Knowing the benefits of QUINOA, I have fallen in love with it and have been looking for various ways to incorporate this SUPERFOOD into my daily diet. But prior to my various recipes of quinoa, I’ve only known it in savory dishes. So last night I experimented. I wanted to treat myself with a delicious dessert, but with very few ingredients available, I tried whipping up the best I could. And the result was this amazing looking, health-loaded parfait that has all the goodness of quinoa, yogurt, some yum jam, crunchy chia, fruits of my choice- pomegranate, blackberries and raspberries. Heaven in a cup, layered to perfection. What else do you need to comfort you in the night right? You can always make this according to your taste. Throw in nuts of your choice, any kind of fresh fruit, It will always turn out great. This could be an ideal breakfast option too, just make it a night before and it’s ready to eat in the morning.
