Rinse and drain quinoa and place in a medium-sized pot. Add apple juice, ginger, and salt. Cook on medium heat till it comes to a boil. Cover and simmer (stirring occasionally) for about 15 minutes until liquid is evaporated.
Meanwhile, in a microwave-safe bowl add 1/3 cup water and sweet potato. Cover bowl and cook for about 3 minutes. Give it a stir and cook for 2 minutes more until potato is fork-tender.
Take potato out of bowl and place in a food processor or blender and process until smooth and pureed.
Once quinoa is cooked, fluff with a fork and whip in sweet potato puree and coconut milk. Cook uncovered over low heat for about 5 minutes more to thicken up, stirring occasionally.
Evenly divide quinoa in 4 bowls and top with almonds, dried fruit, and apples if desired.
