  2. Blend together the milk, bananas, sugar, and salt in the bowl of a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour the milk mixture into the saucepan with the quinoa.
  3. Place the pan over medium heat. Cook and stir until the mixture becomes thick and creamy, 5 to 10 minutes. Remove from the heat. Stir in the butter and vanilla and serve warm.

I really enjoyed this! I modified it by using vanilla almond milk so I did not add any more vanilla or sugar. About half way through I added dried cranberries and chopped walnuts. A fabulous and healthy desert!

We found that we had to put a lot of coconut on this pudding to make it taste good.

Yummy quinoa. A few changes: I used fat-free half-and-half in place of whole milk, substituted orange juice for 2 of the cups of water, added shredded coconut and raisins and used a bit more butter. Since the butter was salted, I didn't add more salt. In place of refined white sugar, I used a drop of real maple syrup. Next time, I'll skip the maple syrup because the bananas and orange juice definitely made it sweet enough.

Use a big pot when making this, I made a half recipe and it foamed up tremendously. It's kind of like a light and airy tapioca. The riper the banana I think the less the sweetener you need. I had to add honey to mine because the banana wasn't overripe.

This is a great Quinoa receipe. I make it for breakfast and I feel full until late in the afternoon. I used skim milk and honey. Thanks for sharing!

I had some quinoa that didn't know how to prepare, then found this recipe and tryed it, it turnd out to be yummy. However I introduced some changes, as I don't like bananas that much, used some powdered soy milk that added to the whole milk to give it the thickness, and also added an egg yolk 3 minuts before ending the cookin process, as well as some raisins. It was great. I prefferred to serve it cool. I'll try to post a picture, so you can see the results.

I had never tried Quinoa and had only recently heard of it. This was my first try at it. I loved this recipe. The only changes I made were 1% milk, no salt added and sugar in the raw instead of white sugar. Yummy!!!

Easy to make! I subbed soy milk for cow's milk, and honey for the sugar because of family preferences. This pudding was more like more like tapioca than rice pudding. Next time, I'll try using a different fruit, maybe fruit cocktail.
