Ingredients for 1 cup

4 tablespoons of  Saracenotto Molino Marello

1 liter of water to taste

Half a bio lemon

10-15 cherries


Toast the seeds in a pan over low heat. Within a few minutes, buckwheat grains will be perfectly shutted.

You can prepare them in quantity and keep them in a jar, otherwise use the necessary quantity immediately. Boil a liter of water, add the beans and leave to infuse about 10 minutes. Filter with a passine. Pour into a carafe, a bottle or a container. Add the lemon to slices and the pitted cherries.

In summer there is the need to hydrate and above all to do it in an intelligent and healthy way. Therefore, no sugary and carbonated drinks, prefer flavored waters with fruit, vegetables and aromatic herbs. They can be made with simple water or starting from an infusion or green tea.

Sobacha is a typical Japanese drink that is known in Italy as an infusion of buckwheat. It is a very beneficial drink ideal both in winter to take advantage of the buckwheat warming properties, but also in summer.

In fact, the buckwheat contains antioxidants beneficial for circulation and this infusion therefore becomes ideal for supporting the circle exhausted by the heat. I also remember that this pseudo cereal is very energizing and purifying, rich in iron, magnesium and potassium. This drink therefore turns out to be useful for purifying and flaming, to counteract stomach acidity and give relief in general.

The union with cherries is not accidental, since this fruit with the heat is our ally given the significant potassium content and the ability to contrast edemas and lymphatic stasis.

The flavor of the cherry sobaccha is very pleasant. The hazelnut taste of the toasted buckwheat, the acidic and fresh lemon note of the lemon together with the slightly sweet taste of cherries, is perceived.

Take it away with you to work and consume it throughout the day.

A new and original way to use buckwheat grains!
