Recently, I have been making the pancake batter in the blender, and throwing in a (big) handful of spinach for nutritional value. it blends in completely (in a Vitamix), and doesn't change the taste of the pancakes, and they're certainly green!

Don't put both red and green coloring in the same bowl of batter!
