Vegan recap 2016 -restaurants, cooking and vegan holidays

It’s the end of the year and we are looking back to a lot of vegan places, we had the chance to visit, vegan food we ate in restaurants, got delivered or cooked by ourselves and many beautiful human beings we met while exploring the vegan world ๐ŸŒฑ๐ŸŒ

There is not much to say, looking at all the pictures we made, we are feeling just grateful for all places we saw, people we met and seeing that there are actually so many people out there who really care about this planet and all live on it! Thank you to everyone from all our heart!!! โค๏ธ

Pistachio basil ice cream


This is a really easy recipe for homemade delicious ice cream without sugar. It is great for a supernice special desert for when you invite friends for dinner because you can prepare it earlier and keep it in the freezer. My guests were really surprised how well the flavours harmonised. The basil freshens the creamy coconut and pistachio flavour and gives it a nice twist. Moreover it makes the color go nice and green. I really love this ice cream because it’s so easy to make but is sooo special. Everyone will love you if you treat them with this ๐Ÿ˜‰
For three portions:

  • 3-4 ripe bananas (they have to have brown spots!)
  • handful of pistachio nuts
  • 3-5 tablespoons coconut milk (take care to not make it to liquid!)
  • small handful fresh basil
  • Maple syrup


First you need to freeze the bananas for approximately 6 hours. I peel and cut them and freeze them inside a tupper box. Then you just put all the ingredients, except half the amount of pistachio, into your food processor and blend. You’ll have to stop and scrape down the sides for a few times. When everything is really creamy you take it out and fill in a tupper box and freeze it for about 1 hour.ย Add the other half of the pistachios after half an hour. You’ll have to stir the ice cream for a few times so that everything freezes equally and stays creamy.
ENJOY!!!!!!

Tutti Island in Kreuzberg

Today I introduce you to nothing more than just the best friggin falafel place in whole of Berlin. This place is just so amazingly fresh and tasty with such a great variety of homemade sudanese specialities. We ordered a Falafel plate and Falafel Pita bread both were just ridiculous explosions of goodness available at a very fair price. The crispy Falafel in Pita bread was filled with heaps, no really with H E A P S ย of mouthwatering peanut- and sesamesauรŸe which makes this little Falafel place my new favourite “hey lets go out and eat something incredibly yummie!” place. And don’t you miss out on the Falafel plate which has aaaall this crazy good stuff like creamy aubergine paste, hummus, grilled Tofu, grilled veggies and big beans next to fresh salad and pita bread. When we finished our meal we felt like ordering it all once again just because it was so good ๐Ÿ™‚
This is a very vegan friendly eating place: all the food except the halloumi is vegan. Even the sweet datecookies which you can get for 0.50 c (!) as dessert are fully vegan. Also the owner is a really friendly dude and gives away free tea and cookies to his regular customers.
I can’t wait to go again, who’s in?

Vegan Kebap at Fusion Festival

Hello from Berlin,
this is the yummie vegan kebap from the Kantine NEUN food stall at the Fusion Festival where I danced my feet off ย last week. The Festival takes place every year in the last week of june, 2h north from Berlin. All the festival is strictly vegetarian and there are many vegan options offered. ย What is also pretty cool is that there is no advertisement for any brands in the whole festival space and they don’t even advertise for themselves. It’s a very alternative, colorful artist world which they created with great detailed artworks on the many many openair dancefloors and allover the area . Feels like an allover LOVE & PEACE on this old abandoned russian airport ๐Ÿ™‚
check out their website:
http://www.fusion-festival.de/
Tickets are purchased through Lotterie, that means you have to win to be able to go there ๐Ÿ™‚ I wish you luck for next year!

And here the the link for the veganfriendly Kantine NEUN Restaurant with many organic vegan deliciousies, based in Kreuzberg, Berlin :

I will try it out soon and of course review it for you asap.

staying fit in Cuba

After a lot of tasty but also big and heavy cuban dinner times it’s time to start some sports also! But where to go and what to do?

Firts: A little Yoga session you can make nearly everywhere, no matter how small or big your room is! You just have to do it, best directly in the mornung, without thinking too much!

Second: dance!! There are everywhere a lot of classes to participate for Salsa, Rumba and and and! The nicest one I had in Trinidad at a casa particular with the well knowen teacher Mireya Medina Rodriguez. You find her in Antonio Maceo 472, Trinidad. One class (60 minutes) costs just 5 Euro! But don’t forget to train later by yourself in one of all the vibrating places there to dance!!

Third: if you are somewhere at the sea, don’t be shy, make sport directly at the beach! Jogging at the beach when the sun goes up is just amazing! But also Yoga and other exercises are nice to make with a fresh wind from the sea!

Forth: If you have good shoes for jogging also the Malecon in Havana is a nice route! And also a long one. You can make all the way directly next to the open wide sea!

Fifth: walk walk walk! you don’t only save money for taxis or coco-taxies, but do also something for your shape. And over this you even will explore more of your environment!

vegan travel diaries Cuba

After one month without internet, I am finally back and have good advices for vegan travellers through Cuba! It was not as easy as I thought, the fresh and big mangos and avocados I had in mind, where not really easy to find on the streets and the supermarkets were full of rum, but neither fruits and vegetables nor even water. So at the end all was more difficult but still possible!

I made out 2 vegetarian restaurants which were really nice, found out the best ways to stay fit in a country, where the portions in the evening are big and heavy!! And all what you have to know to stay good and healthy and …. vegan ๐Ÿ™‚

see the following posts!….

But first one thing which is worth mentioning it! I actually had the first time a real vegan menu in the flight!! But not only this, it looked so much more tasty, that my boyfriend, who got something like cheesy Maccaroni, wanted also the vegan menu! But what impressed me the most, was the margarine (see picture), because that nearly all types of margarine are not vegan is advanced vegan knowledge ๐Ÿ˜‰ oh, and not to forget: as dessert one of my favorites… Apple crumple!!! So, a good start and hopefully in future, more airleines understand that cheese and butter are not vegan! ๐Ÿ™‚
