Everything in stores is red and pink, the candy aisle is stock full of those heart shaped candy hearts, and kiddos are getting ready to hand out cards to their friends. Valentine's Day is here and I've got just the recipe you can make with your family and loved ones, or it's wonderful for a Galentine's Day brunch. It's easy to make and pretty clean, but with a few goodies snuck in. After all, it is Valentine's Day! I'm going to show you lovelies how to make heart shaped pancakes using heart shaped cookie cutters and my favorite Vital Proteins flavor, Vanilla Collagen.
I don't know about you guys but I love coming up with fun breakfast ideas, and pancakes are a staple in our house. Not only do I have this recipe for you guys, but I have some fun Valentine's Day date ideas too!
After you've eaten your heart out with these yummy pancakes, you can go enjoy a full day of Valentine's fun.
1.) Go see a $5.00 black and white film. The Stanford movie theater in Palo Alto features romantic old-school films like Casablanca and Love Story.
2.) Do a Paint and Wine night at Pinot's Pallete. Pinot's Pallet's are popping up all over the place and learning to paint a fun painting while drinking some wine and bubbly is a fun way to connect with your partner and create some fantastic art!
3.) Go hiking and explore the great outdoors in your local town. I know that when I've eaten a ton of pancakes the first thing I want to do it burn them off. Hiking with your sweetie-pie is free and a great way to connect in the fresh air, around beautiful scenery.
4.) Go Rock Climbing! It's me and Shane's 1-year anniversary with Rock Climbing as we went last year on Valentine's Day and we are completely obsessed with it and go at least three times a month now.
5.) Go explore some caves! Cave mining is a fun way to test your limits and learn all bout the historical caves in your area. We live near cave mines and we are planning on exploring them as it's something totally new to us.
Whatever you plan to do on Valentine's Day, do it with your loved ones. Or devote and an entire day to pampering you! Start your day off with my yummy, delicious, pancakes and then devote an entire day to face masks, a bubble bath, a skin coffee scrub, a yoga class, and watch some fun movies.
How To Make All Natural Red Whipped Cream:
Grab one beet and juice. Next add a cup of heavy whipping cream to your Kitchen Aid Mixer and whip on. Whip the beet juice and heavy whipping cream until it is nice and thick. Let stand in fridge for two hours before using for decoration or eating. You can add the all natural red whipping cream to a piping bag and decorate your pancakes with it!
