So my friend Camille was talking to me the other day and said "when are you going to start blogging again? Even if you take a picture of a bowl of cereal." Well, Camille... I am BACK! Yay! And this porridge is LOADS better than cereal :) Thanks for keeping me on the ball Camille! This one is for you!
Buckwheat is one of a few grains that is an alkaline forming food. Just check out ALL these benefits of Buckwheat.
This breakfast is filling, easy and fast to make, delicious and so nutritious for you! I hope you enjoy!
*Makes 4 servings or 2 large servings.
1 1/2 cups buckwheat groats (non-kashi or non cooked)
1/2 cup water
1 to 2 tsp cinnamon
1 cup almond milk
2 Tb pure maple syrup (or use coconut nectar, agave)
1 tsp pure vanilla extract
2 tsp coconut oil (optional)
1/3 cup raw almonds
2 ripe peaches
Add Buckwheat, water, cinnamon, almond milk, maple syrup and vanilla to glass bowl. Cover and refrigerate overnight. *You are not cooking the buckwheat, so it has it's full optimal nutrition. The buckwheat will absorb the liquid similar to oats.
Meanwhile, in separate small glass bowl, add raw almonds and cover with plenty of filtered or distilled water. *You are sprouting your almonds, also softening them. This helps with the blending process, but also increases the nutrition value of the almond and is easy and better for your body to digest. In the morning, discard liquid and rinse almonds before using.
In morning, add buckwheat, rinsed almonds, coconut oil, 1/2 peach (optional) and extra almond milk (if needed) to blender and blend until just smooth. Blend less or more depending on how smooth you like your porridge. Also, add more milk if you don't like it thick.
Serve with peaches. Hope you enjoy this cool, refreshing, filling, nutritious breakfast as much as I do!
