Breakfast Time!

If you have allergies to dairy and gluten, then you know as well as I that breakfast can be the most challenging meal of the day! Fortunately, Pinterest has some awesome ideas for Coconut Quinoa Pudding and Chocolate Banana Breakfast Quinoa and they both sound absolutely delicious!
I took both ideas and kind of merged them together to create a delicious Chocolate Coconut Banana Breakfast Quinoa!
Gluten and dairy free, as always and the entire recipe is only 5 Weight Watchers points (I made this and could only eat half - so I've chilled it and will eat it tomorrow morning).

Kath's Chocolate Coconut Banana Breakfast Quinoa
1/4 cup quinoa, uncooked
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup light coconut milk (I like Thai Kitchen)
1 tbsp. unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp. honey
1 banana, mashed

Cook quinoa in small stove top. Once all water has evaporated and quinoa has cooked, reduce heat to medium, and add mashed banana and coconut milk and stir. Add cocoa powder and honey and stir again. 
Once everything is thoroughly combined, remove from heat and let sit, covered, for about 5 minutes.
Pour into small bowl and enjoy!
