Oh this recipe is a treat for all. Inspired by the green food and beverages of St. Patty's Day, we have created a terrific tasting green pancake and green smoothie to add smiles to your morning all week long. The best part about it is we do not use green artificial colors to have a good time.
Gluten Free Toppings And Add-ons
If spinach isn't your favorite food, that's okay. This green pancakes are made in a way that hides those flavors and sweetens them up just right. Spinach can be used in all sorts of recipes to add iron which many Celiacs and gluten-free / allergen free peeps need more of in their diets. Spinach is believed to also be great for heart health, acne and reduce heart burn.
We included both a gluten free pancake as well as a green smoothie beverage that are both simple and going to be delicious for breakfast. This recipe doesn't need any common allergens, either. Substitute any dairy out with plant based solutions to avoid accidents while celebrating :) We think you may stir up these recipes much more often than just for St. Pattys day once a year. Go try it :) If you enjoy these recipe let us know by rating them 5 stars and share with friends and family. Yum!
Gluten Free Green Pancakes & Smoothies
1-1/2 cups The Greater Knead Gluten Free Flour
2 cups Fresh Spinach
1 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Baking Soda
1/2 tsp Salt
1 tsp Sugar
1 cup Milk or Dairy Alternative
2 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 frozen bananas
2 heaping handful of spinach
1 apple chopped
1.5 cups whole fat yogurt, plant based non-dairy yogurt, or vanilla Ice cream
1.5 cups of dairy or plant based non-dairy milk.
Begin preheating a griddle to medium or medium-high heat.
Combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, sugar, and salt in a medium bowl.
Combine the wet ingredients in a high-speed blender jar. Add the spinach on top and blend on the highest speed until no spinach bits remain (30-45 seconds). Pour this green mixture into the mixing bowl with the dry ingredients. Whisk until no clumps remain. If you want to thin out the batter a bit, add 1-2 more tablespoons of milk and stir.
Ladle approximately ½ cup pancake batter onto hot griddle. Flip when bubbly and edges are slightly dry. Serve hot with some whipped cream, your favorite maple syrup, or other desired toppings.
Place all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth. Pour in two glasses and enjoy!
