    1 cup quinoa ( try red quinoa for a nuttier flavor)
    4 cups unsweetened low fat coconut milk
    1/3 cup maple syrup
    1-1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    pinch of sea salt
    handful of raisins, or golden raisins
    raspberries, blueberries and or strawberries

    Clean and rinse quinoa in a mesh colander. Using a 3-quart sauce pan, combine quinoa, coconut milk, maple syrup, vanilla, cinnamon and salt. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer for 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in raisins. Remove from heat. If pudding consistency is too thin, cook an additional 5 minutes. Serve with a sprinkle of cinnamon and fresh berries or other favorite fruit.
