Blueberry Lemon Tart Pancakes

It’s Spring time which means lemon and blueberries are a must! So I bought this Rebbl drink and I’ve had the coffee one that they make and it is AMAZING so I was like I should give another one a try but to be honest I wasn’t a huge fan. Turmeric is great for you but the taste can be over powering at least for me. I didn’t want to throw it out (not cheap) and it is pretty much like milk so hey why not add it to pancakes? The flavor is Turmeric Lemon Tart and I added the blueberry flavor and it turned out perfect! These are gluten-free with no sugar added besides whats in Rebbl drink.
