Ingredients
  • 2 scoops Herbalife Nutrition Protein Drink Mix, Vanilla
  • 2 medium apples (I used Honeycrisp)
  • ½ cup quinoa
  • ¾ cups water
  • 1 cup low-fat milk
  • ¼ cup raisins
  • 1 ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • dash of salt
Instructions
  • Remove core from apples but leave on the skin. Chop finely. 
  • Mix quinoa, water, milk, raisins, cinnamon, salt and apples in a large saucepan.  
  • Bring to a boil, cover and reduce to simmer for 20 minutes. The apples will be soft, and the quinoa will have absorbed the liquid. 
  • Remove from heat and stir in Protein Drink Mix.  
  • Divide among two bowls. Serve with a little extra milk, if desired.
