy extra B allowance.
Quinoa is also high in protein so will keep you fuller for longer. This rice pudding is delicious and creamy and is great served as a dessert or even for breakfast.
Using a non-dairy milk makes this Coconut Quinoa Pudding Breakfast Bowl a perfect recipe for vegans. I love the nutty flavour of quinoa, it makes a delicious side to savoury dishes in place of regular rice or pasta.
