I used natural creamy peanut butter instead and added 2 Tbsp brown sugar and it tasted pretty good.

Wonderful! Huge hit at my home. I leave out the peanut butter tho. And add cinnamon & cloves.

I used mostly coconut milk... pecans or walnuts, dates and coconut. cinnamon and some coconut sugar. most excellent, and keeps well refrigerated for the following day. rinsing the quinoa *well* several times is key to avoid bitterness.

My husband and I loved this recipe. I didn't have vanilla almond milk so I used the original unsweetened almond milk. I also used creamy peanut butter. Will definitely make this again.

I'm doing the Dr.Oz 48 hour detox cleanse and this is pretty much the breakfast.. Gotta say I dont care for it! I really though it would be ok, because I really like quinoa salads, but the texture and the prunes really turn me off. Might skip this tomorrow and just do the shakes all day!!

Easy to make! I subbed raisins for the prunes, but any dried fruit would have worked! Great hot cereal.
