Long before Quinoa was gaining popularity in my part of the world, the blogosphere were filled with recipes with Quinoa and I remember admiring the shakes and smoothies. I used to wonder how it would taste like.

After a while,when I saw a couple of packs at the store nearby,I almost fainted looking at the cost. And when Usha asked me if I wanted anything from the US when she came to India last winter, I shamelessly asked her for a pack of quinoa.

Finally I got to make this delicious shake and was able to find out how it tasted!

I used:

Cooked Quinoa– 1/4 cup
Banana-1,small, roughly chopped
Coconut Blossom sugar- 1 teaspoon
Coconut milk– 150ml [ add more if needed]

Garnish of your choice – I used corn flakes, tutti frutti,roasted,chopped almonds, raisins.

Take all the ingredients [except the garnish of course!] and blend till smooth. Serve immediately garnishes with your favorite crunchy toppings.

Makes a filling and healthy drink!!!


  • Coconut milk can be replaced with almond milk or the regular milk.
  • Similarly, regular sugar, unrefined cane sugar can be used instead of coconut blossom sugar.

Bon Appetit…

  1. PJ, I am glad you asked and it was my pleasure to get it for you. Seeing all your quinoa recipes, now I am tempted to give it another try. Shake looks great and must have tasted wonderful with coconut milk.

  2. I remember when I used to buy quinoa at 10$ a pound, way too expensive to even U.S. standards considering that is not even half a kilo. Even now I buy at about 4 dollars per pound and it doesn't matter that much considering that I am the only one at home who loves it. Your shake sounds interesting. I haven't tried to incorporate quinoa into a drink yet.
