I'm a human being on planet earth. I've lived hundreds of lifetimes. In this incarnation I'm here to advance medicine.

I’ve cut back on my caffeine intake – most days I don’t have any – but there are some mornings or afternoons that require a little pick-me-up. Being pregnant is tiring in and of itself, but being pregnant (especially in the third trimester; 5 weeks to go!) with an almost-three-year-old is downright exhausting.

Thank goodness for preschool (Lily goes 2 days a week for 2 1/2 hours, and she loves it!) and for this cappuccino, which has become my go-to caffeinated beverage.

Blender Vanilla Cappuccino

The recipe calls for just three ingredients and a high-speed blender, such as a Vitamix. You can probably get away with using a regular blender, but you might not get the same amount of frothiness; and let’s be honest, cappuccinos are all about the foam!
