buckwheat, smoothie bowl, peanut butter, recipe

This buckwheat smoothie bowl is a perfect breakfast or brunch, that is so filling, satisfying, and delicious! It is a variation for the buckwheat breakfast bowl that I have made, but it is easier to make because it doesn’t require any cooking.

I love to enjoy this buckwheat smoothie bowl, especially during summer, because it is refreshing, and keeps me full until lunchtime.

Also, it is nice that no special ingredients are required (I mean, who doesn’t have bananas and peanut butter at home?!), and that you can add other fruits that you have at home.

What do you need to know about buckwheat?

If you want to know more about buckwheat groats, types of buckwheat, how to cook it, sprout, and soak it, check out this blog post.

But in short, buckwheat groats are very good for you, especially raw ones. All you need to do to boost the nutrients and taste is to soak them overnight or for at least 6 hours before serving them.

Also, you can use sprouted buckwheat groats in the smoothie, instead of just soaked buckwheat. After soaking them, place the rinsed and drained buckwheat on a sieve or in a bowl and leave for about 24 hours, rinsing and draining them at the halfway point (after 10-12 hours). They will start to sprout quickly, that is when you can already use them for your smoothie bowl! Make sure not to leave them to sprout for longer than 24 hours. There is an option to freeze them so they will stop that process, or you can dehydrate them. Again, more about this in the blog post mentioned above.

Ingredients for the peanut butter buckwheat smoothie bowl

  • Raw buckwheat groats. If your buckwheat groats are toasted (they have a dark brown color), then do not use them for this recipe because they taste totally different. Make sure to buy raw buckwheat groats, like these ones.
  • Banana. Both frozen and fresh bananas will work great for this recipe. The riper the banana is, the sweeter the smoothie bowl will be.
  • Peanut butter. It gives such a lovely nutty taste. If the quantity that I added is not enough for you, add more peanut butter! Or you can easily substitute the peanut butter for another nut or seed butter of your choice.
  • Plant-based milk. I used oat milk for this recipe, but of course, other kinds of milk will work great!
  • Juicy, soft dates. For me, one date is enough, but add more if you wish. You can also substitute the dates for a liquid sweetener or just omit this ingredient.
