Fast Quinoa Coconut Chocolate Porridge Recipe

Servings: 1 big appetite, so double it for 1 parent and 2 kids, or 2 adults


  • 1 cup already cooked quinoa, ready to go! Red or White, no matter – the red quinoa will give you a nuttier taste if that’s something you love.
  • 3 heaped tbsp coconut cream (Ayam Brand is unadulterated and solid, so if you can only get a liquidy coconut cream that’s been emulsified, measure 6 tablespoons of the liquid)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup, rice malt syrup or raw honey (use 2-3 drops of stevia if sugar free)
  • 2-3 tsp raw cacao powder or dutch processed cocoa
  • 2 tsp chia seeds (optional) but I love the crunchy little things, and packed with awesomeness
  • 50-80 ml coconut milk or nut milk (optional) if you like a liquidy porridge, it could be nice to pour a little of the milk over the top to finish, once in the bowl
  • 1 tbsp coconut flakes / shredded coconut or a combination of seeds and toasted coconut as I’ve done below
  • 2 pinches ground cinnamon (optional)
  • 2 pinches vanilla bean powder (optional)


  • Put the quinoa, coconut cream, maple syrup, cocoa powder and chia seeds in a saucepan and stir and heat for about 2 minutes until well combined and hot. Plop into 2 bowls and top with your garnish et voila! How easy…
