Vegan mango and blueberry pancakes

 

Happy Fridays, cosy Sundays or stressful Mondays, any day is a good day for pancakes! This recipe is extremely nutritious and perfect for a filling breakfast that will give you lots of energy for the day.  It’s definitely one of my favourite recipes, and I always choose to make these pancakes if I want to impress someone with a great breakfast!

Especially now that the days are getting warmer I love to have a summery breakfast with lots of fruity flavours. You can whip these pancakes up within 10 minutes and if you add a little coconut yoghurt as a topping at the end you’ll have a tropical meal that will remind you of the island life!

 

Ingredients

Recipe for 20 medium pancakes

  • 2 bananas
  • 4 slices of mango
  • 1 cup of oats
  • 2 tablespoons of almond butter (or another nut better)
  • 3 cups of coconut milk
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • 1 tablespoon coconut yoghurt
  • 1 teaspoon Baobab powder (Click here to see what Baobab powder I use)
  • coconut oil (to grease your pan)

Method

  1. Place the mango, bananas, oats, Baobab powder, almond butter and coconut milk in a blender and mix until smooth.
  2. Simply pour the mixture into a bowl and stir in the blueberries.
  3. While you leave the mixture to rest for a minute heat up a frying pan and grease it with some some coconut oil
  4. Once the pan is very hot place about a tablespoon of mixture into the pan and fry for about 2 minutes on each side, until golden brown.  Make sure that you don’t flip them over too early, as you need to wait until each side is firm so they won’t break while flipping over.
  5. When they are done place them on your plate and top them of with some fresh blueberries and a tablespoon of coconut yoghurt.

 

Simple, healthy and so yum! Bon appétit!

The ultimate snack in Bangkok

 

When I visited Bangkok I found that I fell in love with all the street food at the street markets. So many colours, exotic fruit and dishes I had never even seen before were laid out for you to try. The streets are buzzing with excitement and a strong energy fills the air. But there is one thing that will always catch my eye as well as my nose as its sweet smell lingers me in.

‘Mango sticky rice’ is a dish made of sweet sticky rice topped with freshly cut mango and sweet coconut milk drizzled on top. When freshly made the sticky rice is still slightly warm and sticks to your spoon as you scoop it out. The fresh mango combined with the warm rice creates a delicious spoonful full of flavour and textures. Its my ultimate favourite snack that you can wake me up for anytime!

That reminds me, when in Bangkok I love to get some ‘mango sticky rice’ for breakfast. I mean whats a better way to wake up than with this delight!

 

 

Where to go

Bangkok is known for this delicious treat so its no wonder that you will find it in lots of places such as markets or even in supermarkets. However, I find that the best spots to get it freshly made is on street markets. There are lots of street markets scattered around Bangkok but some are more special than others. Wang Lang market and Pratunam market are both the best spots to have a wonder around and get overloaded by ‘mango sticky rice’ stands.

 

So there you go, the ultimate snack you will fall in love with in Bangkok! Enjoy!
