Method

  • Step 1

    First make the base: Drain the buckwheat and add to your Ninja Kitchen Nutri Ninja blender with the other ingredients. Pulse well so the mixture comes together. Press this into a lined tin or tub (I used 20cm x 10cm). Place in the fridge while you make the other layers

  • Step 2

    Next add all of the pumpkin layer ingredients to your Ninja Kitchen blender and whizz up until quite thick and smooth. Spread this over the base and place in the freezer for 30 minutes

  • Step 3

    Gently melt the coconut oil and chocolate and pour this all over the pumpkin layer. Chill in the fridge for at least 1 hour – then you’re ready to pop out of the tin/tub, cut into slices or bites with a sharp knife, and enjoy!
