Hot Chocolate – Vegan & Healthy

This is a post for all my fellow chocolate lovers out there.. A while ago I started replacing my morning coffee or tea with hot chocolate on some days. So I thought I’d share my recipe with you as it’s so easy and delicious. Most people immediately think of the unhealthy chocolate flavoured powder for milk drinks when they hear „hot chocolate“. This is not what I mean when I say hot chocolate, I’m talking about the „real deal“ made with cacao powder or even cacao beans which you ground yourself first. This kind of hot chocolate is actually pretty…

Vegan Bounty Berry Crumble – Coconut Heaven

Weekend to me means treating myself to some extra delicious breakfast. So today I had some yummie berry crumble which I decided to name “Bounty Berry Crumble” as it actually tastes like Bounty.. just with berries. In the past I actually ate non-vegan crumble quite often and I used to make it with a lot of butter – which we all know is bad for your health and the animals, right? I’ve already made vegan crumble as well – with vegan butter – but today I decided to try something new as I didn’t have any butter at home anyway. So here we…

Creamy Tahini Zoodles with Tofu

As you might know, I absolutely love tahini! I actually wrote a whole blog post about why I love tahini so much, you can find it here. So because I love my tahini so much, I decided to share a recipe which includes tahini: Creamy Tahini Zoodles with Tofu For 1 portion you will need: 100g natural tofu 2 big zucchinis 50g (whole grain) spaghetti 2tbsp tahini 2tbsp nutritional yeast 1-2 garlic cloves 1tbsp mustard 1tbsp agave syrup salt, pepper water Note: I’m a big fan of zucchini noodles but as they don’t really keep me full, I always mix…

Pancake Sunday

It’s Sunday! <3 Which means it’s time for pancakes, right? People always ask me for a recipe for my pancakes but honestly I don’t really use any recipe and just put together the ingredients by feeling. Anyway, I decided to measure the ingredients for you today and to write down a little recipe. Probably one of the easiest pancake recipes ever.. For one pancake stack you will need: 1 ripe Banana 100g of your favourite flour 150ml of your favourite plant milk 1tbsp corn starch 1tsp baking powder Mash the banana with a fork and put it in a bowl.…

My Favourite Smoothie Recipes

I have never really been into smoothie bowls or smoothies. I had a smoothie here and there in the past but I wasn’t the biggest fan to be honest. I rather had a big bowl of oatmeal or nicecream than a big smoothie bowl. As I somehow, really don’t know why, developed a love for smoothie bowls this winter, I decided to share with you my favourite smoothie combos. They are all incredibly easy and you probably laugh when reading the “recipe” but as I often get asked for recipes, I decided to share them anyway. Note: of course you can…

Green Juice Recipe – no juicer needed!

Did you know you can make your own juices without a juicer? I don’t own a juicer but I really love green juices, especially after the juice cleanse I did last month. Buying them is pretty expensive plus you can’t even find them in the normal supermarkets around here. That’s the reason why I decided to give making my own juice a go even if I don’t have a blender. Here’s how I did it: Ingredients (for about 1l of juice) 1 banana 2 apples 500g kale 1/2 avocado 1/2 cucumber 1/2 broccoli head 2 handful of spinach 1 tbsp wheatgrass powder Procedure…

Vegan DIY Advent Calendar

  [English Below] Ich dachte, ich schreibe diesen Beitrag mal auch auf Deutsch, da es sich ohnehin hauptsächlich um deutsche Produkte handelt, die ich für den Adventskalender benutzt habe und das daher für Leute aus Deutschland vermutlich doch relevanter ist. Ich wollte gerne einen Adventskalender für meine Eltern füllen, was sich vegan doch gar nicht so einfach gestaltet, da die meisten kleinen Weihnachtssüßigkeiten von den gängigen Marken eher nicht vegan sind. Meine Eltern leben zwar nicht vegan, aber natürlich möchte ich mit meinem Geld dennoch ungern nicht-vegane Produkte unterstützen. Ich habe mich daher auf die Suche nach kleinen Dingen gemacht,…

French fries are unhealthy? Forget about that..

I wasn’t sure if this is actually worth a post but then I decided it is because: So many people complain about French fries being so unhealthy and having lots of calories and fat and that this is the reason they don’t eat them. Good news: You do not have to deny yourself French fries! Potatoes themselves are actually a health food, full of good stuff such as vitamin B6, potassium, vitamin C and fiber. They also contain a variety of phytonutrients that have antioxidant activity. At the same time they are low in calories and contain no cholesterol or fat. French fries…

Three easy ways to use pumpkin.

It’s pumpkin season, yay! But.. how do you prepare them for eating without any complicated recipes, you might be asking yourself? Good news: You don’t need a lot of time or crazy kitchen skills for a simple and quick pumpkin meal, that’s why I love them so much. I’m actually pretty lazy when it comes to cooking and don’t like to waste a lot of time in the kitchen that’s why I never use any long recipes for which you need tons of ingredients but rather keep it super simple. So, to give you some inspiration, here are 3 ways in…

Why I love tahini and you should, too.

I have to admit that I am obsessed, obsessed with tahini. For those of you who might wonder “What even is tahini?”: Tahini simply is sesame butter. You can either buy it or make it at home yourself, I always buy it. As a tip: Look if you can find some shop where you can buy it cheaper as it can be pretty expensive in regular supermarkets. I always get mine from a Turkish supermarket. So, what is so good about tahini? First of all: Tahini tastes amazing, as simple as that. It is rich in protein, vitamin E, B…
