How To Make Oat Milk – Simple And Cheap

During one of my housesits in the midst of nowhere, the worst case scenario came true! I ran out of soy milk. You might say this is no big of a deal, but for a coffee lover like me, the prospect of putting my daily dose of caffeine in danger, did not seem so appealing.

Luckily, the homeowner had provided me with a huge bag of oats, lingering in the pantry waiting to be transformed into delicious, warming porridge. But, I knew I could do more with it, after all I had enjoyed store-bought oat drinks before.

Cinnamon Apple Granola

This granola is one of my oldest and most loved recipes. Even before veganism found its way into my life, I loved to have a crunchy and sweet granola for breakfast. But I never trusted the expensive, ready made & plastic-wrapped stuff. So I came up with my own, healthy version, when I was about 16 years old.

Green Protein Smoothie Bowl

Smoothies have always been one of my favorite ways to start the day. Packed with fresh fruits and veggies, they are a great and delicious way to get your fill of energy-boosting proteins and healthy fats.

Not all smoothies are the same: There are bright pink smoothies, yellow or healthy green smoothies, thick purple açai bowls and nice cream, which is basically a banana smoothie without additional milk or water. We even see golden tumeric and deep blue smoothies on Instagram.

Traditional German Apple Pie

Your family and friends will rave when you serve them this amazing German Apple Pie!

This is without lying one of my most requested recipes.

A friend ́s birthday coming up? A new flatmate moved in? Is it already Sunday again? Time to bake German Apple Pie! By now I can probably recite the ingredients in my sleep. Actually, I am pretty sure that I do dream of Apple Pie once in a while… Fresh from the oven and topped with vanilla caramel ice-cream. Hallelujah.

This family favorite is as simple and quick as it is comforting and delightful. My grandma is the proud creator of a German delicacy, or “Apfelstreuselkuchen” as she would say. Don’t worry if this tongue-twister challenges you, I know what will definitely not… You guessed it. Making a bad-ass vegan German Apple Pie.

Earth Day Smoothie Bowl

Better than any Unicorn drink you could ever imagen: The magical Earth Day Smoothie Bowl, straight from a baby blue fairy tale!

A sparkly pink drink sold by a huge coffeeshop chain, has been making baristas cry for a couple of days now. A barista in Colorado, published a video rant on Twitter about the drink, saying that it is terribly difficult to make and very messy. “Please don’t get it!” he said in the video. “I have unicorn crap all in my hair and on my nose. I have never been so stressed out in my entire life.”

The most magical ingredient of the expansive pink frapuccino though? A shitload of refined sugar. 59 g to be exact. That is 15 teaspoons ladies and gentleman. 15. I am just going to let that number sit.

Not to mention, that the frap is not vegan. Though it could be made without cream and milk. But think twice. Do you really want a drink made from your barista’s tears??? We all know that this drink exists only to be instagramed. So, I took it in my hands to come up with a much healthier, cheaper and homemade version – that is equally pretty to look at and totally instagramable!

About Relationships Between Vegans and Meat-Eaters

“I would send her off to where she came from. I mean…of course, she shouldn’t go vegan JUST for me. But if she doesn’t make the connection after two, three months of dating me, with all the information I provide, then I will cut her loose without a second thought. Can’t handle that much indifference and ignorance.”

That was what I got from a guy, I met not so long ago at one of New York’s weekly meet ups for vegans, when I asked him curiously, if he would ever date a meat-eater. I was astonished by his blunt honesty and a tiny bit offended. In all the years of my plant-based journey, it had never occurred to me, that I should rule out a date because the person I wanted to sleep, eat and spend most of my days with, didn’t mind eating animals for lunch. In fact, all the men I have ever seriously dated were heavy meat-eaters. Dang… Now that I see it infront of my eyes like that, I can not but wonder, was that a mistake?
