non dairy raspberry yoghurt 500

By Hiba Giacoletto, Healthwise

Something I hear often is how 'healthy' people think fruit yoghurt is. Sorry to burst your bubble but have you actually read the label on a fruit yoghurt? At best, it is loaded with sugar - at worst, lots of yucky stuff.

It is time for a really simple, delicious alternative that is free of sugar, dairy, soy and gluten!

This breakfast or snack is creamy thanks to the soaked, uncooked buckwheat and hemp seeds. It’s sweet thanks to the raspberries and dried figs. And it has that little bit of tartness thanks to the lemon.

Once you have soaked everything in the evening, it takes only 5 minutes to blend everything in the morning and can keep for up to two days in the fridge.

And because of the mix of healthy fats, protein and fiber, it is filling enough to be a meal in itself.


INGREDIENTS:
1 cup uncooked, shelled buckwheat, soaked overnight

4 dried figs

300 grams raspberries (frozen or fresh)

4 tbsp hemp seeds/hearts (shelled/hulled) or cashew nuts

juice of 1 lemon or a whole 1/2 organic lemon if your blender can handle it

1/2 – 2/3 cup water depending on how liquid you like it

A small handful of fresh herbs like mint, lemon verbena or basil (optional, but adds a nice taste)

METHOD

Wash and soak the buckwheat overnight with the dried figs.

The next morning, rinse the buckwheat and figs and wash well before putting them in a blender or food processor with the rest of the ingredients.

You can add some fresh herbs if you would like a little more taste.

If you want a more chunky texture, don’t blend all of the raspberries – leave about 1/3 aside and just pulse once in the end.

For the lemon, you can either use the juice or if your blender can handle it, wash an organic lemon well and put half of it whole in the mix. Most of the vitamins are in the skin and it adds even more taste this way!

This makes about 4 servings – you can store leftovers in air-tight jars/containers in the fridge so it is ready for the next morning.
