This recipe takes about 10/15 minutes to make and it makes 2 portions. You can batch make these and keep in glass jars in the fridge for up to 4 days.


  • 2 cups of organic quinoa flakes (available from health food stores)
  • 3 cups of unsweetened almond milk (I like Rude Health)
  • 2 tbs chia seeds
  • 1 cup of frozen raspberries (I like Pickard)
  • a pinch of cinnamon
  • 3 tbs unsweetened coconut yogurt (I like The Coconut Collaborative)
  • 3 tbs almond flakes (I like Daylesford Organic)

For the cherry compote:

  • 300 grams frozen cherries (I like Pack’d)
  • 2 tbs filtered water
  • 1 tbs Inulin (available from health food stores)


First make the cherry compote by combining all the ingredients on the stove, keep stirring until it thickens – about 8/10 minutes. For the quinoa porridge first add the frozen raspberries and chia until they defrost and cook slightly, about 4/5 minutes and then add the rest of the ingredients except the yogurt and the almond flakes – add these two at the end just before you pour the cherry compote topping. Enjoy!

P.S. You can sub the cherries for any frozen fruit really.
