Ingredients
  • 2 cups white quinoa cooked
  • 1 1/2 cups almond milk
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp fresh ginger
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apple
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh apple
  • 1/2 cup raw cashews
  • 1/3 cup hot water
  • 2 tbsp pure maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • Berries fresh chopped apple, chopped walnuts and shredded coconut to serve (optional)
Instructions
  1. Combine the apple quinoa ingredients (quinoa, almond milk, vanilla, maple syrup, cinnamon, ginger, salt and chopped fruit) in a large bowl and stir to combine. Store in a large glass container with a lid in the fridge for at least 30 mins or overnight. Alternatively, pack into individual mason jars, leaving room to add fresh fruit.
  2. To make the vanilla cashew cream, soak the cashews in the hot water for 20 minutes (if you have a high powered blender you can skip this step), after soaking, add the cashew and water mixture with the maple syrup, vanilla and salt to a blender and blend until very smooth. It should resemble cream. Cover and chill for about 10 minutes.
  3. Stir the quinoa mixture before serving. Serve up and top with a dollop of the cashew cream, some fresh apple and other toppings of choice. I usually add some chopped walnuts, shredded coconut and fresh berries.
  4. Enjoy
