Date and Cacao Buckwheat Porridge


Time: 10 minutes maximum

Makes: One serve

Ingredients: Half a cup of buckwheat flakes, 1 cup of water, half a cup of blueberries(fresh or frozen), 1 tablespoon of cacao powder, 5 chopped up dates, coconut flakes, quarter of a cup of coconut milk, yoghurt and honey to serve if desired.


Steps: Place the buckwheat flakes, water and blueberries in a small saucepan. Bring to a medium heat, stirring constantly with a wooden spoon. Continue heating in this way until the water is absorbed and it looks porridge-y. Take off the heat and stir through the cacao and chopped dates. Transfer to a bowl, sprinkle with coconut flakes, and pour coconut milk over top. Dollop some natural yoghurt on top, and a good drizzle of honey if you’re not sweet enough!
