Pinkalicious Pancakes

Pinkalicious Pancakes

If you have girls then you probably know who Pinkalicious is.  If you don’t then your girls are either too old or too young.  My oldest daughter who is 5 years old LOVES Pinkalicious.  We have most of her books and the ones we don’t have we can usually check out at the library (which we have to go do about once a week.)  To be honest I really like the books, she always has a lesson to learn and has fun while learning the lesson.  Oh and she has the best food, pink lemonade, pink cupcakes, and well pink pancakes.

The other night we were reading one of the books and there were pink pancakes in it, and you know my daughter had to ask for some.  So I thought this is great I will make them using Strawberries and get her to eat something healthy… a great plan right?  WRONG, she totally tasted the strawberries which she does not like and well they did not come out very pink.  My youngest daughter and I both loved them but I knew I would have to make another batch for my oldest since she did not like these.

So the next morning it was back to the kitchen and this time around I just added some red food color to the batter and that seemed to work perfect.  The pancakes came out a very pretty pink color and my daughter loved them.  I did not get to hide anything healthy in them but well I tried.

Supplies

Pancake Mix (and anything it calls for, like eggs, water, or milk).
Strawberries
Food Color

Directions

Make your pancake mix according to directions
 If adding strawberries puree them in a blender first then add to pancake mix (Note: you will need more pancake mix since the strawberries will make it runny if you don’t)
 If not adding the strawberries (or if you are and want your batter pinker) add some red food color till you get the pink color you want.
 Now make your pancakes as usual
Then eat and enjoy your Pinkalicious breakfast.

    These have to be good. I often make the muffins in the fall using strawberry cake mix and 100% canned pumpkin. My grands love them! Thanks for sharing this idea. Helen (from Katie’s blog hop)
