Buckwheat is a great source of complete plant-based protein with one cup uncooked containing 19 grams! So including buckwheat into your meals is a great idea, especially if you’re vegetarian or vegan and trying to bump up your protein intake. Buckwheat is also high in fiber and essential minerals such as manganese, magnesium, zinc, copper, and phosphorus. Plus it adds an irresistibly smooth and creamy texture to smoothies when soaked and blended. Serve this Nutella Buckwheat Smoothie With Warm Blackberry Sauce by Mitra Shirmohammadi for a luscious breakfast to keep you cozy on a gloomy day. It’s absolutely delicious!

Pineapple, banana, protein powder, ice, and coconut chia pudding. That’s all you need! Make a big batch of chia pudding at the beginning of the week and keep it in your fridge for an easy breakfast, snack, or recipes like this one. Add a slice of pineapple to the glass and start your day right with a delicious and nutritious Pina Colada Protein Smoothie by Kennedy Kitchings.
