This pudding – Vanilla flavored Quinoa Basil seed Breakfast Pudding is quite a mouthful just talking about it!It is chokeful of nutrients and is equally delicious!
Once again I have used basil seeds here and added a sizable portion of cooked quinoa and fruits.
This pudding doubles as a breakfast as well as a dessert! And it takes very less time to prepare if,like me, you have a small stash of cooked quinoa in the freezer!!
This is my final post in Blogging Marathon #74,Week 4, Day 3 , where my theme is – Are you pudding me?
