I liked it. Only had quinoa once and never in breakfast form. I used regular milk, and brown sugar, and added extract earlier. The nutty texture will take some getting used too, but this will be made again for sure.

I'm sure it's nutritious but I didn't really like it. The blueberries were its saving grace. I might try it again to see if I can do better.
