Do you ever have a smoothie, sip it and say to yourself ‘You know… I actually want something warm… I actually want cake instead?!’ Well how about we turn smoothies into pancakes!!!
Breakfast is my favourite meal of the day as you can have it savoury or sweet and the options are limitless. I get really busy during the day so breakfast is the only guaranteed sit-down meal that I have. I often have smoothies and granola for breakfast but sometimes I want to treat myself to a little more and have cake…. pancakes of course :). Especially with the colder seasons approaching in Australia/New Zealand, it’s time to switch over to more comforting and warm breakfasts.
These pancakes are fluffy, wholesome and taste ‘fresh’ with the kiwi and mint from the Oob smoothie pack I used.
If the pancake batter tastes too ‘green’ for your liking, just add some mashed banana or sweetener.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I did!

Green smoothie pancakes
- 1 cup Oob Organic Smoothie Mix Supercharge
- 1 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1 1/2 cup plant-based milk, such as almond, soy or coconut, I used coconut milk
- Handful of baby spinach
- 2 tsp baking powder
- Defrost frozen smoothie mix.
- Add all ingredients to a blender and blend until as smooth as possible.
- Heat up a non-stick fry pan to medium heat.
- Pour pancake mix into 8 cm circles on fry pan. Wait until the edges become crispy or until you can slide a spatula underneath then flip.
- Pancakes are ready when they have puffed up a little. Remove and set aside in a warm place. Repeat with the rest of the batter if there is any.
- Serve pancakes with maple syrup, raspberry chia jam and a smoothie!
