Butter and syrup have been the go-to pancake toppings for as far back as we can remember, but let’s face it, sometimes that can get boring. Take advantage of the spring season and all of the fresh fruits and veggies it has to offer and take your short stack to the next level! Try these spring-inspired pancake toppings today!
Cherries & Cream
Dark cherries make for a great tart addition and fresh whipped cream mellows it all out. You can even swap out the whipped cream for vanilla ice cream if you’re looking for an extra special treat.
Select berries that aren’t too ripe for a more jellied texture. Throw them in a pot and mix in water, lemon juice and sugar and place on the stove until you’ve reached a desired texture and flavor. Then slather it on top of your pancakes and enjoy!
Chevre & Spinach
Spring isn’t all about fruits, there are plenty of fresh veggies to go around! If you’re looking for a more savory alternative, try low fat goat’s milk cheese and baby spinach. You can eat them for breakfast, lunch or dinner.
Apples & Cinnamon
Fresh apples and a little spice go a very long way. Warm the apples after cutting them into slices and then sprinkle on some ground cinnamon. Top with just a touch of sugar and you’ll be coming back for seconds.
