Although it’s served warm, this easy quinoa dish is meant to be enjoyed as you’d eat a cold breakfast cereal—pour on the milk, top with fresh fruit and perhaps a little sweetener, and dig in. You can add flavors to the quinoa, such as orange zest, sliced fresh ginger, vanilla extract, cacao powder, nut butter, or dried fruits, such as currants, raisins, or chopped dried apple. You can also sprinkle in toppings such as chopped toasted nuts, toasted seeds, coconut flakes, or cacao nibs Whatever add-ins you use, this recipe is simple, satisfying, and devoid of all those sugars, additives, and preservatives.
Frozen cocktails scream summertime almost as much as ice cream. One thing both have in common? They’re often loaded with sugar. The good news is low-sugar versions of your favorite frozen cocktails exist.
Put down the wine (or beer or cocktail). And pick up one of these healthful and delightful afternoon drinks instead. These fruity, fizzy beverages with benefits are just the thing for when it’s too late for coffee, but too early for booze.
