Hey all!! Hows your day going today? I know mind got a little bit of a late start because I took the time to sleep in with little man after waking up with my husband and he went to work. Nehemiah has been having some rough grumbly nights lately. Hes not fussy, but he is making quite a bit of noise that keeps me up! 😀 I’m sure you mommas out there know exactly what I’m talking about!
And for those of you who don’t have children I’m still sure you know how it feels to just have a groggy day automatically reaching for that coffee cup, giving everyone that well known death stare of “Dont talk to me before I have my coffee.” :p
Anyways I wanted to have a little bit of flavor options when It comes to my new favorite breakfast recipe. I know I said in the other other post I drizzle a little bit of honey or agave nectar to add some added sweetness, but I am easily bored by the way my food tastes so I need some SERIOUS flavor options for my mood. I also wanted an option were I can have the sweetness paired with health benefits, so I came up with this flavor packed syrup/dressing that is also high in antioxidants and for you ladies/men who want a metabolism boost!!
I hope you enjoy it as much as me!!
Okie dokie… you are going to need that trusty blender of choice again. I will also note this again makes 1-2 servings (depending how much flavor your looking for). I also decided to try making bigger pancakes and was able to make 3 good sized ones, but being the air head I am I ended up burning all three. Although I will say that the extra crunchiness was actually pretty good!
- 1/2 cup blueberries or berries of choice (I used frozen blueberries from winco)
- 1 heaping tbsp agave nectar or raw organic honey
- 1 tsp cinnamon- (helps with inflammation, boosts metabolism, has antioxidants)
- 1/3 cup almond milk
At this time I took the blueberries and added them to a bowl to warm them up before blending all the ingredients together, because I don’t know about you but im not a fan of freezing cold syrup. I don’t feel like getting a brain freeze while chowing down on pancakes :D. I microwaved them for about 1-2 minutes (just enough to get them toasty and juices flowing).
Ok, so you have warmed up the blueberries right? Awesome! Poor them along with that juice in the bowl into a blender of choice and add all the other ingredients. Blend together for desired consistency. If you like it chunky only do it for a few seconds, if you like it runny leave it on longer and if you need to add a little more milk.
The result should look something like this:
I know, I know it doesn’t look that glamorous, but I PROMISE it is Scrum-Ditilly-Umptious… Now just poor over pancakes/waffles/crepes, or whatever else you desire and enjoy!!
I hope you like this as much as I did!!
