Right - I usually have just a blended fruit smoothie for breakfast in the morning. I'm not a big breakfast eater but my Mr. always tries to encourage me to eat one. And I know breakfast is an important part of the day. So, I've been experimenting and as I always loved "Cream of Wheat" when I was a kid the following recipe appealed to me.
I had a package of buckwheat sitting in my cupboard for a long time just waiting to be used, so this was a good opportunity to try it. Being the recipe calls for raw buckwheat just soaked overnight it does not take a lot of work. And I know EXACTLY what's in my breakfast cereal this way. I did not add any sweetener at all other than 1/2 a banana and I also blended in the extra nut pulp left over from my next item - the almond nut milk I made. It turned out terrific!
I was researching on the internet and it also looks like buckwheat might be beneficial for a diabetic diet - might be worth checking out.
This is great - as you can see you can use any sort of nuts. I added a hint of vanilla to mine and it tastes wonderful. I used almonds and am looking forward to trying other nuts. I use my magic bullet for everything - its perfect with the cups you can store your "milk" in the fridge!
Here's some photos of my own:
