  • 2 cups white quinoa cooked
  • 1 ½ cups almond milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup chopped dried apple
  • ½ cup chopped fresh apple
  • ½ cup raw cashews
  • cup hot water
  • 2 tablespoon pure maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • pinch salt
  • Berries fresh chopped apple, chopped walnuts and shredded coconut to serve (optional)


  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Enjoy
