For the porridge:

  • 1 cup buckwheat groats not kasha
  • 1/4 cup chia seeds
  • 3 cups unsweetened coconut milk or any other nut milk like almond, rice, soy, etc.I used Silk Brand - not the canned kind
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Pinch of salt

For the Toppings: (all optional)

  • 1/2 cup walnuts or any other unsalted nuts of your choice
  • 1 1/2 cup berries pomegranate seeds, etc. (any fresh fruit you have at home)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened shredded coconut optional


  • Mix buckwheat groats, chia seeds, coconut milk, water, vanilla extract, cinnamon, and salt in a bowl. Cover it with stretch film and let it sit overnight in the fridge.
  • In the morning, place it in a pot, and cook, stirring occasionally, for10-12 minutes or until it reaches to your desired thickness.
  • Garnish it with fruit, coconut, and nuts. Serve.



Note: To keep it healthy, I didn't add extra sugars to this recipe. But if you like it sweeter, you can add one or two tablespoons of natural sweeteners like honey, agave nectar, or maple syrup.
