Smoothies are a huge part of many people’s everyday lives. They want to be able to blend all of the fruits, veggies, greens and ice without leaving chunks, so it’s no wonder they buy a Blendtec blender to help them accomplish this. But did you know that Blendtec blenders can also make many other delicious things? Pancake batter is one of them!

I love pancakes. They are probably one of my favorite breakfast foods. They’re such a simple, quick food to make, and you can create so many flavors. Try chocolate chip, blueberry, craisin, and some less traditional ones like those below.

It’s pretty simple to make pancake batter–just put the ingredients in the blender in a certain order and press the right buttons to get the perfect blend.

Here are a few recipes to get you started.
