Who likes fruit pancakes!? Rainbow pancakes, Dyed COMPLETELY with food ingredients – NO dye!

This colorful tower of pancakes are dyed and flavored with simple food ingredients such as blackberries, blueberries, carrots, and strawberries. The pancakes are further made healthier using honey instead of sugar. You’re body still reacts to honey like it does sugar, but honey is more whole and nutritious. I also used the minimum amount required to make these pancakes extremely tasty! Beautiful to the eye and delicious to all the senses – try these pancakes out for your next special breakfast. Your kids will be happy you did!

Here is the vegan pancake recipe I followed with amendments. I followed this recipe with the changes and replacements noted below. I also reiterated the recipe in the recipe card below.


  • I halved the recipe for each color
  • Used a quality unbleached all-purpose flour (didn’t want to muddy the color with wheat)
  • Used honey instead of date sweetener (either works though)
  • I replaced milk in the recipe with the following:

            RED is puréed 12oz strawberries & 1/2tsp @lovebeets beet powder

            ORANGE is 1 cup Orange  juice & 2 Carrots puréed

            YELLOW is 1 cup Pineapple  juice and 1/2 tsp Turmeric

            GREEN is 1/4 cup Lime juice, 3/4 cup almond milk, & 1 1/2tsp Matcha powder 

            BLUE is 12oz Blueberries  puréed & 1/2 cup almond milk

            PURPLE is 6oz Blackberries puréed & 3/4 cup almond milk

Honey Nutrition

Raw honey is the most natural sweetener possible, known to humans for thousands of years. It is used in traditional medicine, and has plenty of health benefits. Coming straight from a beehive, honey is a powerful antioxidant, containing healthful bee pollen and bee propolis. Raw honey also contains niacin, riboflavin, calcium, magnesium, manganese, phosphorus, zinc, and more.
