    1. Hi Sharon,

      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!

    2. Don’t forget to check to see if your quinoa needs to be rinsed before cooking! I buy pre-rinsed since it’s easier.

  1. Holy crap!  I just got into quinoa and it is incredibly good!  I can only imagine it in a smoothie!  Trying this this weekend (when I have some leftover quinoa i'm willing to part with!)

  2. Just love this smoothie!!!! so yummie
    I have got to say I just love your website…it helps me to lose those lest pounds to get that toned body…you're reaching out all the way to the netherlands 😉

    1. Now that’s cool!!! Love the Netherlands. 🙂 You’ll want to check out today’s post, “4 Steps to Weight Loss Challenge”.

  3. 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?
