Brew coffee and pour into a saucepan along with rinsed quinoa. Bring to a boil and reduce to simmer, cover and simmer for 15 minutes. Then remove the quinoa from the heat and let it rest, still covered, for 5 more minutes. Pour the cooked coffee quinoa into a serving bowl.
Meanwhile we'll make the date caramel. Pour 18 pitted and quarted dates into a food processor. Add in salt, vanilla and almond milk (or any milk of choice). Process until creamy. Add in more milk, 1 tbsp at a time, until you reach the desired consistency. I stopped at pretty thick.
Date milk: Pour milk, vanilla and 1 tbsp of the date caramel into a small saucepan. Heat up, but not boil. Pour this warm date milk over the cooked coffee quinoa (as much as you want).
Then add the healthy power boost toppings. I had almonds, hemp seeds and sunflower seeds. All are really good for you and super easy to get down in this delicious date caramel macchiato breakfast quinoa. I also loved dolloping more of the date caramel on top, because hello, it's caramel.
