Hi guys! Welcome back to my website again! Sorry for the very long break. My husband, Nick and I decided to take a long vacation in Italy. So, we were in Italy from the beginning of May until the end of June hehehe.

After coming back from Italy, there were always things going on and they just kept me busy. And I thought, before my German course starts again I should write something here.

So, currently I am obsessed with plant-based meal concept and have been cooking a lot of vegan meals. I thought to share some of them.

Here is how I start my day with Avocado Almond Milk Shake (vegan). Believe me, you’ll love it!

P.S. You can also mix with banana or some spinach. I’ve tried it and it was soooooooo good!

Ingredients:

2 Riped Avocados

350-400ml of Almond Milk (you can also sub with wheat milk, tastes really yummy too)

2 Spoonfuls of Chia Seeds

Instructions:

Cut the avocados and put them in the blender, and pour the almond milk in it. Blend!

I don’t really like sweet shake, if you do, you can add some palm sugar syrup or other syrup.

Pour the shake in your glass and add some chia seeds.

Enjoy!

 

 

Yoghurt Muesli Parfait (American Parfait)

This delicious, flavorful and healthy Yoghurt Muesli Parfait will just make your day “parfait” (parfait means perfect in French). I’m in love with American parfaits currently ❤️❤️❤️. In America, parfaits are not only the European version but also other versions that include yoghurt, granola, nuts, muesli, liqueurs and so on. In Germany, we will not call this parfait, we just call it Yoghurt Muesli.
This parfait is very easy to make, you just layer your favorite dairy products along with your favorite fruits and with some crunchy crackers or muesli and so on.
My husband, Nicolas and I had this for breakfast and we both were totally in love with this one! And I’m sure that we’re going to have it again tomorrow!
Low fat yoghurt, crunchy mango muesli, fresh mango dices, fresh passion fruits, chia seeds, a drizzle of honey and a very thin slice of lemon were just a fantastic combination! We ate the lemon slices and it tasted so good with the mango muesli together.

Ingredients:

2 Cups of Yoghurt (I like to use low fat one).

1/2 Cup of Crunchy Mango Muesli.

1/2 of ripe Mango, diced small.

2 Passion Fruits, cut and scooped out.

2 Tsp of Chia seeds.

2 Slices of Lemon, very thin.

Honey, to taste.

Instructions:

  1. I prepare my parfaits in two dessert glasses.
  2. Put in the yoghurt, one cup each glass.
  3. Spread the on top of the yoghurt.
  4. Add in the mango dices, chia seeds and passion fruits.
  5. A drizzle of honey.
  6. Enjoy!

P.S. Make sure you get organic lemons, because if you don’t. Non-organic lemons contain a lot of wax and some other chemicals which are not good for your health 🙂

Preparation : 30-35 Minutes

Baking : 10 Minutes

Serves : Servings 30

Cookies Episode : 10

If you want chewy inside but crispy on the outside chocolate chip cookies, you definitely need to save this recipe. After you try it, you’ll never look back 🙂 White chocolate + Matcha = Best combination!

Of course you can use other chocolates like dark chocolate, semi dark chocolate etc. In my opinion, white chocolate tastes better with matcha green tea than the others.

Ingredients:

150 gr (2/3 cup) of unsalted softened Butter.

150 gr (3/4 cup) of granulated Sugar.

225 gr (about 8 oz) of all-purposed Flour.

1 large Egg, at room temperature.

200 gr (about 7 oz) of White Chocolate, chopped (you can also use chocolate chips). If you don’t want it too sweet, reduce to 150 g.

A pinch of Salt.

1 Tsp of Baking Soda.

1 Package of Vanilla Sugar (10 gr), if you use vanilla extract, you need 1 Tsp

1 Tbsp of Green Tea Matcha

1 Tsp of Corn Starch

Officially it’s spring in Munich, Germany now! I know, I know it’s snowing outside, with the temperature of minus 6 degrees Celsius. Ouch! Even it is too cold outside, but it doesn’t freeze my craving for mango sticky rice dessert.

Mango season is here, people! Whenever you go, you’ll see mangos all over the supermarkets. So, I decided to buy some and make my own Thai Sticky Rice Mango Dessert. Because the mangos I bought were not as sweet as in Asia, so I decided to make mango cream out of one.
