3 serves of whole grain
Each serve is 16g of whole grain. GLNC recommends 3 serves daily.

Serves: 2

Preparation time: 5 minutes


  • ½ cup milk or milk alternative
  • 2 tablespoons Greek-style yoghurt
  • ½ cup cooked quinoa
  • 2 tablespoons pepita seeds
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup, plus extra for drizzling

Topping options

  • ½ cup chopped almonds
  • 2 tablespoons pomegranate seeds (frozen seeds are available from supermarkets)
  • ½ cup blueberries
  • Or use any chopped seasonal fruit!


  1. Place cooked quinoa in a small mixing bowl with milk, chia seeds, pepita seeds and maple syrup.
  2. Cover and allow to rest in the fridge overnight.
