You will love this superfood smoothie!
Quinoa is an ancient grain grown in the Andes mountains, and dates back to 3,000 B.C.E. This protein-rich whole grain contains all of the essential amino acids necessary for muscle and tissue repair, and is gluten-free and full of fiber. Quinoa is often used in place of rice and is versatile enough to be the headliner in this ultra yummy and nutritious smoothie.

Carol, We love Costco!
how do you cook quinoe?spelling sucks sorry
Add 1 cup water and 1/2 cup Quinoa to a small pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer (covered) for 15 minutes. That's it!
Don’t forget to check to see if your quinoa needs to be rinsed before cooking! I buy pre-rinsed since it’s easier.
Great tip, Holly!

Can you prepare ahead and freeze this?
Fatima, I don’t think it would taste so great after being frozen.
If the smoothie is saying it makes 2 servings but I live alone should I just half the recipe or does it keep for the next day?
I would halve it and make it fresh each day. However, the smoothie should stay good for one day.
