Coconut Milk & Quinoa Porridge

July 13, 2013 2 min read

Hi Everyone, Quinoa is an ingredient that I’ve only started experimenting with. Altho I have an inability to pronounce it lol Quinoa is fast becoming my favourite superfood. Quinoa has many benefits - this ancient grain is one of the most protein rich foods you can eat and that it has twice as much fibre as other grains. Like all other grains it’s fairly bland by itself but it comes to life with the addition of yummy herbs, spices and nuts in both sweet and savoury dishes. Lately I’ve been making a variation on traditional porridge loaded with a heap of nuts, dried fruit, chia and sunflower seeds and using quinoa instead of oats. It’s proved to be quite a hit! This is my favourite recipe for Hot Quinoa. It's so easy to make & can be made with or without coconut milk :). Coconut Milk & Quinoa Porridge Serves: 2 Cooking Time: 15 minutes What’s in it?  1 cup Quinoa, rinsed Handful of dried fruits, I used goji berries, cranberries and sultanas 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon Vanilla Pod 1 1/2 cups coconut milk Handful of chopped nuts, I used almonds and pistachios 1 teaspoon chia seeds 1 tablespoon sunflower kernels How You Make It? Place quinoa, dried fruit, cinnamon, 1 cup of coconut milk and 1 cup of water in a small saucepan over high heat. Allow liquid to reduce by half and then cover with a lid and simmer until almost all liquid is absorbed and quinoa is cooked through. Add 1/2 cup of coconut milk into saucepan, stir well and heat through the milk. Remove from heat. Top porridge with nuts, chia seeds and sunflower kernels. Serve warm! Tip: Be experimental, add your choice of healthy additions like seasonal fruits and berries too!   Please share your Quinoa recipe's below ....   Enjoy L xx   My Favourite Quick Clean Eating Chicken Curry - Here

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
