Here you go!
New recipe #3 for March as promised. This time it is for pink paleo pancakes!!
How do I make the pancakes pink you ask?
Its not with artificial coloring either.
I ordered a variety of natural powders from a company called Raw Nice (link to Raw Nice) and have been experimenting in the kitchen with them. This time I used pink pitaya powder and thought I would add it to pancakes.
What is pitaya?
It is dragonfruit and packed with vitamin C and calcium.
The pink pitaya powder is a brilliant pink color and would be fun to add to smoothies, yogurt bowls and such.
This new pancake recipe is gluten free, dairyfree and grainfree.
