Just a quick hello from my kitchen on this Saturday morning! 🙋🏼 I made spinach & pumpkin smoothie bowls - what a treat after endless days of eating muesli. Really hope everyone is fine!

Being on Instagram is not for me at the moment so please don't feel neglected if I'm not engaging with you. It doesn't mean I don't wanna stay in touch with all you lovely souls. ❤ I hope you understand. 🙏 I'll be back at some point and hope to still find some of you waiting here when I do! Much love, Caro

Ingredients (serves 2 as a snack or one hungry): 1 frozen banana, 1 handful baby spinach, 1 large persimmon, 3 tbsp pumpkin puree (I used homemade hokkaido puree), small piece of ginger, 1 tsp gingerbread spice, oat milk to blend

Toppings: Greek figs, persimmon slices, pumpkin seeds, hemp hearts, dried horned pansy petals, almond butter drizzle

Here's another round of smoothie bowls from last weekend at home. I'm already sitting in my seminar room so it's mostly overnight oats at the desk for me these days. Would you guys be interested in my favourite recipes?

Ingredients (serves 2): 1 frozen banana, 2 large handfuls baby spinach, 4 small pears from our neighbour's garden (our tree got sick this year 😕), a handful of green grapes, 1/2 avocado, coconut milk to blend

Toppings: red grapes, figs, green kiwi, @original_beans cacao nibs, bee pollen, activated dried buckwheat

Cozy morning at home with the family, sharing a big green smoothie bowl with my mum. 💚 After a pretty annoying & stressful week I just needed to head straight home yesterday. Real life has been tough and messy lately which is why I'm pretty much absent from Instagram these days. I hope you guys understand. Trying to find some piece and quiet in my mind - social media isn't exactly being helpful.

Ingredients: 1 frozen banana, 2 large handfuls fresh baby spinach, a handful of pomelo pieces, 1/2 avocado (my mum keeps buying for me even though I told her not to, so may as well use it 🙈), 2 mandarins

Toppings: gorgeous figs, grapes, physalis, dried mulberries, hemp hearts, cacao nibs, bee pollen, almond butter

I am posting an empty plate today cause for 1.4 million children in Africa THIS is reality. In our colourful & shining social media world it is easy to forget how fortunate we all are. Please remember what an immeasurable luck it is to live in our Western World with picture-perfect supermarket shelves, farmer's markets and food delivery services.

Imagine what it would be like not to know when you'll be able to have your next meal. Think about this feeling next time you're acting wasteful. Appreciate your produce, buy local & seasonal, create leftover meals, inform yourself. Not just today cause it's #worldhungerday - but EVERY day! To support @unicef_ch post an empty plate and use the hashtag #emptyplates on Instagram & Facebook.

Chai-spiced oatmeal with figs & almond butter! Ever since autumn - with it's rainy days, wind and cold nights - has arrived I find myself craving warm foods more often. 😋 Comforting bowls of oatmeal are one of my number one choices!

What I love about oatmeal is that variations are pretty much limitless. For this one I infused my nutmilk with chai tea before cooking the oats in it. I also love to add grated veggies or fruits like carrot or apples alongside yummy warming spices like cinnamon, cardamom, nutmeg or ginger. Not to forget my all-time favorite pumpkin puree! How do you guys jazz up your oatmeal?

Ingredients: 1/2 cup oats, 1 cup homemade chai-spiced infused almond milk, 1 tsp flax seed, pinch of salt --> brought to the boil, then simmered for 10 mins.

Toppings: whole & mashed raspberries, chopped date, almond butter, fig, hemp hearts, puffed quinoa

What better way to start a Sunday than with a delicious raspberry smoothie bowl - I was lucky enough to find some very last fresh raspberries on the farmer's market and turned them into a refreshing treat! My secret ingredient, yet again, is silken tofu. 😊 Just love it in smoothie bowls especially when combined with lemon juice & zest. So light, fluffy and flavourful! Have a relaxing Sunday everyone! Much love, Caro

Ingredients: 1/2 frozen banana, 1 cup fresh raspberries, 200g silken tofu, juice & zest of 1/2 organic lemon

Toppings: coconut cream, banana, coconut flakes, whole & mashed raspberries, @original_beans Cusco Chuncho 100% chocolate, chopped almonds, bee pollen

Happy FriYay peeps! So here's the results of my spontaneous midweek baking activities: vegan pear & chocolate cake with a secret ingredient. I didn't follow a recipe for this one, it was more of a leftover experiment. 🙂 I had a sad block of silken tofu sitting in my fridge and thought - why not use it?

My week has been so crazy busy - I just got a chance to photograph the cake this morning in the still very gloomy light at 7:30 am. It turned our really rich & chocolatey, even though I used very little sugar and oil - thanks to my friend silken tofu. 😊

During my morning coffee skype session with my fellow green smoothie lover & lovely friend Anina @aniahimsa I realized it's been forever since I had a good old smoothie bowl. 💚 So that's exactly what I prepared for myself afterwards. It's made with gorgeous #dinosaurkale from a local farmer which I got at my first @foodassembly_de at @diderot_kultur.essen. Looking forward to working with all the yummy leafy greens, radicchio & beets I got there over this weekend.

Ingredients: 3 dino kale leaves, 1 pear, 1 tart apple, 1 banana, homemade almond milk to blend

Toppings: figs, apple slices, walnuts from home, my first pomegranate of the season, bee pollen, puffed quinoa

In the spirit of #pumpkineverything I'm continuing with a yummy breakfast bowl filled with homemade pumpkin spice granola served on homemade coconut vanilla yogurt, fresh figs, raspberries and blueberries, drizzled with almond butter and sprinkled with puffed amaranth, hemp hearts & cacao nibs. Simple, quickly thrown together and oh so satisfying!

In case you haven't seen my latest stories go check them out before they disappear if you like 🙂 - I visited the "Next Organic" fair here in Berlin yesterday and attended a workshop by @niko_rittenau and @borislauser. It was very inspiring and I'll be writing a lot more about it in a new blog entry over the weekend.

Bringing my pumpkin spice granola (recipe on the blog soon) to lovely Dee's @greensmoothiegourmet and Rachel's @rachels.fit.kitchen #FallPumpkinParty. I couldn't have chosen a better theme myself. Thank you girls for inspiring us all with this lovely party! 🎃🍁🍂🍃

As mentioned before I've been really busy working on some delicious pumpkin recipes for you - like this pumpkin hummus right here! 💛 Have you guys arrived in #pumpkineverything land yet? 😊 I seriously can't get enough of these delicious little creatures - hokkaido, butternut, spaghetti squash -  which ones are your favorites? I'm a big fan of hokkaido (some of you may know them as kuri squash) since they grow in our family garden and you don't have to peel them. I usually bake them with no oil or spices, then blend them and keep the pumpkin puree in the fridge/freezer for baking, breakfast bowls, pasta sauce or dips like this hummus. So here we go:

Recipe: approx. 250g cooked chickpeas (rinsed & drained), 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, 1 crushed garlic clove, 2 tbsp tahini, 1/2 tsp miso salt flakes, 1/2 tsp of your favourite curry powder, 2 tbsp pumpkin seed oil --> blend chickpeas, pumpkin puree & garlic until smooth. Then add remaining ingredients and combine.

I served mine on pumpkin seed bread drizzled with more organic pumpkin seed oil, sprinkled with dried barberries and fresh coriander. Soooo good... In case you're not big on curry use another spice mix you like - I highly recommend ras el hanout, baharat or za'atar.

Since the lovely Klara @klaraslife and @laurafruitfairy are hosting a lovely #AutumnFoodParty I thought I'd bring my pumpkin hummus along to share with everyone. Enjoy!

Throwback to this sour cherry pie from last year which I made with homegrown produce. Somehow I missed sour cherry season this year... However, I did some autumn baking on Friday - just didn't have a chance to photograph my pumpkin guglhupf with cinnamon walnut swirl yet - will post it soon. Promise! Also got lots of other pumpkin recipes coming up here and on the blog which I have been working on thoroughly. I'll let you know as soon as all the changes go live.

Right now I'm getting ready to leave for @greenmarketberlin today - one of my favourite markets to discover new ethical & sustainable producers, indulge in vegan street food and, of course, get my fair share of sweet treats. 😊 I'll be writing a blog post about the market this time but feel free to join me in my stories this afternoon and go on exploration tour with me. Have a lovely Sunday everyone! Much love, Caro

Summer is definitely coming to an end - luckily that means lots of produce from the family garden for me. 🌱🙏 I came back to Berlin with yummy tomatoes, hokkaido pumpkins, potatoes, walnuts, plums, parsnips, onions etc. - can't wait to get cooking!

While this is an older picture it definitely shows my favourite way of enjoying homegrown tomatoes (besides eating them fresh sprinkled with just a pinch of high quality sea salt, of course 😉): slowly roasting them in the oven with olive oil, garlic & Mediterranean herbs! I either use them for pasta dishes or blend them into a delicious soup. It really doesn't get much better than this. ❤🍅❤ So much #umami!
