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!
