This semester, my goal is to make more healthy breakfasts and to not just settle for cereal and almond milk. Not only do overnight oats have WAY more nutrients than most cereal, they are packed with protein to keep you full all day (perfect for a long day of classes)! Here I’ll be giving yall one of my favorite overnight oat recipes These overnight oats are rich, creamy, and filled with fresh fruit. It’s truly like eating dessert for breakfast! And, better yet, there’s no prep time! Just mix them up the night before (this takes 5 minutes) and store them in easy grab-n-go airtight containers for easy breakfasts throughout the week. You can eat these cold & straight from the jar, or heat them up for a nice warm breakfast. Enjoy!

With spring on the way, fresh food has been sounding so good. I wanted to share with you my absolute favorite smoothie recipe. This smoothie has about 12 grams of protein and is under 300 calories! For all of you who don’t like kale: I promise you can hardly taste it, and kale adds such great nutrients! This smoothie takes only 5 minutes and is a perfect on-the-go breakfast. Smoothies are really hit-or-miss for me; sometimes I like them, sometimes I don’t. Despite that, this smoothie never disappoints! I hope yall love it as much as I do.

Hey yall! It’s national hot cocoa day, so I decided to share a healthy(-ish) alternative to the traditional hot chocolate. This is my favorite hot chocolate recipe, because it uses almond milk but is still super tasty. This recipe makes about 5 servings! I also included a single-serving recipe for those days you just want a little something sweet.
Almond Milk Hot Chocolate
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 4 cups Almond milk (1 qt.) (I like the sweetened vanilla kind, but you can also use original)
- 1/3 cup hot water
- 1/2 cup sugar
- Dash Himalayan pink salt & nutmeg or cinnamon (you can use regular salt, this stuff is just better in my opinion)
- 1/4 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
Mix sugar, cocoa, and salt in medium saucepan & stir in water. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 2 minutes. Add milk & stir until hot. Remove from heat & add vanilla. Beat with a whisk until foamy, pour into mugs and enjoy!
-Almond Milk Hot Chocolate for One-
- 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 1 cup almond milk
- Dash Himalayan pink salt & nutmeg or cinnamon
Mix sugar, cocoa, and salt in large mug. Heat almond milk in a microwave for 1-1/2 minutes or until hot. Gradually add hot almond milk to cocoa mixture in mug, stirring until well blended. Stir in vanilla. DONE!
Hope you enjoy!
