Coconut Berries Quinoa

I enjoy the nutty taste of quinoa and forever ago when I made that Triple Coconut Cake for my hubby’s birthday I had lots of leftover toasted coconut and a little bit of leftover coconut buttercream. So one morning I got a hankering for some coconuts and berries. So I threw together some cooked quinoa, added some berries and coconut milk, and topped with coconut buttercream and toasted coconut. It was amazing and tasted like I was having dessert for breakfast which is a big thumbs up in my book.
