Pancake Day, Pancake Tuesday, Shrove Tuesday…
…is the day in February or March each year, that precedes Ash Wednesday, the beginning of Lent and the Easter season. The tradition began as a way of indulging before giving up something for Lent. So to help you celebrate we have some healthy ways to top pancakes.
- Strawberry Chia Seed Jam
- Pure Maple Syrup
- Banana Slices
- Nut Butters (like those from NowFoods)
- Non-dairy Yogurt
- Non-dairy Whipped Coconut Milk (Place two cans of unsweetened coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight. The next day, open the can and remove the solid portion into a chilled bowl. Discard the watery portion. Add a bit of stevia or monk fruit sweetener to the bowl and using a mixer, whip the coconut milk until soft peaks form. Scoop a dollop onto your pancakes.)
- Homemade Blueberry Syrup (see recipe below).

Bring the water to a boil. Add the tea bags and allow to steep for 5 minutes. Let the tea reduce down a bit while still boiling. Reduce the heat and add in the sugar and lemon juice stirring until all of the sugar dissolves. Pour over pancakes while still warm. Enjoy.
