1/2 banana, chopped
1 small apple, chopped (keep peel on)

Serve with: cinnamon for a sweet smell, and honey if you want a sweeter taste.

Add the milk, water and quinoa to a saucepan
Bring to the boil, reduce the heat, and simmer for about 10 -15 minutes, or until all the liquid has been absorbed.
Dish into bowls and add some milk if desired.
Add the banana and apple and mix well.
