Mango Pineapple Smoothie Bowl

June 13, 2017

Today, we hit a new record. The thermometer shows 95°F (35°C) degrees in the apartment! Since we live in an apartment directly below the roof and without AC, the current heat wave here in Boston converts our place into a sauna. The good thing is: I can do hot yoga for free now ;-) For cooling down somehow, I am feeding myself with these delicious pastel yellow smoothie bowls. They… continue reading »

Strawberry Banana Smoothie

May 27, 2017

It’s no surprise that I am a huge fan of strawberry smoothies. Honestly, who isn’t. This is my go-to recipe if I am craving something sweet but don’t want to go down the chocolate route. This naturally sweet 3-ingredient strawberry banana smoothie is simply amazing. It’s so tasty, fruity, creamy, and sweet that you wouldn’t believe it’s sugar-free.

Basic chia pudding with coconut milk

March 14, 2017

This is my basic recipe for chia pudding. I typically use coconut milk for chia puddings – I like its taste and color – but feel free to substitute with any other plant-based milk like soy or almond milk. The color may vary slightly. Smoothies and fruit juices taste great as well, when used instead of milk. I use 5 tablespoons of liquid for every tablespoon of chia seeds as a… continue reading »

Pulled Pork Sliders

February 23, 2017

These pulled pork sliders make me speechless. Omg, they are soooooo tasty! I made the pulled pork in a heavy pot in the oven and it took the meat less than 3 hours to fall apart when pierced with a fork. But these sliders …I don’t know if I crave them because of the slightly smoky and not overwhelming pulled pork or the combination of all the homemade ingredients including… continue reading »

Lazy People’s Ice Cream (no-churn, no eggs)

July 22, 2016

No-churn, no eggs, and only three ingredients: This ice cream is a real game changer. It’s ridiculously easy and quick to throw together, and yet so delicious. With this recipe, making ice cream is a 5-minute job rather than a weekend project. Seriously. You don’t need an ice cream maker to churn the ice cream, nor do you have to return obsessively to the freezer to stir. You don’t need to… continue reading »

Green Smoothie Bowl

June 28, 2016

Ever since I’ve tried my first green smoothie, I got hooked. Well, let’s say my first green smoothie that actually did look like a green smoothie. About one year ago, I developed a green smoothie recipe for the Austrian daily I am writing for. At my first attempt, I added way too much leafy greens to the smoothie and didn’t use a high-speed blender. Can you imagine how that turned out? Well,… continue reading »

Orange Muffins

April 8, 2016

I simply love the combination of oranges and almonds – particularly in cakes. And what’s not to love about this combo? Ever since I have developed this gorgeous tasting Blood Orange Almond Cake about a year ago, I am including these two ingredients in all sorts of cakes. These orange muffins are a new favorite of mine, so it’s high time to post the recipe before orange season is over… continue reading »

Healthy Strawberry Smoothie

August 27, 2015

This flavor bursting, sugar-free, creamy and vegan strawberry smoothie is ready in a few seconds and only needs two ingredients. Wait … 3 ingredients if you count the ice as an actual ingredient. I got crazy enthusiastic at the market again and bought some boxes of strawberries. As you may have noticed, strawberries spoil very quickly, so this smoothie is a good way to get rid of fruit in a… continue reading »

Lemon Curd

January 15, 2015

Here is a classic you don’t want to miss for breakfast: Lemon Curd. And I’m talking about a lemon curd with the perfect balance of tangy and sweet. Many recipes are just using egg yolks for making lemon curd but I think adding both, whole eggs and yolks, makes a lighter, more lemon like, less rich and less eggy curd. Most of the times, I eat this treat for breakfast, just like shown… continue reading »
