Heat pan on medium low heat.
Gently mix buttermilk and oil with mix, thinning with extra buttermilk as necessary (or seltzer water for a fluffier pancake).
Melt butter in pan or spray with cooking spray.
Ladle onto pan.
When the surface is bubbled, and the undersides are brown, about 1-2 minutes, flip.
Cook other side for 30 seconds.
Serve.

Raspberry Smoothie

Servings – 1 smoothie @ 8 ounces

3 oz yogurt $0.39
3/4 cup frozen raspberries $0.75*
1/2 banana $0.11

Total for recipe – $1.25 per serving

Put all ingredients in food processor. Blend until mixed.

*I buy them at Trader Joes or the WF generic brand. They’re significantly cheaper than Dole.  Strawberries are much cheaper and also full of anti-oxidant packed sweet berry goodness. They seem to have less seeds too.

Banana

Coffee
