Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 375 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and spread coconut in a single layer across the sheet. Toast the coconut. Keep a close eye on the coconut, it could burn quickly. Coconut will be browned and fragrant after about 6 minutes. Remove from the oven and place in a small bowl. Place almonds on the baking sheet. Toast almonds for about 6 to 10 minutes, until browned and fragrant. Remove from the oven and allow to cool in a small bowl.
  2. Rinse dry quinoa. Place quinoa, salt, and water in a medium pot. Bring to a boil over medium heat. Simmer the quinoa until all of the water is absorbed. Stir occasionally. Turn off the flame and allow quinoa to cool slightly.
  3. In a bowl, combine a heaping spoonful of quinoa, applesauce, a sprinkling of almonds and coconut, a generous helping of fresh mango, a sprinkling of sugar and a splash of milk. Enjoy. It’s breakfast.
