Buckwheat is a protein rich, gluten free grain, known for it's nutty flavour. Using buckwheat, soaked overnight it softens the grain and allows for a creamy texture. You can add just about anything to a buckwheat bircher but we've found this combination works the best. 

You can make a bigger batch as it will last 2-3 days in the fridge. 

Serves 1

- 100g buckwheat groats

- a small handful of cashews

- 50g blackberries

- 1 teaspoon of acai powder (optional)

- zest of one lemon

- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

- 1 teaspoon cinnamon

- 1 teaspoon raw honey

- 2 tablespoons coconut cream or milk

For the garnish - you can use anything here but we have used:

- 1 tablespoon of mixed sunflower and pumpkin seeds

- 1 teaspoon goji berries

- a pinch of linseeds

Soak the buckwheat groats and cashews in water overnight.  When you are ready to serve and eat your bircher, save a few blackberries for the garnish and blend all of the ingredients until you get a smooth texture. You can add a little more almond milk or coconut cream / milk here if you like a lighter consistency. 

Garnish, serve and enjoy.
