Three Ways To Toast

Three Ways To Toast--Recipes at: stephanie-spring.comThree Ways To Toast--Recipes at: stephanie-spring.comThree Ways To Toast--Recipes at: stephanie-spring.comCheers to these three toasts! Not to be confused with cheers-ing with a bubbly drink in hand because obviously that’s off my radar these days. Are you wondering if these toasts are equally as good though? Just about! 😉

Recently, I’ve had a lot of you ask me what I eat for breakfast on a daily basis and these three toasts deserve all the attention. I eat at least two to three of these each week without fail. They are filling and versatile but also paaaaacked with flavor!


The ezekiel bread has clean ingredients (unlike most breads) and is kept in the freezer so you won’t have to consume the entire loaf in only a few days. This is the main bread we keep in the house and Eric and I both love it! I linked my favorite ingredients below so you can toast with me throughout the week! 😉 Three Ways To Toast--Recipes at: stephanie-spring.comThree Ways To Toast--Recipes at: stephanie-spring.com Three Ways To Toast--Recipes at: stephanie-spring.com Three Ways To Toast--Recipes at: stephanie-spring.com

Chocolate Banana Mocha Smoothie

I’m always up for a smoothie year-round. In the heat of the summer, a smoothie is so refreshing. A smoothie during the winter? I’ll take it! (Especially when it’s perfectly packed with so many nutrients that I need). I love how much you can mix and match your ingredients as you create a completely new tasty concoction.

Smoothies are my go-to for breakfast or a snack, especially since pregnancy has given me the craving for everything iced and frozen. I haven’t really had any food aversions throughout pregnancy so far (thank goodness), except one thing….


I can’t sip on my morning cup of joe anymore. Hot coffee that is. I still love the flavor of it but can’t seem to down a hot cup for the life of me. To still get the flavor and little caffeine I need from time to time, I’ve been making iced or frozen coffee drinks to satisfy the craving. I found this recipe from Lakita which combines coffee in a smoothie. It is SO delicious and exactly what I need these days. Thank you Lakita for such a yummy recipe!

In case you need a dinner idea, see the recipe Lakita and I swapped last year, here and be sure to check her blog out for a TON of other mouth-watering recipes!

Also, how cute is that tea towel? Unfortunately it’s sold out but I linked some other’s below


Ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 cup strong brewed coffee (I used this kind).
  • 1 large frozne banana
