KL's ORGANIC QUINOA SMOOTHIE

This is the first time I've tried this smoothie but just like all of the others, it's the BOMB!!
Using leftover cooked quinoa from the other night, I decided to use quinoa as the main ingredient to blend into a deliciously healthy, creamy-like smoothie! 

Prep time: 0 min
Cook time: 0 min
Serves: 1-2

Ingredients:

Organic Quinoa (1 cup cooked)
Organic Banana (1 peeled)
Organic Raw Walnut (1/2 cup)
Organic Raw Blue Agave Syrup (2 tablespoon)
Spring Water (1 1/3 cup)
Ground Cinnamon (.5 tablespoon)
Spring Water Ice cubes (optional)

I usually measure by "eyeballing" it so you can add more/less of the above ingredients to your liking/taste.

Prep:

Add the following ingredients to your blender and blend on highest setting for 2 minutes until smooth.

<How to cook Quinoa>
Quinoa cooks up best using the 1:2 ratio ( 1 cup quinoa:2 cups water).
Add quinoa and water to a medium pot and simmer for 15-20 minutes until light and fluffy.
Should be moist to the touch when complete.
