Breakfast Quinoa with Summer Fruits

066

I love, love, love…… fruit salad.  This time of year we are so fortunate to have so many types of fruit available and the colours ….lets not even go there with the stunning colours.

So, growing up we had fruit salad often, and each time it was just solid mouthfuls of goodness and health being consumed into our bellies.

Okay, now if you have been following me for awhile, you will know how I do not like waste, and I will find something to do with leftovers….This was one of those times…just a bit of quinoa, sitting all on its lonesome in a container in my fridge and then of course fruit, put them together and it was like a match made in heaven, oh, don’t forget about some freshly squeezed orange juice, just to seal the deal.

This, I just could not resist.  You are probably thinking I have lost my marbles but really Quinoa and Fruit are my new best friends…and what is wrong with a little updated version of The Fruit Salad……..Total Awesomeness !!!

  1. There’s nothing like eating summer fruits in winter 😉 My family always have to have ice cream when it’s cold and I just made some strawberry and blueberry infused treats! 🙂 I love the idea of this recipe. I’m not very familiar with quinoa but I would like to learn about it! Looks delicious! Thanks for sharing 😄

    • You are so sweet, thanks Linda 🙂 My family too, have a thing for ice-cream in the cold weather, not that it gets very cold here, but still. If you do get chance, definitely check out Quinoa. We love it and it is a staple in our house. 🙂 x

    • Thanks Diana for being so kind. I am sure you are looking forward to berry season 🙂 Gosh, I love berries….Nevertheless, enjoy when you can and if you have a bit of quinoa, mix it in 🙂
      Quinoa is so incredibly versatile Diana. Hot or cold and I find it does really well in any salad.
