A creamy avocado smoothie is a perfect refresher for either the beginning or middle of your day. It functions as a morning-pick me up or a post-workout drink. The mango and banana sweetens the smoothie a bit, while the taste of the almond-coconut milk matches the good fats from the avocado. I’ve been trying to manipulate avocados lately to find other ways to use them besides traditional guacamole, it’s amazing how many different ways you can use them! I hope you enjoy this version! (Make sure your avocado has ripened slightly, so you can taste all of that healthy fat!)
Brunch is definitely my favorite meal of the day, mostly because it involves having some type of comfort food! I had a little extra time to myself this past weekend since I don’t have any tests coming up, so I made a warm toasted flatbread in my dining hall.

A long brunch is the best way to get a Sunday started on the right track. It’s the last day of the weekend after all, might as well savor it!
Sometimes the best breakfasts are the ones that are light on your stomach and don’t leave you hanging in a food coma. One day I was rushing to class (*correction- everyday I’m running late to class) and I was trying to come up with a feasible and portable breakfast snack that gives me energy- not one that leaves me tired after I’ve finished eating. I craved something more than just a slice of plain bread covered in butter.
With this recipe, you can make two servings of the waffle stack from 1 full waffle (which means it’s perfect for sharing with your roomie :3). If you only want to make one waffle stack, use half the amount of each ingredient listed below. Since this recipe requires a little more time than grabbing the usual cereal for breakfast, this is a perfect treat for the weekend after a long week. 🙂 Continue Reading
