    Are you using cooked or uncooked quinoa in this recipe? I’m assuming it is cooked in which came you may not need to rinse it.

    My second thought was that this would be delicious with frozen blueberries as well.

    Can’t wait to try it the next time I have leftover quinoa.

    Cooked quinoa. You should alwyas rinse the quinoa before you cook it.
    I just had this smoothie for lunch and I love it. I used my leftover quinoa from last nights dinner.
