Recipe: Kylie’s Apples (or Pears) and Quinoa

This easy little recipe comes from my amazing nanny who helps us with the twins. It makes an awesome dessert or a snack and adults will love it just as much as little ones!



  • 8 apples or pears – skin on or off – quartered (you could also do a bit of each!)
  • 500 mL of water or coconut water
  • ½ tsp vanilla bean paste
  • ½ tsp grated fresh ginger
  • Sprinkle of cinnamon
  • ⅓ cup quinoa



  • Add apples/pears, water/coconut water, vanilla bean paste, ginger and cinnamon to a saucepan and simmer till soft
  • For ease, blend all cooked ingredients in the saucepan with a handheld mixer
  • Add quinoa to the puree and simmer until quinoa is soft. The mixture will be deliciously thick!
  • Enjoy warm or cool.
