healthy quinoa apple kheer

 Anybody who's grown up in an Indian family will agree that the festive season is the beginning of incredibly delicious, but rich, high calorie food. But if you're on a diet or trying to eat healthy and are looking for healthy dessert ideas, I've got you covered! Enter: This Healthy Quinoa Apple Kheer. This kheer is 'healthier' than traditional Indian sweets, which is really saying something! It's made with quinoa, which is considered to be a superfood. Rich in antioxidants, fiber and minerals, it can absorb copious amounts of water, which makes it perfect for making kheer.

  • Most kheer recipes recommend using full fat milk, but since we're trying to make this dessert healthy, I have replaced that with skimmed milk. You can still use full fat milk if you prefer.
  • This kheer thickens as it cools down, so be careful with the amount of quinoa you add. Too much quinoa will change the texture and make it lumpy instead of creamy.
  • If the kheer feels too thick, you can easily adjust the consistency by adding a little water or milk before serving.
