Piña Colada Pancakes
Pancakes are always a big deal in our home. They are considered celebration food because they are served on weekend mornings for someone’s birthday, holiday or a special milestone has been reached.
Yogurt and buttermilk pancakes are extra fluffy and so delicious in comparison to the boxed stuff. They only take just a few minutes more to prepare and the results are worth the extra minutes in your kitchen.
These pancakes are so much fun to prepare because I used Cacique® Yogurt Smoothies. Cacique’s Yogurt Smoothies come in a variety of flavors, so your pancakes can be customized with your favorite smoothie flavor. From pecan to strawberry to mango, you choose the flavor and toppings for your special pancakes.
I was feeling tropical and in need of a vacation, so I decided to create a tropical paradise breakfast spread. To top my piña colada pancakes, I also made a creamy tropical sauce with Cacique® Crema Mexicana, pineapples and their juice, coconut and rum to drizzle over the fluffy pancakes. For the kid-friendly version, use rum extract and serve with a side of pineapple or mango juice.
