Strawberry & Raspberry Breakfast Smoothie.

100g buckwheat
1tbsp lemon juice
150g strawberries and raspberries
1/2 tbsp honey
1 banana
3 drops of vanilla essence with pods
pinch of cinnamon
pinch of all spice

This smoothie is lovely and thick, with a oaty taste, perfect for the morning.

Place the buckwheat in a cup and cover with water and the lemon juice. Leave it to sit over night then drain and set aside.

In a blender place your fruit and honey, then blend until smooth and pour into a cup. Do not clean the mixture out of the blender as this will give the smoothie its pink colour. Add the buckwheat, banana, vanilla, cinnamon and all spice and blend well until smooth.

Pour 1/3rd into a glass, then pour a little of the fruit blend, then the buckwheat blend again, do this in layers until full. Use a spoon to make swirl patterns if desired.
