Is it a breakfast? A dessert? A snack? It can be whatever you want- I won’t tell you how to run your life! I personally enjoy mine in the morning since I make it the night before. Chia seeds are an excellent source of energy, zero net carbs, & epic fiber. Turning them into pudding is just an excellent bonus! …

When you think “Keurig” I bet you think of a hot cup of coffee right? Well now they’ve rolled out with Brew Over Ice options- perfect for the whole family! When I went to Walmart the variety was awesome- everything from iced tea to low calorie drinks to iced coffee! My husband actually isn’t a coffee fan & during the summer we don’t reach for hot drinks as much so this really helps us get more bang for our buck with the Keurig we have! In a pinch I started making these great popsicles that are super easy to recreate! Keep reading to check them out & make your own!…
Want to hear a secret? Mug cakes are my ongoing addiction. Mug brownies are gooey & mug pies are sweet but… Angel Food Cake made in a mug is just too easy to pass up. I have a big container full of half angel food cake & half devil’s food cake. Not a chocolate fan? Use another type! But this is my favorite duo personally & one choice does NEED to be angel food cake or it won’t work! Keep reading to check out my Valentine’s Day version of this easy & sweet treat!
Your basic formula for a 3-2-1 mug cake- 3 tablespoons of the mentioned cake mixture, 2 tablespoons of water, & one minute in the microwave. Then…ding! Cake! Obviously your microwave might need 45 seconds or even to add ten seconds- microwaves are weird like that. keep an eye on your cake!
When it comes out, it will look something like this spongy confection here! See how it seriously looks like a sponge? Yeah, that is quite tasty!
So what did I use for raspberry flavoring? Not fresh raspberries unfortunately…they just didn’t look good at the store. I opted for some freeze dried ones which I crushed up fine. You can use other types of flavoring but beware of making your cake dense or watery. You can also add a bit of chocolate chips if you’d like!
I added strawberries because those did look good at the store! Yum! Bonus points if you try to cut them into hearts & they come out as “abstract hearts” like mine!
What makes this even better? Sprinkles. & Valentine’s Day colored M&Ms because…why not. I guess you don’t need to add candies but yum, so good!

First off, I can’t drink this in the morning. I tried the first time & about fainted. It smells just like sponge cake & strawberries even front the outside of the bag & not much like coffee. It is very interesting but too sweet for me in the morning. However, the afternoon is a different story!
I tend to drink my coffee black sometimes with a splash of foam. This needed sugar though. The strawberry flavoring is a touch bitter & a few teaspoons of my raw sugar fixed it right up. I love this in the afternoon & iced. It is a sweet treat & better than a lot of drinks I get when I go out. This would also be tasty blended with vanilla ice cream I think.
I found my bag of Dunkin Donuts Strawberry Shortcake Coffee at Target but you can find them at grocery stores & Walmart as well now. Much more convenient than in the past! This is marketed as a seasonal spring/summer blend so if you want it you’ll need to snap it up!
