Green Smoothie Pancakes with Macerated Blueberries (gluten-free, paleo)

Green Smoothie Pancakes with Macerated Blueberries (gluten-free, paleo)

Now, they say you shouldn’t mess with a good thing. And my classic paleo pancake recipe is one of the most popular recipes on my website. But…you guys. You’re gonna LOVE these!

I love sneaking in greens and healthy veggies into recipes. I’ve done it with my Gluten-Free Zucchini Bread and it’s one of the reasons I love green smoothies so much. Because if done right, you really don’t taste the greens, but you do get a zap of extra nutrition.

Same goes for these green smoothie pancakes. One batch is loaded with two cups of spinach. Two cups! And believe me when I say, you really don’t taste it. Especially once you pile on some delicious macerated blueberries, that are drizzly sweet.

But the bonus in this green smoothie pancake recipe is that they’re completely gluten-free, grain-free, dairy-free, refined sugar-free and a 100% nutrient-dense breakfast. Does it get any better?

Oh yes it does! Here’s what I do with this pancake recipe. I make a double batch, cook the pancakes, then freeze the extras (in a single layer). Once frozen, I place three pancakes into a ziploc, with parchment paper in-between. It’s batch cooking at it’s finest!

Then, when next weekend rolls around there’s no dirty dishes for breakfast. All I have to do is pop the frozen pancakes in the toaster and my weekend brekkie is set. Green smoothie pancakes that are easy breazy.

Lisa’s Tips

When it comes to making evenly sized pancakes, I swear by my pancake pen. And it does help to flip the pancakes if they’re kept to about 3-inches in diameter.The high-powered blender I use for this recipe is my Vitamix 3500. It’s so versatile! Make sure to check out all the Vitamix Recipes I make with it.
