Put some variety and nutrition into the start of your day with my healthy and delicious breakfast puddings. These recipes are really easy to double or triple if you are feeding others or if you want to have a few in the fridge ready to go for the week.
APPLE COCONUT BUCKWHEAT PARFAIT
½ cup raw buckwheat (soak in water in the fridge overnight)
½ cup plain yogurt (use coconut yogurt if avoiding dairy)
2 apples or ½ cup applesauce/pureed apple
2 tablespoons flaxmeal
1 tablespoon desiccated coconut
1 teaspoon stevia (honey or maple syrup would be great too)
- IF USING APPLES: Wash and core apples, add to a small saucepan with ¼ cup water and bring to a gentle simmer for 8 minutes.
- Once cooked leave apples to cool, do not drain (I make this the night before when I measure out my buckwheat and soak).
- In morning drain and rinse buckwheat and add to food processor or blender together with apple mixture, flaxmeal and stevia. Blend well. (I usually stop the blender to scrape down the sides and then blend again)
- Add yogurt and coconut and blend again.
- Spoon into jars, cups or bowls and add some extra yogurt and coconut toppings.
