    Chocolate Buckwheat Porridge (VEG, GF, LF)

    Let’s talk about fasting … In the last few years I have heard more and more people fasting, especially during the Great Lent. Most do so because of religion and belief, but there are some who see it as a good opportunity for detox. Either way, fasting is definitely something good for your health. Throughout the year, and during fasting as well, a good and nutritious breakfast is necessary! That’s why today I have for you a great idea for a super nutritious breakfast, which is suitable for fasting period: a chocolate porridge with buckwheat and Alpro unsweetened almond drink, which you can prepare in just 5 minutes!

    I often fast, unfortunately not all of the Great Lent because of work, but very often. Alpro drinks have saved me because they often cover the need for a good and tasty breakfast during the fasting period, giving you more choices. You don’t have to eat the same thing everyday 😉 I always choose the unsweetened almond drink, and I have a delicious white canvas to which I can add whatever I want 🙂

    This chocolate porridge with buckwheat is a gluten-free option, but you can also do it with oats. Also, instead of cocoa, you can use carob powder. It can stand in the refrigerator for 3-4 days, so making more servings at once, you are covered for many breakfasts. I have tried it with a pinch of cayenne pepper and it was great, so I recommend it to you.

    A gluten-free chocolate and buckwheat porridge, to make your breakfasts even tastier!

    Ingredients

    • 120 gr. buckwheat flakes
    • 2 cups (500ml) Alpro unsweetened almond drink
    • 80 gr. honey or maple syrup
    • 1 tbsp coconut oil
    • 2 tbsp cocoa powder or carob powder
    • ½ tsp cinnamon
    • ¼ tsp salt
    • a pinch of cayenne pepper (optional)
    • garnish:
    • fresh fruits
    • cocoa nibs
    • nuts
    • extra honey or maple syrup (if necessary)

    Instructions

    1

    Put all the ingredients in a saucepan and heat to medium-high heat. When it’s ready to boil, lower the heat and stir until all the ingredients are mixed and almost all the milk is absorbed.

    2

    Remove from heat and let it cool for 3-4 minutes. At this stage it will thicken more. If it thickens more than you want, add a bit more almond drink and stir.

    3

    Serve in a bowl, garnish with fresh fruits of your choice, and whatever you crave for. I put cacao nibs, bananas, blueberries, and some extra honey.
