Double Blue Blueberry Pancakes

This magical pancakes are made with blueberry juice and blueberries. I love making colorful food. Blueberries always go between purple, indigo and blue colors. Blueberry ice creams turned out in a beautiful purple color (my favorite!) but when mixed with whole wheat flour they runed into a rare blue color. I topped these high in antioxidant pancakes with cornstarch that was quickly prepared with vanilla essence. Then, I grilled some slices of a banana, add fresh strawberries, blueberries and a bit of almond butter. I added to the mixture chopped pecans and more blueberries. These pancakes are a bomb! They make an excellent course for kids because it will call their attention.

For the cornstarch: While the pancakes are cooking, prepare the cornstarch in a small casserole. First, mix the cornstarch with the almond milk and vanilla essence until dissolved in the small casserole. Turn on the stove top in low heat and carefully, stir until creamy. Now, you can turn off the stove and pour the cornstarch on top of the pancakes or do it as a frosting.
