Very-Berry Whole-Wheat Pancakes
Serves 3 (makes 6 5-inch pancakes)
Prep time: 20 minutes
Cook time: 35 minutes
1 1/2 cups whole-wheat flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp sea salt
1 cup (for cooking) + 6 tbsp (for topping) Dannon Light & Fit Vanilla Greek Nonfat Yogurt
1 egg
1 cup almond milk
Cooking spray (organic coconut, recommended)
1/2 cup fresh blueberries or diced strawberries
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
Special Equipment
Metal whisk
9-inch nonstick skillet or pan
1. Combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt in a medium-sized mixing bowl.
2. One at a time, add 1 cup yogurt, egg, and milk. Whisk until smooth.
3. Over low-medium heat, heat cooking spray in skillet.
4. Pour about 1/4 cup batter into the skillet, and let set until it bubbles, about 1 minute. Then add 6-7 blueberries or 4-5 strawberry pieces on top.
5. Once pancake edges begin to brown, stiffen, and bubble, use a spatula to carefully flip the pancake.
6. Cook the other side until golden brown, about 1 1/2-2 minutes. Remove from pan and set aside on a plate.
7. Repeat steps 4-6 until no batter is left. Cook time will shorten for each pancake as the pan becomes hotter.
8. Distribute remaining yogurt on top of pancakes, allocating about 1 tbsp per pancake. Sprinkle with cinnamon and serve immediately.

The Chinese dragon dance (similar to the 🦁 dance) is performed during festivals like Chinese New Year and China's National Day. The longer the dragon in the dance, the more luck it will bring to the community. Dragons are believed to symbolize good luck and possess qualities of power and dignity. πŸ‰

@auliicravalho is best known for playing the title character in #Moana. At only age 16 she has already broken barriers as the voice of Disney's first Polynesian princess. She is a native Hawaiian with a multicultural ethnic background. We're fully convinced that she'll be making 🌊🌊🌊 after her powerful rendition of the Oscar-nominated performance of How Far I'll Go with #LinManuelMiranda.
In celebration of #AsianPacificAmericanHeritageMonth this May, we're featuring some of our favorite Asian American and Pacific Islander American thinkers. They'll tell their stories about the rewards, challenges, and realities of straddling two identities β€” especially when the compatibility of the two has recently come under attack.

Cherry-Lime Rickey Ice Pops

"I've never really fit in anywhere my whole life, except now... I just couldn't relate to many people back in Korea. I moved back to Korea from Canada for 4 years after high school, and I couldn't adjust to my own culture.
In elementary school I was definitely bullied because I didn't hang out with just Koreans – I was always the one to be friends with whoever I click with, and for some reason I couldn't really relate and ended up feeling excluded because I wanted to hang out with other friends too. I supposedly was 'not Korean enough' for them.
I decided to come to United States because I remember visiting NYC when I was very young and telling myself I'm going to move here one day. Here in the United States, everyone tends to accept one another easily and no one readily judges you. You don't really have to hold yourself back and that's how I want to live my life – you can find your niche here and I have found mine in the Lower East Side." β€” @milkizm
@milkizm is a New York City based artist and creator. Her work is inspired by her upbringing in Korea and the struggle to fit into her Asian culture.
For #APAHM, we partnered up with @yungwolftown to highlight Asian Americans through the #norientalseries, who are using their voices to progress the #AAPI narratives.
"Oriental is often used as a misguided compliment usually to reduce our culture into a word because it is rarely fully understood. As Asian women, experiencing all the false stereotypes regarding us is absolutely tiring. Like that we are submissive, quiet and obedient.
There is also a mass fetishization of Asian women in society. All that can be traced back to colonization in Asia. There is a lack in physical representation in media when it comes to Asian Americans. Through these images, it is our way of showing the different variations of Asian femininity that is unapologetic & authentic." β€” @yungwolftown

Decorate the bottom of your legs the same way you would the lapel of your coat because they're equally important (and it's warm enough to just ditch all outerwear).
