    Can I microwave pinole rather than use the stove top….every minute counts in the morning!

      Thanks for your questions Trish! You can! Try filling a coffee mug halfway with milk or milk substitute and then adding in two heaping spoonfuls of your favorite flavor of Purely Pinole. Dissolve the pinole completely so it looks like chocolate milk. Microwave for 1 min. Remove and stir to de-clump. Then zap it for another 25 seconds and you’ll have a delicious pinole breakfast on the go! This also works great for the office!
