Creamy Coconut Quinoa Pudding

Gretchen Noelle

My love of food was cultivated early on by my family but has come alive while living in Peru. During the 12 years of living in Lima, Peru, I have also enjoyed numerous trips to other areas of the country. Here on Provecho Peru you will find Peruvian recipes in English, American favorites prepared overseas, news about Peruvian Cuisine and interesting tidbits about life in Peru.

  3. Cakespy says:

    Now that looks GOOD.

  4. Karen says:

    Yum! Coconut would be an amazing flavor in this pudding. I have yet to find a pebble in my quinoa, but I’m fortunate to get mine from Trader Joes!

    This sounds wonderful. I need to pick up some quinoa to try it with, I would also love to try it with brown rice. Sounds delicious! I can’t wait to give it a try :)

    As a Peruvian-American, I love this blog and enjoy all the recipes. I enjoy your perspective on Peruvian culture as well.

  7. Deborah says:

    I’m not usually a big rice pudding fan, but I really am wanting to try this out! Maybe because I love coconut so much…

  8. Aran says:

    that looks fantastic. Love the quinoa instead of rice. should try that soon.

  9. Cindy says:

    The recipe calls for 1/2 cup sugar, divided. Where is the other 1/4 cup used? Did I miss something? I’m definitely going to try this soon.

  10. Julie says:

    Another delicious use for Quinoa, I love it.

  11. Brilynn says:

    That looks great, I would love to have fresh coconut!

  12. Joy the Baker says:

    More quinoa! I love it. What a fantastic idea! And insurance for political demonstrations!? That’s both funny and troubling…

  13. Cakelaw says:

    This looks sensational Gretchen. I love rice pudding, and this reminds me a lot of that.

  14. Kevin says:

    Using quinoa to make a pudding is a great idea. Especially for a coconut pudding. Bookmarked.

    RecipeGirl – You really must try quinoa in both sweet and savory dishes.
    Jessy – Thanks!
    Cakespy – Thanks! It was delicious!
    Karen – I am glad to hear that the quinoa there may be better cleaned.
    Stephchows – Yes, with rice I think it would be delicious and may even get creamier.
    Romy – I do apologize if you found my comment offensive. It certainly wasn’t meant with the intention you read it with.
    Deborah – I love rice pudding a lot but this was a nice change to have the coconut flavoring.
    Aran – The quinoa may not end up as creamy but I love knowing I am eating a healthy grain.
    Julie – Thanks for pointing that out! The extra 1/4 cup is stirred in after it simmers and most of the liquid is absorbed. I will update it right now!
    Brilynn – Me too!
    Joy – Yes, more quinoa! Insurance…yes, well…it is necessary!
    Cakelaw – Thanks! It is a lot like rice pudding, just with a different grain and with coconut flavor. nice change!
    Kevin – Thanks! I loved the nutty flavor in quinoa paired with the coconut. Delicious!

    I love quinoa, but haven’t had it in a sweet dish yet. This sounds delicious! I’m not sure if I’d like the idea of driving though violent demonstration, though! I don’t get that kind of excitement.

  17. Half Baked says:

    I’ve never tried quinoa, but your pudding looks great. I love the toasted coconut, it looks yummy!

  18. Anali says:

    This looks great! I’m going to try some quinoa pudding soon!

  19. bbaking says:

    ooh yummy scrummy! I love coconuts, there is nothing like fresh ones and I never realised how good they were until I tried them in Thailand.

  20. Annemarie says:

    What an interesting way to use quinoa! I recently bought quinoa flakes and haven’t yet figured out what to do with them. I do love the flavor combos in this.

  21. Jaime says:

    i love fresh coconut! and i wish i had pretty star fruit to garnish my dishes too :)

  22. Gretchen Noelle says:

    Kellypea – I hope you try quinoa with something sweet, it adds a nice nutty flavor!
    Half Baked – Oh, do try quinoa it is delicious and so good for you!
    Anali – Hope you do!
    Bev – Sad there are not fresh coconuts there!
    Annemarie – Flakes? As in similar to oat flakes? Or more like bran cereal flakes? I use the flakes (similar to oats) as a oatmeal replacement in recipes.
    Jaime – Fresh coconut is delicious. Sorry about the star fruit. We have them in abundance here. I have picked them off trees. :)
