  1. In a large medium-sized pot, combine the quinoa with 4 cups of water and bring to a boil. Lower heat to a simmer and cook uncovered until the grains are tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat. Do not strain.
  2. Transfer the cooked quinoa and water to a blender, and add an additional 2 cups of water. Blend until smooth. If needed, add more water, a ½ cup at a time, to thin the mixture to a drinkable consistency.
  3. Add maple syrup and blend well.
  4. Sprinkle cinnamon to your desired taste. Serve warm.
