What is quinoa milk, how is it made, what does it do

What is quinoa milk? Quinoa, which we all heard of at least once, is an indispensable food on diet lists. Because it is gluten-free, it is a food that celiac patients can easily consume. Since it is a complete protein, that is, it contains all of the essential amino acids, it can keep the person full for a long time. Thanks to its high fiber content, it facilitates digestion, prevents constipation, accelerates metabolism, and positively affects the weight loss process; In addition, it prevents heart diseases, diabetes, and high blood pressure due to its low glycemic index. It is also good for anemia due to its iron content, it is also a powerful antioxidant due to the vitamin B2 in it. It has a lowering effect on LDL and total cholesterol while keeping HDL high.


Although it is a cereal that we count so many benefits, we cannot say that people include quinoa in their diet. We thought maybe we could make a nice drink if we made the milk. It can be a delicious, lactose-free, and vegan alternative to milk. You can use it not only by drinking but also by applying it to your hair; Recommended for more groomed, shinier hair.

Here is the recipe!!

* 1/2 cup quinoa

* Water for soaking and cooking
* 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract (optional)
* 1 teaspoon of cinnamon powder (optional)
* 1 tablespoon of honey (optional)


* Soak the quinoa overnight in water enough to cover it.
* The next day, strain the wetting water of the quinoa and boil 1 glass of water, add the quinoa and boil it a second time, then close the lid of the pan and cook for 15 more minutes on low heat.
* Put the softened quinoa in the blender or mixer and add 2 glasses of water and mix on a high setting until smooth.
* Strain the liquid through a fine strainer or a thin cloth such as cheesecloth. Your milk also drains on its own, but you can speed up the process by squeezing the cheesecloth or pressing the strainer.
* Pour the filtered liquid back into the blender or mixer and add water until it reaches the desired consistency. (gradually and by mixing after each addition)
* If you want, add vanilla extract, cinnamon, and honey to your milk. Consume it cold or hot. You can keep quinoa milk in the refrigerator for 3-5 days. 
Enjoy your meal!
