Vegan "Milk" Chocolate! First attempt!

A while back, I bought (fair trade and organic) cocoa butter and powdered almond milk (well, basically powdered almonds - since it's solely made from almonds). For all of you German speakers: I got the almond milk powder here and the cocoa butter as well.

Today, I felt Christmas-y and ready to try something new, so I tried to make some milk chocolate. I am not 100 % happy with how it turned out, so I won't release the recipe yet, but I promise, I will once it's good enough!

It's not bad... it's just not perfect yet.

It's a wrap!

I love wraps because you can fill them with whatever you like, they are great if you want to bring lunch to work or school and you can also use them to use up leftovers.

Ingredients for six wraps:

most of the ingredients are optional, of course. If you happen to hate red cabbage, I would suggest you don't use it.

Nacho "Cheese" Sauce

Die deutsche Übersetzung findet ihr unter dem englischen Rezept!

Do you know this sad feeling when you have nachos, but decided to skip the cheese sauce because of the dairy? Oh. The sad feeling. I just found the holy cheese grail for you!

Welcome to a perfect Sunday night! X-Files and nachos <3

So creamy!

Kitchen Basics: Hazelnut Milk

My favorite non-dairy milk is a specific brand of oat milk (Kölln Smelk in case any one is interested). It's more expensive than the average soy milk, but I like it because it tastes great, and the ingredients are not shipped across the world, as the oat is grown (and then also processed) in Germany. I'm absolutely willing to pay that price (usually €1.79 to €2.19 for a liter), but when I saw Jérôme Eckmeier make hazelnut milk, I knew I had to try this myself. It's really easy, too! And cheaper. And tasty!


  • 1l of water
  • 2 table spoons of sunflower oil
  • 100g of hazelnuts (soaked in cold water over night)
  • 1 table spoon of unrefined cane sugar
  • a pinch of salt
