Basics of Raw/ Sweet

Spicy Green Smoothie Bowl

I haven´t found better way how to break fast. Either if it´s just directly after I wake up or after intermittent fasting, this smoothie bowl works wonders for me! And if I add my Hazelnutt Chocolate Buckwheat Granola, haleluuuuyaaaah, I´m in heaven! ;D But, maybe I´m the only one who goes this far with spiciness ;D. Cause there´s a proper mix of hot hot hot ingredients. So this one is for sure not for everyone, I´m pretty aware of that :D. So if you are not a fan of chilli, kurkuma&pepper in the smoothies (actually, who really is? :D) you can just drop that and leave it only with ginger, aaand that´s pretty safe I guess ;).

But why I actually incorporated more spices into my meals is, and now the girly talk, it´s supposed to boost your metabolism. And who doesn´t wanna boost their metabolism, right ;D. So especially after you are fasting and you are lowering down the pace of it, this comes pretty handy ;). So cheers and give it a try!

What I also love about this smoothie is it´s exotic taste. And that´s because of the combination of kardamon, kurkuma and ginger. So if you are into asian, indian cousine and spices, this could suit you :).

Decorations & Toppings/ Rawfood Cousine/ Superfoods & Sprouts/ Sweet

Hazelnutt Chocolate Buckwheat Granola

So! Hello! Let´s up this rawfood game together, shall we? Granola is usually made from oats, nuts, seeds and dried fruits. For me, granola is just something crunchy on my smoothie. I always loved to add plain dehydrated&sprouted buckwheat on top of my smoothie bowls. But for you I leveled this up a bit! 😉 Aaaaand it means hazelnutt&chocolate flavour!

This can be a new thing for those of you who never tried to sprout buckwheat. Or to those who actually never tried to sprout anything ;D. No worries, I got you. I will soon post an article for beginners with sprouting, for people who are kinda into the idea of trying a sprouting but totally haven´t a clue how to do it. It´s easy! And I will guide you through it.

With this recipe though, I will act like you already know how to generate your own buckwheat sprouts – so I would say it´s for more advanced rawfood enthusiasts! 🙂

 

Well, ok, little hint:

1. you soak buckwheat overnight,

2. after a soaking it for at least 6-8 hours you will drain it, put it into a sip where it can breathe and you will wash it tree times a day,

3. and tadaaaaa, after 2 days you will have a fresh home-selfgrown-sprouts!)

 

For it to be raw you also need a dehydrator. I´ve never tried raw vegan recipes in the oven or drying it under the Sun, but those people exist and they have succes with it :D. So again, no worries if you don´t own one, oven/Sun could be enough. Especially if you don´t care if it is gonna stay raw or not!

Again, this is what I like and I encourage you to do it your own creative way. If you don´t like hazelnutt-chocolate flavour, do your own thing, honey ;D. You can make it fruity, with nuts and seeds, levander, orange, whatever you can imagine ;). So let the buckwheat sprouts be the base and then you do whatever you like ;).
