Mango Coconut Vegan Buttermilk Pancakes and A New Green Juice Recipe



I'm pretty routine when it comes to what I eat for breakfast. Most nights I will put a bowl of Bob's Red Mill Muesli in the fridge with almond milk to soak overnight and I add berries to it in the morning. 

I needed to cook something different this morning because I recently ran out of berries to put in my muesli, and I won't eat muesli without berries. I decided on cooking a vegan buttermilk pancake recipe and adding my own flavors to it.

I had mango that I needed to use up in my fridge and I love the combination of mango and coconut together. So, it was decided that mango coconut buttermilk pancakes it would be for my out of the routine breakfast.

I also made one of my favorite green juice recipes that I will share along with the pancake recipe.
