The lovely folks at Robinsons recently got in contact with us to ask if we’d be up for the challenge of creating some Robinsons Squash inspired pancakes this pancake day. Never one to turn down a challenge, especially one that involves pancakes, I said ‘Yes, please!’
First things first, we selected a range of fresh fruit from the supermarket including; lemons, mangoes, strawberries, kiwis and oranges (all of which are fruits that are used in Robinsons Squashes).
Robinsons Fruit Squash contains no added sugar, and a 250ml serving contains 5 calories or less.

Once we had our selection of fruits prepared and Robinsons squash ready to enjoy (pancake making is thirsty work) we set about making our tasty pancake creations.
This was the first year that Jasmine could really get stuck in with making the pancakes with us. She loved helping me weigh out our ingredients, prep the fruit and she quickly became Chief Whisker! We opted to make fluffy American-style pancakes using this recipe and they were THE best pancakes we’ve ever had.
Jasmine opted to load up her pancake with mango and strawberries.
Some of the strawberries never made it as far as the pancakes though! ;)

I enjoyed some Strawberry and Kiwi Robinsons squash – there’s real fruit in every drop!
Oh so delicious!
We were kindly sent some bottles of Robinsons Fruit Squash in 3 different flavours – so here’s our 3 squash inspired pancake toppings:
Stawberry and Kiwi
Lemon – you can’t beat a good ol’ traditional lemon pancake!
Orange and Mango
What do you think of them? Which flavour do you think you’d like best?
