1 Cup quinoa, rinsed
2 Tablespoons of honey, agave or other acceptable sweetener (optional)

1 Cup of fresh berries (frozen can be substituted, but thaw and drain the night before) or other beneficial fruit.
In a small saucepan, bring milk to a boil. Add quinoa and return to a boil. Cover pan, reduce heat to low and simmer for about 15 minutes, or until ¾ of the milk has been absorbed by the quinoa.
