How to make Buckwheat, Blueberry, Cashew Smoothie with Chia Seeds
Buckwheat, Blueberry, Cashew Smoothie with Chia Seeds, is a good choice when you don't want to have huge breakfast, but you still desire something well-balanced, filling and healthy.

Blueberry, Buckwheat smoothie
I have always believed that just because a drink is labelled smoothie, does not mean it is good for you. Smoothies made out of only fruits or fruit juices can spike your sugar levels which can give a burst of energy but leave you tired and sluggish afterwards. We love our smoothie packed with fibre, protein and good fats as protein and fat slow the absorption of glucose (sugar) into the bloodstream.

A couple of years back, we tried raw buckwheat and mango smoothie, I read family members mind and never made raw buckwheat smoothie again, well I wasn't disheartened as much because, after a week Buckwheat, Banana, Cashew and Cinnamon Smoothie was approved, because I used dry roasted buckwheat flakes in this smoothie. So got inspired by this recipe, I prepared today's smoothie where I have used cooked buckwheat, cashew butter, blueberries, and to sweeten the smoothie I've used banana and to pump up the protein included soaked chia seeds.
Chia is a very healthy fat containing 50% omega 3 fatty acids and 20% protein. All juices and smoothies contain a certain amount of sugar from fruits which are used to make juice or smoothie. By adding chia you can slow down the metabolism of any of these sugars thus preventing an insulin spike in your blood. Also by adding chia, you will turn this short burst of energy into a slow burning fuel, which provides you energy all day long!



So hey guys, take out your buckwheat and chia! Let's look at the recipe.

Notes :-
You can substitute non-dairy products to make a complete vegan smoothie.
Instead of cashew nuts use any other nuts.

  3. My Mum is Russian so I grew up with buckwheat being on the menu almost every morning. We always had and sometimes still have buckwheat porridge for breakfast. I have never tried adding buckwheat to drinks though but It's something I will definitely try.
