Raw Baobab Buckwheat Porridge

Hello Monday! How was your weekend guys? I hope you had some time to relax and enjoy the nice weather (if you hopefully had some!). Everything is starting to bloom around here and the temperatures are starting to rise as well. This makes me crave more raw, cool breakfast and I also feel that I need some additional vitamins and nutrients in there, to combat that sluggishness that is still lingering there from the winter time. Introduce baobab! I head over heels fell in love with this power house of a fruit (check out myΒ Superfood Berry ‘Nicecream recipe for more information about baobab) – it’s not being called the feel good fruit for nothing. In my attempts to add it to literally everything, I found out that the flavors of the raw buckwheat porridge and of baobab went especially well together, which in turn inspired this recipe: raw baobab buckwheat porridge!

This recipe is really a no fuss, quick “put it all in a blender and go” recipe – the only real preparation you have to do, is to put the buckwheat to soak in the fridge the night before. In the morning you really just need to rinse the buckwheat, put everything in a blender (or food processor) and you are good to go. It keeps me full for a long time, but does not weigh me down, like some oatmeal can sometimes do to me. It is also something that settles my stomach, if I managed to upset it the day before – no guarantee or promise that this will work for everyone, but for me raw baobab buckwheat porridgeΒ really is a stomach soothing, delicious and easy breakfast.

  1. That looks very good, you really have a talent for translating “yumminess” on pictures πŸ˜‰ and I love the new addition to your repertoire of creativeness, love the beach photos and the flowers. Keep it up Kat.

    1. Thank you so much, E. πŸ™‚ I’m glad you like the pictures, and well, if you want you can try the recipes too πŸ˜‰ Oh, and I’m happy that I’m not the only one how like the pictures I post on my personal Instagram πŸ˜€

  2. Giant bowl of creamy nourishing goodness that’s actually healthy for me? Okay!!

    I’ve been curious about baobab for a while, and I was even more curious after reading your last post about all the awesome benefits, but what does it taste like? Some of those superfood type things just taste awful in my opinion (like lucuma), so does it have a strong flavor?

    1. Right? I love that too – a big creamy delicious bowl that is absolutely doing good to your body πŸ™‚ Baobab has a slightly citrus taste, with a mild caramel, vanilla note too. It’s hard to describe, but it’s a very pleasant taste to me! The flavor is also not very strong, to me it gives the buckwheat porridge just a more fresh, citrus note with still the “warmness” that the ginger powder and also the vanilla and caramel notes give it πŸ™‚ Probably you can get a little single use sachet somewhere, so you can try it “risk free” πŸ™‚

      1. That sounds like a wonderful flavor! If only I can find it in the bulk bins, that’s the best way to try a teeny tiny bit for cheap πŸ™‚

        1. Yes, that’s right – I think they sometimes also sell single serving sachets for a few cents πŸ™‚ If you lived closer I would send you some to try!

    1. Thank you so so much! That is quite the compliment to me πŸ™‚ Try it, changing from a more “regular” breakfast (toast with butter and jelly) to porridge (be it cold or warm) has changed my life!

    1. Haha, I’m such a little enabler πŸ˜‰ No, but seriously, it’s one of the few superfood ingredients where I can really tell a difference right after eating it. It might be in my mind, but oh well, that’s a good effect then as well πŸ˜€

    1. Baobab powder is not very well known yet, but it tastes really yummy and is very high in vitamins and nutrients πŸ™‚ Thank you, Nina!

    1. Hey Crystal, buckwheat is really delicious – either raw like in this recipe, or cooked, or used in form of the flour for baking. I have quite a few recipes using buckwheat, you can have a look at them here: http://curlsnchard.com/tag/buckwheat/ Thank you for stopping by!

    1. Thank you so much Shonda! Yes, it is a wonderful breakfast for the whole family – just soak the buckwheat over night and then it’s ready in minutes the next morning! πŸ™‚

    1. Thank you Linh! I’m glad to hear that the juice detox helped you πŸ™‚ I can highly recommend this recipe to you – have a look around on my blog, I have loads and loads of healthy, tasty and easy recipes πŸ™‚
