Quinoa (Flake) Hot Cereal

1 Cup Vanilla Almond Milk
1/3 Cup Quinoa Flakes
Dried Fruit (Gogi Berries)
1 Tablespoon Nut Butter (Almond)
Handful of Strawberries

*For the milk, dried fruit, nut butter, and strawberries I just listed what I've been using, however any type of milk, dried fruit, nut butter, and fresh fruit would taste delicious!

- In a small saucepan bring the milk to a boil, pour in the quinoa flakes and turn off the burner. Stir the mixture constantly for approximately 3 minutes (or until it thickens to be the consistency you like).

- Stir in the dried fruit and nut butter, and top with the fresh fruit.

*You can top it with a drizzle of honey or maple syrup as well!

Quinoa Flakes?...
...they're a gluten-free, vegetarian, and vegan breakfast option. The flakes are made from quinoa, and have all of the health benefits, but in a more familiar breakfast texture (think oatmeal).
...they're very low in calories, fat, and are cholesterol-free.
...a great source of protein, and dietary fibre.
