Quinoa Breakfast Bowl
1/3 cup Florida orange juice
1 tbsp maple syrup
1 tsp matcha powder
1/2 cup red quinoa, rinsed
1 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup berries; any combination of raspberries, blueberries or blackberries

Combine Florida orange juice, maple syrup and matcha in a lidded glass jar. Shake vigorously to combine and set aside.
Combine quinoa, almond milk and salt in a small sauce pot, set over medium-high heat and bring to a boil.
Decrease heat to low, cover and cook 15 minutes or until the liquid has absorbed and the quinoa has uncurled and looks like spirals.
Remove quinoa from heat and set aside, covered, for 5 minutes. Uncover and fluff with a fork.
To serve, divide quinoa and sauce between two bowls.
Top each bowl with berries and almonds and serve warm.
Helpful tip: Top with any of your favorite healthy toppings, such as granola or chia seeds.
