Recipe: Tropical Banana Mango Quinoa Breakfast with Coconut Milk

In honor of national breakfast month, our talented in-house chef Will McDonough has outdone himself again with a creative, healthy, nutritious breakfast recipe that’s sure to tantalize your taste buds. Try it out and let us know what you think!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup dry quinoa, rinsed well
  • 1 (15 ounce) can lite coconut milk
  • 1 banana, thinly sliced
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup diced mango
  • 6 tablespoons unsweetened coconut chips

Instructions

  1. In a small pan, combine the quinoa, lite coconut milk, and thinly sliced banana.
  2. Bring to a boil. Stir, then reduce the heat and cover.
  3. Simmer until the quinoa is cooked and the texture becomes creamy, 15-20 minutes. Stir occasionally during the cooking time. The banana will “melt” into the quinoa during the cooking time and the stirring will help this.
  4. Meanwhile, place the coconut chips in a small dry skillet. Heat on medium heat a few minutes until the chips are golden brown.
  5. Once the quinoa is cooked, add it to two bowls and top with the mango and coconut chips.
