Creamy Banana Carob Breakfast Buckwheat Pudding
Serves: Serves 1
 
Ingredients
  • ½ ripe banana
  • ½ cup milk of choice (I used home made almond milk)
  • 2 tbsp carob powder
  • 1 cup cooked buckwheat
  • ½ banana, cut into small chunks (save a few slices to garnish)
  • 1 tbsp cacao nibs
Garnish
  • ½ scoop vanilla flavored whey protein powder
  • 1 tbsp fat free Greek yogurt
  • ½ tsp cacao nibs
  • Fresh mint leaves
  • Banana slices
  • Additional milk, if desired
Instructions
  1. Add banana, milk and carob powder to your small blender or food processor and process until smooth.
  2. Transfer to a small saucepan and heat over medium low heat until it simmers.
  3. Add cooked buckwheat, lower the heat and continue cooking, stirring often, until the mixture becomes thick and creamy.
  4. While buckwheat is cookingk, add protein powder and yogurt to a small mixing bowl and mix until smooth and creamy (just mix to combine, let rest for a minute or two and stir again until smooth)
  5. When buckwheat has reached the right consistency, remove from heat, stir in banana chunks and cacao nibs.
  6. Transfer to serving bowl, top with yogurt mixture and sprinkle cacao nibs. Garnish with mint leaf and banana slices, if desired.
