Milk Chocolate Maple Quinoa

Mornings get a little brighter with maple and chocolate added to this superfood bowl.


  • 2 cups water
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup quinoa, rinsed
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 1/4 cup hemp milk
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • For topping:
  • Sliced bananas
  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Soy or coconut milk yogurt
  • Hemp seeds


  1. In a large saucepan, bring water and salt to a boil over high heat. Stir in quinoa and cocoa powder, cover, and reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer for 12-15 minutes, or until al dente. (In quinoa land, this means that the spirals have just started sprouting.)
  2. Add milk, maple syrup, and cinnamon. Cook over medium-low, uncovered, stirring regularly to avoid sticking to the pan. The quinoa should still be thickening. Once it looks creamy and fluffy, remove from heat. Add your choice of toppings and enjoy!
