Place the SoL Sunflower Beverage and quinoa in a small saucepan and bring to a boil, reduce heat and cover.  Simmer for 10 to 12 minutes until the Sol is absorbed.

While the quinoa is simmering, in a pan or in the oven (at 350 degrees) toast your nuts and coconut to golden brown and fragrant, watching carefully to not burn.

Mix the cinnamon, nuts, coconut and fresh fruit into the warm quinoa and serve immediately.

Notes: The nuts used in this recipe were pecans.  You can use nut butter, dried fruit, or any mix you have on hand. This recipe is very flexible, change it up to your liking!
