Look ok, I admit it. This is a post that’s all about two amazing recipes really and not one.. can you forgive me..?
I am never the kind of girl who likes making just one thing at a time!
I am on a breakfast roll at the moment – making sure that I start the day the right way by giving myself some activated living nourishment and today is no exception! Having perfected the Chia & Oat Pudding and played with a number of versions I was looking for a new recipe to continue with the excitement in the morning.
I thoroughly love my Chia & Oat Pudding (pictured above) that I often have for breakfast especially at Raw Juice Camp, but wanted to ‘blend it all up’ so it made a chia & oat smoothie. I did. It was delicious. I recommend it! I didn’t get the chance to take a pic as it went down so quickly!
I am always soaking some seeds or nuts in the kitchen and I absolutely adore buckwheat – for it’s nutritional goodness but also for the taste. It’s just so satiating and delicious! I made a batch of almond milk with the last of the nuts I picked up at my Summer Retreat in Portugal last summer (so they are a mixture of bitter and sweet almonds – delish!) and made a batch of my Overnight Chia & Oat Pudding and left the kitchen for the evening.
Come morning time I separated the batch in to two – and kept one batch of pudding and simply topped with milled activated pumpkin seeds and a pinch of bee pollen. OMG. Fair to say it was pretty terrific! And not laden with sweetness and stickiness, which was just the ticket.
Then I blended the other half of the batch with some soaked and sprouted buckwheat (sprouting for 2 days) with half a frozen banana, a teaspoon of lucuma and a teaspoon of bee pollen with some of the almond milk leftover from the night before making my chia puddings. Oooh lala! Delish. I couldn’t decide which one to post so I thought I would post both!
Beautifully served in my Nana’s teacups. Bliss.
