Choc Quinoa Pudding

Now I call this a pudding but I actually eat it for breakfast or a snack! Most weeks I’ll prepare a batch of quinoa and store it in the fridge to add to salads but I also love it as a pudding. I generally eat it straight from the fridge but you could always heat it up a little for a warming breakfast or snack. Topped with a few berries and a little yoghurt it makes for a simple little treat.

The serving size is suitable if you’re on the low FODMAP diet and is in line with the Monash University FODMAP Diet App and the FODMAP Friendly app (at the time of writing).
