Happy weekend! 🙂
Well, I’m happy to report that our pool is finally coming along (yay!). This might actually be the latest we’ve ever opened it, but I’m just glad it doesn’t look like tea water anymore.
I just loooooove these pancakes. They’re just so… island-y. Like, you get a bite with a pineapple chunk in it and… BOOM. Like a little bite of refreshment. And the cream of coconut really does a nice job with flavor delivery, if I do say so myself.
Something you should know before making these: The cream of coconut I’m talking about may not be the one you’re thinking of. We’re not talking about the white, thick stuff you find at the top of a can of good-quality coconut milk. Cream of coconut is a syrupy, coconuty liquid that also comes in cans but is entirely different. I know the Coco Lopez brand says “coconut cream” but it’s the same as the Goya that says “cream of coconut.” If you can’t find either of those brands, try to find one that has a recipe for pina colada on it and you should probably be ok 😉
Another thing that makes these pancakes awesome? Zucchini, of course! In this recipe, the zucchini can’t be seen by the untrained eye. I thought this recipe would be another pseudo looks-like-coconut-but-it’s-actually-zucchini recipes like my candy bar recipe, but turns out… completely invisible. I love it, though. Just another way to get veggies in your life! 😀

Hey, I just realized tomorrow is the first day of Summer, too! Happy Summer! 😀
P.S. I’m going to shoot this recipe over to the Plant-Based Linkup Party at UrbanNaturale. Why don’t you check it out? 🙂
