Get a fresh start to your day with these Mint Chocolate Chip Blender Pancakes! They’re sweet, filling + taste like the classic ice cream flavor! Vegan + GF
I know this isn’t an ice cream recipe, but lets talk about your favorite ice cream flavor. Now I know what you’re thinking, ” This girl is cray cray. Why is she bringing up ice cream right now?” Well the reason is because this recipe is based off my favorite ice cream flava🍦
How would you like to eat your favorite ice cream for breakfast? Yeah that kind of sounds like a bowl full of diabetes. But it doesn’t have to be a bowl full of diabetes, really. You see, I love mint chocolate chip ice cream, but if I eat it for breakfast, I can bet $100 that I wouldn’t feel energized after eating it. I’d probably get a little sugar rush, but then crash and fall back asleep.
When I eat breakfast, it has to be something that’s gonna fill me up and give me energy for the day ahead. You with me on that? I hope so😉
Butttt if something fills me up, gives me energy, has the taste of my favorite ice cream, and is easy to make, thats a whole other story😏.
I’m telling you, using real mint leaves in these pancakes makes ALL the difference. I was really curious when making the batter and so I licked the spoon. It literally tasted like melted mint chocolate chip ice cream. Literally. After that moment, I knew that I this was a winner. The only thing that bothered me was the color, or lack of color. It tasted like mint chocolate chip, but was the color of a regular pancake. I didn’t want these to look like any other pancake because they are soooo much more than that.
Insert a handful of spinach. Voila, problem solved. Don’t be scared by the veggies people. Once they are whirled and swirled in the blender, you won’t taste it. Pinky promise.
