Why We Love Cooking With Blueberries
One cup only has 80 calories and also contains 3.6 grams of fiber per serving. Because blueberries are grown around the world, they are now available year-round.
My daughter loves blueberries and because she likes them, it makes me want to make better food choices for my family, and one of the best ways to do this is through purchasing fresh produce, like these high bush variety.
Some of my favorite recipes I have made with blueberries so far are these delicious homemade blueberry muffins.
How to Make Blueberry Breakfast Quinoa Boals
So here is what you need to make this delicious recipe!
Cook your quinoa according to the package directions and set aside. I usually just go ahead and plate some in my bowl so that it is ready to go when my milk gets done.
In another pot, add in your milk, cinnamon, and vanilla bean seeds from the pod until the milk is heated and warmed through.
Pour the milk over your quinoa and let it set for a minute or two.
Top with blueberries, slivered almonds, and drizzle with honey.
It is absolutely amazing! The best thing about this quinoa breakfast bowl is that if blueberries are not your favorite, just switch that out for whatever fruit is your favorite.
