Blueberry Basil Smoothie

I picked up basil from the grocery store the other week and they only had the basil plant. I decided to pot it in an old, glass peanut butter jar, thinking that it wouldn’t last long in my windowsill. I have tried to grow basil plants multiple times in my windowsill, but every time have been unsuccessful. Maybe because it’s quarantine and I’m home and my basil plant is getting the TLC it needs, but it is thriving in my windowsill! Now, I’m going to have to think about re-potting it in an actual pot..

My new basil plant as well as the warmer weather inspired me to make this Blueberry Basil smoothie. This recipe is gluten free, vegan, paleo, and whole 30. It only requires 4 ingredients to make!

5 Ingredient Pancake Batter

Fact: you do not need pancake batter to make your own pancakes.

I have been making my own pancake batter a lot lately and have been seriously loving it. I love making pancakes with ingredients that I already have in my pantry. I have also learned to mix them in a way so they are nutritious and fiber rich, but still taste delicious!

Its no secret that I love oatmeal. It is a staple in my breakfast rotation and I also regularly make pancakes using oat flour. HOWEVER, you do not need oat flour to make pancakes. You can make your own. This is easy and cost efficient. In order to make pancake batter, I have been blending gluten free oats with chia seeds, fruit, and almond milk and adding a tsp of baking soda. Each of these ingredients are critical.
