These colourful pancake stacks are a great way to get kids to enjoy some fruit alongside their pancakes
Pancake Tuesday is just around the corner and this year I’ve teamed up with Robinsons to show you a really simple but fun and fruity recipe to get the whole family into the kitchen and whipping up a storm!
The pancakes are really easy to make and use just a few basic ingredients. I decided to make American-style pancakes as they are smaller and easier for the kids to eat. I love the thin crepe-style pancakes myself but we sometimes find it frustrating only being able to cook one at a time! My kids are not the most patient so this recipe is perfect as you can cook 4 at a time in one pan!
These pancakes are a great way to show how fresh fruit can be a really fun and delicious part of a snack for kids. I’ve used some of the yummy fruits that are contained in Robinsons Squash like Orange, Apple, Lemon, Strawberry and Kiwi! Robinsons Squash contains real fruit in every drop and has no added sugar.
I often get asked for advice on how to encourage kids to drink more water, especially during the hot summer months. Adding a little squash to their water can be a great way to get kids drinking more and keeping them refreshed all day long.
Robinsons Squash contains just four calories per 250ml serving and comes in fourteen delicious fruity flavours.
We had so much fun making, cooking and flipping these pancakes! My daughter especially loved making the layers of fruit and pancakes and it even encouraged her to try some kiwi, a fruit that she always refused to eat!
