Buckwheat Smoothie Bowl Recipe And Chocmeister Hazelnut Spread
I received the product at no cost as a part of Peanut Butter & Co’s Yum Squad. All opinions are mine alone.
Buckwheat Smoothie Bowl Recipe – made with bananas and Chocmeister hazelnut spread. Topped with fresh strawberries, blueberries, and kiwi. Perfect for breakfast or snack.
I have an obsession with smoothie bowls. They are so easy to make and just like some smoothies they could easily replace a whole meal. I usually use fresh/frozen fruits and seeds in my smoothie bowls and non-dairy milk.
Today’s recipe is a little different, because I used soaked buckwheat in it. I rarely cook with buckwheat, because even though I know it is one of “the world’s healthiest foods”, I’ve got mixed feelings about its taste. To learn more about buckwheat check this article out.
I’ve used buckwheat in savory dishes, I’ve tried buckwheat flour and soba noodles. But the way I’ve been preparing it recently is in a smoothie bowl.
The addition of bananas and chocolatey hazelnut spread in today’s recipe makes buckwheat taste amazing!
I received a sample of Peanut Butter & Co’s all new Chocmeister hazelnut spread. It comes in two delicious flavors (milk and dark chocolate) and I got to try the milk chocolate one. It has 25% less sugar and more protein than the leading brand of chocolate hazelnut spreads. Enjoy it on toast, bagels on fruit like bananas and strawberries or in cookies and brownies.
This thing tastes amazing! Love the intense chocolate flavor and creamy texture. It has been my favorite snack for the last couple of months.
The folks over at Peanut Butter & Co were nice enough to offer and give away a container of Chocmeister to one of my readers. Make sure you enter, the widget is at the end of the post. Good luck!
