If you’d like a delicious dessert that is low in sugar and has protein, then this Vanilla Maple Quinoa Pudding is for you! In fact, its so yummy, I sometimes eat it for breakfast because it reminds me a little of oatmeal. Awhile back, I introduced a Pumpkin Spice Quinoa Pudding which is one of my favorites, but as we all know, pumpkin spice tends to be more of a fall flavor. I wanted to come up with something equally tasty that I could enjoy during the spring and summer too. There are so many flavor options. Just be creative!
One thing I love about quinoa (pronounced KEEN-wah), is that it has protein! Some of the brands I have purchased range between 6-8 grams of protein per serving. It is nutritious, high in minerals, amino acids and is naturally gluten-free. It is also one of few plant foods that is considered a complete protein. How great is it that you can incorporate all this into a yummy treat?
