Got Milk?

Monday, 8 February 2016

Pancake day will be upon us tomorrow! Yay! I love pancake day, but none of that "english" pancake rubbish. Those are crepes. I love good ol' fluffy American style pancakes

I am going to share with you my recipe for some fluffy American style pancakes, but with a healthy twist thanks to Arla's BOB milk

So what gives these pancakes a healthy twist? Well, the Arla 'Best of Both' milk I will be using is a healthy lifestyle game changer in that it is a fat-free milk that tastes as good as semi-skimmed milk. It is fat free, pasteurised, filtered and enriched with protein

I don't really drink milk, or have any kind of diary, but I am partial to the odd milkshake. I don't have to feel so bad about my Peanut Butter milkshakes being so bad for me. I have 0% fat thanks to Arla, and thanks to Peanut Hottie they are also low in calorie with no added sugar. But yanno, sometimes I have to add in a cheeky scoop of ice cream for real decadence...
I could also add in protein powder if I wanted to feel super good and healthy

But I digress, the crux of the matter is pancakes

Like I said, I don't really eat or drink dairy, but I started to think about what I do like that maybe has milk in as an ingredient. It hit me that pancake day is coming up, and pancakes need milk as part of the batter! So I want to show you all how easy it is to make thick and fluffy pancakes and that with Arla, whilst the recipe has sugar in, you can make them low fat and full of protein! Note, you CAN add protein powder to the mixture if you want for added extra protein pancakes

You will need:
  • 135g plain flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • half a teaspoon of salt
  • 2 tbsp caster sugar
  • 130ml milk
  • 1 large egg
  • 2tbsp melted butter or oil
First step is you need to sift the flour, baking powder, salt and caster sugar into a large bowl

In a separate bowl, lightly whisk the egg and milk together and then you can whisk in your melted butter or oil. I will be using vegetable oil rather than butter

Pour the milk mixture into the flour mixture and beat it all together with a fork until you have a smooth batter. Let the batter stand for a few minutes

Heat a frying pan over a medium heat with some oil or butter. Once heated, add a ladle of batter and wait until the mixture starts to bubble on the top. Once it is bubbling, turn it over and cook until both sides are golden brown

Repeat until all the batter is used up and you have a STACK of pancakes

I like to serve mine with maple syrup and bacon, but for the sake of being healthy I have served up with some fruit and just a smidge of peanut butter

Arla BOB milk is available from all supermarkets and is only £1.50 for 2L!!

Will you be looking out for Arla BOB milk? Are you looking forward to having pancakes?

A voucher was given so I could buy some Arla BOB. All thoughts are my own


  1. I love pancakes but I have to admit to buying ready-made - otherwise my children argue about who gets theirs first!!
