– 2 cups cooked quinoa

Having leftover quinoa to use in this recipe makes it even easier, but if you’re making it fresh, do that first. The recipe calls for about two cups of fluffy quinoa, which means you’ll need to start out with 1 cup of dry quinoa and 2 cups of water.
With the quinoa ready, add it to a large skillet along with a pinch of salt and the lemon juice. Then add the soy milk and 1 sliced banana (slice and reserve other banana for garnish). Turn the heat to medium-low and give these ingredients about 5 minutes to simmer, stirring occasionally.
Next add all of the berries, walnuts, vanilla and maple syrup and stir another 5 minutes until most of the soy milk is absorbed and everything is blending together beautifully. Stir in the Herbalife Protein Drink Mix. Garnish with remaining banana slices and some fresh chopped mint leaves and enjoy.
