Fresh and fruity overnight breakfast quinoa recipe

When you hear quinoa, you think of recipes for lunch or dinner until now. Quinoa is a super food with lots of benefits. It’s gluten free and loaded with protein, fiber and is full of amino acids. This is a wonderful and easy breakfast recipe that I make for myself and also my whole family. You can make servings several days in advance and just keep it in the refrigerator until ready to eat. This is great both cold and warm and topped with your favorite fruits.
