Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week - Quinoa Pudding


During my competition prep, I craved rice pudding. I don't know why, I hadn't eaten it in years, but I desperately wanted the creamy-sweetness... but on a Figure Competition diet, that's a little difficult to come by. Well, a little playing around in the kitchen and I came up with a substitute - a quinoa pudding/porridge that even the family loved! Nice! :-)

Quinoa Pudding / Porridge 
Makes 5 servings


Ingredients

  • 2.5 cups cooked quinoa
  • 2 cups vanilla unsweetened almond milk
  • 1-2 Tbsp ground cinnamon (to taste)
  • 1/4 tsp sea-salt
  • 2 scoops vanilla protein powder (I use Champion Nutrition Pure Whey Vanilla)

Directions

Cook Quinoa. Once cooked, add the almond milk, sea salt, cinnamon and stir.
Once incorporated, sprinkle in the protein powder, a little at a time, adding more almond milk as needed. Once the consistency and flavor you want is achieved, allow to cool slightly then separate it into 5 small containers.
