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 my 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 porridge really is a stomach soothing, delicious and easy breakfast.
- ½ cup raw buckwheat
- 1 banana
- 1 tbsp baobab powder
- ginger powder
- ⅓ cup rice milk
- water for soaking
- Rinse the buckwheat well and put into a bowl with water to soak. Put the lid on and leave in the fridge over night.
- Discard the water from soaking and rinse the buckwheat again.
- Put the buckwheat, banana, baobab and ginger in a blender or food processor and pulse. Add the milk slowly and pulse until you have the desired consistency!
I’m off to burry myself in books again for my thesis, even tough I wish I could just spend the whole day outside – it’s beautiful outside! Btw. hop on over to Facebook, if you want to stay up to date on all my posts from the blog, Instagram and also to get some Facebook only content, like a little video I shot this morning 😉
