Creamy Pudding with Quinoa

Want a dessert that tastes good, but isn’t super heavy? Then we’ve got just the sweet treat you’ve been looking for! This Creamy Brown Sugar Cinnamon Pudding is our not-so-guilty pleasure, made with Success® Boil-in-Bag Tri-Color Quinoa and all the fixings.

With a touch of vanilla, coconut milk and a dash of cinnamon, this treat is full of warm, tropical flavors. The addition of coconut milk makes our Success® Tri-Color Quinoa even tastier and gives this recipe a luscious, creamy texture.

Besides the coconut milk, this quinoa pudding gets a boost of velvety and rich texture from another key ingredient — egg yolks. That’s right, we’ll walk you through how to incorporate whisked egg yolks into hot quinoa until the mixture has fully thickened.

Once set, you’ll work on your homemade meringue. Not to worry — it’s a lot easier than it sounds! Read our instructions below and you’ll be set.

Homemade Meringue, Made Easy

You need egg yolks for the pudding so it makes sense to save the egg whites to make a meringue topping for this impressive dessert. To do so, simply beat egg whites in a very clean bowl until soft peaks form. Add 1-2 tablespoons of sugar and continue to beat until stiff peaks form. For best results, use immediately.
