We've all been there - feeling like a complete zombie until you've had your morning coffee!
It isn't great to rely on caffeine to get you through the day but there's nothing wrong with the occasional coffee pick me up.
To get your coffee fix without drinking way too much coffee or spending a fortune in Costa, we've got some ideas:
Have you added coconut oil to your coffee before?
Coconut oil is the go-to for everything these days from a natural moisturiser to making food/drink taste amazing. It will give you a creamy coffee that's dairy-free and will definitely give you the extra kick you need.
Coffee cubes are the way forward!
Sick of your iced coffee being watered down? Well, you need to make some coffee cubes instead and all your problems are solved! You could even add a bit of chocolate milk if you wanted to sweeten up your afternoon beverage that is helping you through your library sesh.
Pancakes + coffee = THE best start to your day
We all love a pancake now and again but don't bother messing around with your food in one hand and your morning coffee in the other, just put them together. Add a (large) cup of coffee to your batter to take your breakfast to the next level...
Banana bread with a twist
You might have had some before but adding coffee and walnuts will make it even better! Sometimes you've just got to treat yourself and banana bread is perfect because you can have it for breakfast or as an evening treat. Plus, it includes fruit meaning it counts as one of your 5-a-day, right?
A sweet treat on the go
Speaking of baking, flapjacks are ideal to make in a big batch and have now and again instead of picking up snacks at uni. There are a couple of different ways you can make these flapjacks - either adding coffee to the mixture or the icing. Serious coffee lovers will probably do both!
Once the weather starts picking up...
We're officially in Spring and once the April showers are out the way, you can start revising in the sun or just relaxing outside with your friends. These vegan cappuccino ice lollies will be just what you need to keep refreshed- they taste amazing AND don't require much skill either!
