Delicious Beet And Ginger Juice

Delicious Beet And Ginger Juice. Hey everyone. It’s holiday time! And I am so ready to celebrate the reason for the season with my family and friends. Today I wanted to share this juice recipe that will be the perfect go-to for those busy mornings. And with last minutes gifts to buy, holiday parties to attend and family coming into town it couldn’t come at a better time. Juicing is a great way to pack in your fruits and vegetables. And beets add not only color and flavor but are high in antioxidants and a great anti-inflammatory. I combined it with sweet apples, carrots, and ginger. Chock full of goodness! I hope that you enjoy this easy to make refreshingly earthy and sweet juice.

Enjoy!

Quick And Easy Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

 

Quick And Easy Pumpkin Spice Pancakes

2 1/2 cups pancake mix (I use Krusteaz)
1/2 cup pumpkin puree (You can use two tablespoons if you want a very mild pumpkin taste.)
One teaspoon pure vanilla
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie mix (Recipe below)
Plenty of butter and maple syrup, for serving.

In a large bowl add pancake mix and pumpkin spices. Mix well. Now follow the directions for the pancake mix. Once your pancake batter has been mixed, add vanilla, pumpkin puree and lightly stir until incorporated.

Heat a large skillet or griddle over medium-high heat. Lightly oil and pour pancake batter using a 1/4 measuring cup onto skillet. Let bubbles start to form before flipping and cook until a light golden brown. Remove from heat and repeat with the next batch.

Serve with butter and maple syrup if desired. Yum!

Pumpkin pie spice:

Two teaspoons ground cinnamon
One teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
