A New Way To Enjoy Quinoa I Bet You Haven't Tried Yet

Drinking quinoa?

Say whaaaaat?

This isn’t some strange new health trend. It’s just creativity at it’s finest!

Drinking quinoa is as easy as whipping up a delicious and nutritious protein smoothie (thanks to Organifi Complete Protein).

But first...

What Is Quinoa?

Quinoa is a grain crop that originated in Peru, Bolivia, Colombia, Chile and Ecuador over 3,000 years ago!

As a member of the flowering plant family, Amaranthaceae, quinoa is closely related to beetroot, spinach and amaranth and is harvested for its edible seeds.

Quinoa seeds are processed to remove their outer layer, which have a bitter taste and then are cooked in the same way as rice.

Why Eat Quinoa?

  • 1 cup of cooked quinoa has 8 grams of protein
  • Excellent source of iron
  • Full of antioxidants, vitamins and minerals
  • Contains lysine, which is essential for tissue repair and growth
  • Has twice as much fiber as other grains
  • Full of manganese

How To Drink Quinoa

It’s not as strange as it sounds - especially if you are using Organifi’s Complete Protein powder.

We included quinoa powder as part of our organic protein blend.  This shake can keep you soothed and satisfied for hours and is the perfect solution for when you are in a hurry, but want a healthy meal.

Orange Creamsicle Protein Smoothie

Ingredients:

  • 2 scoops Complete Protein Powder
  • ¾ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ¾ cup freshly squeeze orange juice
  • 1 tsp organic vanilla extract
  • 1 cup ice (or more as needed)

There you have it! You just drank quinoa - and it’s not as weird as you thought - right?
