Does anything say warm weather better than a mango? This raw buckwheat pudding makes a delicious gluten-free breakfast and can be paired with all sorts of delicious toppings.

Despite its name buckwheat is safe for coeliacs and others on a gluten-free diet as it is actually related to rhubarb and not wheat.

Buckwheat is a nutritional powerhouse with a 100g serve providing 13g of protein. The same sized serve of white rice would provide just 2.6g. Each kernel is also packed with vitamins B1 and B2, as well as potassium, iron and magnesium.
