I’ve discovered an actual scientific fact.
If you do Body Pump between 10 and 11am one morning, your muscles only get stiff between 6 and 9am the next day.
I know because when I woke up at 6am today and staggered downstairs (TMI but my bathroom’s downstairs and I needed to go to it!) I realised, in my half-asleep state, that my legs didn’t hurt at all.
When I got up three hours later, that wasn’t the case. Ow.
It’s so worth it though. I went again yesterday and I LOVE it! Apart from the killer lunges, maybe 🙂
But on to today, and the post title… If you’ve got the Lilt Ladies in your head now, I’m sorry.
But the combination of mango and coconut means I had to use it 🙂
Although I’ve been unable to tear myself away from fruit/yoghurt/granola for weekday breakfasts lately, when it comes to weekends, I’ve been on a bit of a pancake roll. See what I did there?!
Mango/coconut pancakes? With raspberry/coconut sauce??
Please, if that’s all right 🙂
Obligatory process-of-cooking picture:
3tbsp dessicated coconut, ground finer in a mill or food processor
80g mango, blended in a food processor till smooth
2tbsp egg white
1/4tsp baking powder
Splash of water
Sprinkle of sugar
About 1/2 tsp cornflour, dissolved in 1tsp water
1tsp coconut butter
Mix all the pancake ingredients together and cook on a well-sprayed skillet or pan, over a low heat, till browned on each side.
Meanwhile, heat the raspberries, water and sugar together over a very low heat, stirring to break up the raspberries. Once they’ve all broken up, add the cornflour mixture and keep stirring till it thickens.
Take off the heat and – this is the best bit – add the coconut butter and mix, then gloop it over the pancakes.
I don’t like to blow my own trumpet but mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm 🙂
If you don’t want the sauce thick, don’t add the cornflour but I loved it because it was sludgy and lovely.
Very, very nice.
The rest of the day, cycling, visit to Tesco, riding Dave, out for dinner at my friend’s later… pales into significance 🙂
What’s your favourite type of pancake?
Hope you’re having a great weekend – and don’t forget about my giveaway!
