Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup quinoa, uncooked
  • 15 ounce coconut milk, unsweetened
  • 1 medium banana
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 6 tablespoon coconut chips, unsweetened
  • 1 cup pieces mango

Instructions

  • Rinse quinoa well.
  • In a small pan, combine the quinoa, lite coconut milk, and thinly sliced banana.
  • Bring to a boil. Stir, then reduce the heat and cover.
  • Simmer until the quinoa is cooked and the texture becomes creamy, 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally during the cooking time. The banana will "melt" into the quinoa during the cooking time and the stirring will help this.
  • Meanwhile, place the coconut chips in a small dry skillet. Heat on medium heat a few minutes until the chips are golden brown.
  • Once the quinoa is cooked, add it to two bowls and top with the diced mango and coconut chips.
