Learn how to make this easy overnight quinoa breakfast recipe that is sure to please! It is a quick, simple and clean eating, healthy breakfast to make.
Hello Kenarry readers! I am Lisa from Life on Merlin here with a great recipe for a quick, easy, and healthy breakfast that can be prepared in advance.
It doesn’t matter if you work outside the home or are a stay-at-home mom…it is always hard to find the time to take care of ourselves by eating healthy. I love anything that I can prepare in advance and the easier the better!
A while ago, I created a Simple Chia Seeds Overnight Oats Recipe. I love this recipe and eat it all the time. Being a vegetarian, I eat a lot of quinoa. I always seem to have leftover quinoa in the refrigerator so I thought…what if I substituted quinoa for the oats? I know the answer….A yummy breakfast!

Pour cooked quinoa into a mason jar.
Add almond milk. You can use vanilla if you want but I usually use plain.
Add the yogurt. I usually use vanilla but of course, use whatever you want. Drop in the chia seeds and vanilla extract.
Dump in a handful of blueberries and one heaping tablespoon of almond slivers.
Close the jar really tight and shake, shake, shake!
Put it in the refrigerator and enjoy the next morning. That’s it! Super healthy, good for you, easy, and delicious!
If you want it a little sweeter, add some honey. Feel free to add any other extras you want…bananas, cinnamon, apples, dried cranberries…the possibilities are endless.
