- My Notes -

  • 0.5 cup Quinoa
  • 0.5 cup Coconut Milk
  • 2 teaspoon Clover Honey
  • 4 tablespoon Yogurt - (coconut yogurt) (see notes)
  • To make the porridge, bring 1 cup of water to a boil in a saucepan. Place the quinoa into the boiling water. Bring back to a boil, then reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat, take off the lid, and stir in the coconut milk.
  • To serve, divide between two bowls, top with a dollop of coconut yogurt and a drizzle of clover honey.
Please see our Coconut Yogurt recipe or 24 Hour Yogurt recipe, which are both lactose free. Green Valley Yogurt makes a no lactose version, but it also has pectin in it.
We recommend Native Forest brand canned coconut milk, without thickeners or sweeteners.
Honey contains fructose. Northern latitude honey (clover, raspberry, alfalfa) contain a closer ratio of fructose to glucose than tropical honey (like the honey that Monash University tested and noted as a high fodmap food). Since northern latitude honey contains a closer ratio of fructose to glucose, this improves fructose absorption and we find that many people with fructose intolerance can enjoy a small amount of northern latitude honey. Please try this and see how you do (easy enough to test out in tea, like Rooibos tea).
Guest Guru Patsy Catsos recommends to her patients and readers, to not include honey. If you were referred to GutRxGurus by Patsy, please omit honey from this recipe. We're happy to make a suitable substitution suggestion. Feel free to post a question in the forum!
