  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  1. Rinse quinoa in a paper towel-lined colander until water is no longer milky. Transfer quinoa to a saucepan, add 1 1/2 cups water and soak for 30 minutes.
  2. Bring quinoa and water to a boil, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer until water is absorbed, about 15 minutes.
  3. Blend bananas, whole milk, coconut milk, 3 tablespoons honey, butter, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, and salt together in a blender until smooth.
  4. Stir milk mixture into quinoa, raise heat to medium; cook and stir constantly until pudding becomes thick, about 10 minutes.
  5. Transfer pudding to serving dish and refrigerate until cold, about 1 hour. Drizzle 1 tablespoon honey over pudding; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Notes:
  • Soaking the quinoa for 30 minutes will help soften the outer shell.
  • Caution: as with all puddings, if it is not stirred consistently as it cooks, the pudding will spill out of the saucepan.
  • I have also made this recipe substituting 1 cup sweet potato puree and 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice in place of two bananas and 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon. Absolutely delicious!

I made this a few days ago and did not care for it. Neither my husband nor I thought the quinoa was a good idea. It tasted nothing like rice pudding.

I didn't use the butter and it still turned out great!

I prefer it warmed up a little bit with some chopped pecans. Makes a good breakfast.

This banana quinoa pudding is amazing! The texture and flavor are delectable. It has the perfect blend of banana and cinnamon, & it isn't overly sweet. The coconut flavor isn't noticeable. I ...

Can't wait to try this! Can you sub soy or almond milk for the coconut milk? I don't like coconut flavor. Does the original recipe taste coconut-y?

Loved it! Great flavor. I added raisins and cinnamon.

I made this a few days ago and did not care for it. Neither my husband nor I thought the quinoa was a good idea. It tasted nothing like rice pudding.

Used a whole 13 oz can of coconut milk and 1/2 cup skim milk. Also didn't have any butter, so used a tsp of vegetable oil instead. This is delicious!!!

the whole family didn't care for this one. It wasn't sweet enough to be a dessert and it had the consistency of baby food.
