WARM NUTMEG & VANILLA BUCKWHEAT PUDDING

July, 2017 // recipes

The evening is a time to wind down, mentally and physically, from the day. We love this delicious pudding because it is light and soothing, and designed to promote a calm and restful sleep while delivering skin and belly benefits.

In the recipe, we've included our SLEEP Inner Beauty Powder, a delicious bio-fermented turmeric and spice blend for beauty and well-being, with passionflower and lemon balm, traditionally used in western herbal medicine to promote a calm and restful sleep.

High-fibre buckwheat is an excellent source of collagen-building manganese and copper and helps improve digestion. Tasty goji berries are a rich source of flavonoids that help maintain a healthy glow as well as polysaccharides that firm and tighten the skin and increase hydration.

What can we say but … sweet dreams.
