Today I am giving you a healthy version of a Jaffa - you remember the orange coated chocolates?! - in pudding form. Holy yum - this is definitely a win-win. Delicious and nutritious breakfast or dessert that is a raw vegan buckwheat pudding with an orange chocolate twist. Not only is it super tasty but there is also a low-sugar version and this pudding is naturally gluten-free as buckwheat is a faux grain - it's actually a fruit seed that is related to rhubarb and sorrel.
I mean, what else would you expect from the seed bearing fruit blog, but seeeeeds???!
