A fun twist on pancakes: These Blueberry Coconut Pancakes are made with coconut milk and topped with coconut whipped cream!
Fresh berries seem to be all the rage right now. Many of them are in season right now. In Florida, our Strawberries are in season in February but even now, you can sometimes get a good package of California strawberries. You may have to dig around, or pay an arm and a leg for the organic strawberries, but you can still find good strawberries during July in Florida.
But enough about strawberries. Today we are talking about blueberries. Fresh blueberry pancakes made with coconut milk. Ah yes, they are pretty amazing. I topped these with syrup and coconut whipped cream. As you can see, the whipped cream sorta melted. But it actually looks really cool drizzling down the slope of pancakes, doesn’t it?
To make this recipe, I used my basic pancake recipe. I just subbed the milk with coconut milk. And I added a whole bunch of delicious, fresh blueberries to the pancake batter. It was oh so delicious.
What are your favorite items to add to pancake batter?
Whew, it has been one busy week. With school, work and blogging and more blogging (did I mention blogging?) I’ve been one busy gal, once again. Did I tell you I was going to Atlanta next month? I’m going there for 3 days for training for work. I’m not looking forward to flying but I am looking forward to checking out the Atlanta area. We’ve been talking about the idea of moving out of state sometime after I graduate next year. Ken got CCNP certified last month, which puts him in line for some great job opportunities. Right now it’s just talk. You know how people love to talk about the future and what dreams and goals they have, right? If we moved though, I’d definitely miss the beaches. I grew up 45 minutes from the beach and now I live only 10 minutes from the beach. Needless to say, but I will, I love the beach.
