Creamy Buckwheat Porridge
1 cup raw buckwheat groats (not kashi)
2 medjool dates, pitted
3 tablespoons unsweetened soy, hemp or almond milk or more as needed
1 teaspoon alcohol-free vanilla extract
1 teaspoon chia seeds
2 tablespoons any variety of raw nuts or seeds
1 tablespoon goji berries or other unsulfured dried fruit
1/2 cup berries or other fruit
Soak buckwheat groats overnight in 2 cups of water. If the dates are not moist, soak them overnight too. The next morning, drain and rinse the buckwheat and the dates.
Place buckwheat, dates, non-dairy milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and chia seeds in a food processor and blend until smooth. It should be a creamy consistency. You may need to add more non-dairy milk to get the right consistency
Top with nuts or seeds, dried and fresh fruit.
