Quinoa Juice

June 17, 2017

I want to share with you this amazing Peruvian recipe. In Peru it's very common to drink warm quinoa juice for breakfast. It's filling, delicious and super healthy. I have modified the recipe a little because some ingredients are difficult to find here in AZ.

 

Quinoa grows in the Andes Mountains and for millennia it has been a food staple for the native people there.

Quinoa, often described as a superfood, is packed with protein, fiber, iron, thiamine and B6. It's also an excellent source of magnesium, phosphorus, manganese and folate. It's gluten free, low in cholesterol,  anti-inflammatory nutrients, and much more.

 

So let's eat/drink quinoa to improve our health.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

INGREDIENTS

 

 

  • 3 liters of water

  • 7 oz of quinoa (wash it very well until you see the water runs clear)

  • 1 whole pineapple (cut it into small pieces and save the skin)

  • 2 apples (cut them into small pieces and save the skin)

  • 5 tbsps. of Coconut sugar (or sugar of your preference)

  • 6 whole cloves

  • 5 cinnamon sticks

 

 

 

INSTRUCTIONS

 

 

  • ln a big pot warm water, sugar, pineapple skin, apple skin, cloves and cinnamon.

  • Cover it and let it cook on medium heat for about 20 minutes. 

  • Remove the fruit skin, clove and cinnamon sticks.

  • Add the pineapple, apple and the quinoa. Cover it and let it cook for about 30 mins.

  • Remove from the heat and with a hand mixer or blender mix it all together.

 

At this point it is all done!

 

  • If you like a thicker consistency, you can add two tbsps. of corn starch. 

  • Add sugar if you prefer a sweeter taste.

 

 

Here in AZ its to hot, so I wait until it cools off to drink it cold. It is delicious! You need to try it.
