Blueberry Buckwheat Parfait

Blueberry Buckwheat Parfait

Makes 2 parfaits

INGREDIENTS:

  •  * 3/4 cup buckwheat (soaked overnight in water, rinsed and drained)
  •  * 1/2 cup cashews (soaked overnight in water, rinsed and drained)
  •  * 2 frozen bananas
  •  * 1 tsp vanilla extract
  •  * 1/2 cup coconut milk
  •  * 1 cup blueberries
  •  * 1/2 cup black currants
  •  * 1 tsp acai powder (optional)
  •  * Extra berries and mint for decorating (I used leftover brownie crumble too)

 

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1.  1.) Rinse your soaked buckwheat well, until the water runs clear and the sticky residue is removed. Rinse your cashews too.
  2.  2.) Add rinsed buckwheat, cashews, frozen bananas, vanilla extract and coconut milk to your blender and blend until smooth. You want it to be thick but pourable, so add a little water if you need to.
  3.  3.) Pour the mixture into your glasses until 3/4 full. To the remaining mix in the blender, add blueberries, black currants and acai powder and blend until smooth.
  4.  4.) Top up your jars with the purple mix and decorate with more berries, brownie crumble and mint.
