  • ¼ cup / 50gbuckwheat groats
  • 10 raw Brazil nuts / cashews or macadamia nuts for maximum creaminess
  • 1 cup/ 250ml water
  • ½ banana
  • 1 tablespoon nut or seed butter I use homemade
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • ¼ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Pumpkin Swirl

  • 2 tablespoons cooked pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin spice
  • 1 teaspoon raw honey


  • Soak buckwheat groats overnight.
  • In the morning strain and rinse the soaked groats well.
  • Place them in a blender.
  • Add water and all remaining ingredients.
  • Blend until smooth.
  • Pour into a small saucepan and warm through on the stovetop. Keep an eye on it as it thickens quickly! You may also microwave on high for one to two minutes.
  • Dress with pumpkin swirl or preferred toppings. I also like bananas, seasonal fruit and Omega seed sprinkles.
