I love a good green smoothie for breakfast. It is the thing I eat most often in the morning. But sometimes I need to change it up. Especially days that I have boot camp or a long-distance run. I like to have something a wee bit more substantial (I’m not hating on my green smoothie – it is super filling most days!). And some mornings, a gal just likes her carbs.
Enter buckwheat. I LOVE buckwheat. Especially raw. After you soak it, it makes this weird, kind of mushy, sticky texture. And it is glorious.
Buckwheat Breaky (serves 2)
1/2 cup buckwheat groats (soaked in water in a bowl on the counter for 8 hours, drained & rinsed)
3/4 cup hemp milk
2 tbsp chia seeds
2 tbsp cacao powder
2 tbsp maca powder (or protein powder)
2 tsp cinnamon
1-2 figs (I used 2)
Put all of the ingredients in your food processor & whiz to combine. I soak the buckwheat groats in the morning & then make this the night before & let it sit in the fridge overnight. You can always just soak your groats overnight and make it in the morning and eat it right away, but I find it gets a thicker consistency if you let it sit overnight. Top with fresh fruit & enjoy.
Have a great weekend all! See you back here Monday =)
