Almond, Banana and Passionfruit Pancakes

Super Easy & Healthy Pancake Recipes

Mango and passionfruit is a wonderful combination when used as a pancake topping and the natural sweetness is a perfect alternative to syrups. Mango’s are excellent for energy and vitality as well as promoting healthy skin. They’re loaded with Vitamin A and offer up a high dose of Vitamin C as well as some vital B Complex vitamins such as B1,B2 and B3. To check your mango is ripe, it should give slightly when squeezed. Peel and slice the flesh away from the stone before adding to your blender.

By now you’ve probably established I’m a huge fan of adding banana to anything and the reason for this is they’re excellent for aiding digestion. They’re rich in potassium and give our body a real boost, especially in the morning.

Coconut really is the fruit that just keeps on giving and they’re amazing throughout pregnancy too.⠀⠀

I blooming love coconut oil, I not only put it on my hair for a lush natural hair treatment once a week but I also keep a jar in the cupboard to add to most of my sweet treats and smoothies too. Coconut oil has an abundance of anti bacterial properties which helps fights colds and flu and there is also talk it can ease constipation. If you are to use as a form of laxative to get things moving you could try adding 1/2tsp in to a liquid such as a smoothie. ⠀⠀
I’ve also heard that it’s great for rubbing on your belly too, although I’m not one for thinking there’s a magic cream to stop stretch marks but it’ll definitely make your skin feel good. ⠀⠀


Everyone has been raving about coconut water and coconut milk over the past couple of years and for good reason too. Coconut water contains some of richest sources of electrolytes and is ideal for keeping you well hydrated. It’s also packed full of protein, dietary fibre magnesium and potassium. ⠀⠀
