Vegan Kitchen Staple: Tahini Rawnola



Hey guys how is it going? I'm writing this on a beautiful Sunday afternoon, looking outside of my window into a small little park. Berlin is seriously the most beautiful city during the summer - I'm falling in love with it again every year.

Vegan Coconut Protein Cupcakes w/ Coconut Frosting


Hey peeps, 

let's talk cupcakes. They haven't been a big thing in Germany when I was little (okay that sounds like I'm old haha). I think the first time I actually tasted and made them was about 10 years ago when I did some serious research about what fancy thing to do for my birthday party. I died the frosting blue and pink and green it they were delicious. 

Vegan Berry Marble Smoothie with Soy Yogurt



Hey guys, 

I've been really into these cool marble smoothies and overnight oats lately. Check out my creations on my Instagram (@mangoandcocos) if you're interested! This smoothie/nice cream was my pre-workout meal and I really felt the energy that it provided! I was really crashing the workout (Did BodyPump) even though it was super hard I kept going - wooo ;) 

Berries are actually SO good for you, packed with antioxidants, vitamins and fiber they seriously are superfoods. I used a mix of frozen berries, but this works with just frozen blueberries, raspberries and strawberries, too (just make sure these are sliced up because they`re quite hard to blend when they're not). I layered it with natural soy yogurt but you can use coconut yogurt, almond yogurt or soy quark as well. Make sure to put 1 tbsp of the yogurt into the smoothie as well, this makes it super fluffy for some reason! 

Vegan Berry Marble Smoothie w/ Yogurt 

serves 1 

Ingredients

  • 1 very ripe banana
  • 3/4 cup frozen berries 
  • 1 tbsp rice protein 
  • 1 tbsp + 1/2 cup soy yogurt 

Method

  1. Slice the banana and blend all of the ingredients but the 1/2 cup of soy yogurt in a food processor. Make sure that there are no berry bits left. Run the food processor for another 30 seconds to make sure the mixture gets really fluffy. Like clouds. I promise. 
  2. Layer in a mason jar with the remaining yogurt and top with some blueberries. 
  3. Enjoy! 

Why I don't hate Mondays & Three Tips on How To Be More Mindful

Being probably the only person I know who doesn’t hate Mondays, today I want to give you a little reminder. 
Some times the days, weeks even months or years rush by and we stand there, passively taking part but without really taking any notice of it - until it hits us. ‚What have I done in the last few weeks? I don’t remember, I guess they’ve just been normal days.‘ But then, there are moments when you feel like time stops for a little while, moments of pure bliss, joy and happiness. Now the question is: What makes these two so different? 

I can’t give you the one perfect answer to this one because that would mean I’d hold the key to life lasting happiness - and I don’t. But I do want to share my thoughts on it with you. 
The only ‚thing‘ that is able to make these moments be so different from each other is: You. It’s you and your consciousness that is in control. Thinking about the specialty of this moment, being aware of its rareness is what makes is unique in the first place. Without these exact thoughts it’s nothing more than a moment that just happened. Great sunsets happen every second. A child is born every second. What makes these events special is the perceiver only. 

Vegan Salted Caramel Granola with Walnuts and Figs


Hey peeps, 
spring has officially arrived here in northern Germany and I couldn't be happier. If there is one thing that always lifts my mood it's bright sunshine on my skin and birds singing outside. I'm writing this in front of a huge window looking into the blue sky that seems to be endless. 

Veganes Berlin - Das New Deli Yoga


Hey ihr Lieben!

Heute stelle ich euch eines meiner absoluten Lieblingsspots in Berlin vor: Das New Deli Yoga! Hier stimmt einfach alles: Essen, Trinken, Einrichtung, das unglaublich nette Personal, die richtigen Vibes... einfach der perfekte Ort um sich mit der besten Freundin auf stundenlange Gespräche zu treffen, ruhig ein bisschen zu arbeiten oder mit der ganzen Clique einen tolles Sonntagsfrühstück zu verbringen.

Protein Chia Pudding with Berries



Hey guys,

today I'm bringing you a spring inspired recipe to get you into a good mood, that will make you feel great and look great! I'm talking chia pudding!

I'm pretty sure all of you know the benefits of consuming chia seeds by now, but just to give you a little round up, these little seeds...
  • are rich in fiber 
  • are rich in protein
  • contain good omega 3 fatty acids 
  • are rich in manganese, magnesium and phosphorus 
  • may lower the risk of heart disease and diabetes 
  • improve your exercise performance

Quite impressive, right? 

Cashew Coconut and Chocolate Protein Bites


Hey beauties,

lately, there hasn't been a day where I didn't snack on one of these. I love having healthy little snacks in the fridge so every time I get a craving I can easily satisfy it with good, whole vegan foods that give me energy and keep me full till lunch or dinner. These two are my favourites, cashew coconut and chocolate fudge! I'd highly recommend trying them with different nuts (like hazelnuts, to make a Nutella version or macadamia to make shortbread-style bites) and experimenting with different other ingredients, too! Use these recipes as a guide and adapt them to your likings, I'm excited to see your recreations!

Veganes Berlin - Das Rawtastic


Hey ihr Lieben! 

Heute melde ich mich mal mit einem deutschen Post, in dem ich euch eines meiner liebsten veganen Restaurants in Berlin vorstellen möchte. Es ist dabei nicht nur 100% vegan, sondern dazu noch 100% roh (das heißt nichts wurde über 47°C erhitzt!) und 100% lecker. Laura und ich durften uns quer durch das ganze Menü probieren und ich würde gerne unsere Erfahrungen mit euch teilen.

Matcha-Kombucha-Shots - Kombucha ist dafür bekannt die Leber zu entgiften, Krebs vorzubeugen und bei Verdauungsproblemen zu helfen, kombiniert mit dem bekannten japanischen Grünteepulver bilden die Shots die perfekte Grundlage für einen Tag voller Uni und Lernstress. Der Matcha Shot hat mir persönlich am zweitbesten Geschmeckt. Auf Nummer 1 kommt definitiv Ingwer und das Schlusslicht bildet Spirulina, der schmeckt aber wider Erwarten auch sehr gut!   

Wholegrain Vegan Waffles - simple and oil free



Hola guys, it's me again with another ... breakfast recipe! 

I'm happy you found your way here and I really you try this recipe out since it's the bomb, seriously. 

I just recently started making waffles and my first attempts to get them nice and crispy seemed to fail in many ways. They weren't fluffy or crispy or anything good. But after experimenting a bit with different ingredients and measures, I can finally present you my first vegan high carb low fat and super simple waffle recipe to knock you out of your socks. Ready?

Vegan Breakfast Bowl and A Little Talk About Minimalism


Hey you lovely people,

recently and thanks to my good friend Laura I've been reading a lot about minimalism and how decluttering, prioritizing and taking a step out of consumerism may - and will - affect your life positively. Over the last few months, I realized how happy I become when I just throw stuff I don't need away, for good. I became more aware of the fact that having less stuff will make you more organized instantly. You don't even have to worry about tidying up if there's nothing to tidy up. It just feels so good looking at a white wall, a white sheet, an organized desk, a clean surface. But if it was that easy, why is not everybody living a minimalist life? I thought about the issues I had and came up with my top two reasons why people choose to live in a cluttered space with endless piles of unused stuff.
