  1. Pour boiling water on buckwheat groats and let them soak for about 15 minutes.
  2. While the buckwheat is soaking, add all the ingredients for the chia pudding to a Mason jar. Close the jar and shake energetically for about 30 seconds. Let it rest 5-10 minutes, shaking every now and then to make sure the chia seeds don't stick together and absorb all the liquid.
  3. Rinse the buckwheat. Transfer to a blender with the plant milk, bananas, hemp, tahini and vanilla. Taste and add sweetener. Add the colouring powders (butterfly pea and pitaha) and blend again. Reserve.
  4. In a glass, alternately pour the buckwheat cream and chia pudding. Top with a generous helping of vegan whipped cream.
  5. In a small bowl, mix a bit of cane sugar and spirulina powder. Sprinkle on top of the whipped cream. Enjoy!
