{Recipe} Creamy Overnight Oats – With Banana and Peanut Flavor

This recipe for creamy overnight oats is one of my current breakfast favorites. I really love how easy it is to make and that it can be prepared ahead. So in the morning you only have to take out your oats out of the fridge and add the topping.

This oats are flavored with peanut butter, bananas and coconut shreds which is an unusual combination but tastes really delicious. And the pomegranate seeds on top add a fruity taste and crunchy texture.IMG_8757

{Restaurant} Helvetia – Homemade Food

The restaurant Helvetia is my absolute favorite in the Galata neighborhood for healthy homemade Turkish food. It is a small restaurant with only a few tables. They have a big choice of tasty dishes with many vegetarian and vegan options. The atmosphere is relaxed and quiet, because it is located in a back street.

{Update} Back in Istanbul

Hey everyone,

I am back in Istanbul and back at writing on my Blog! I moved back to Istanbul and after time to get settled I’m excited to write about my new favorite restaurants, cafes and recipes again. But I’m also planning on writing articles in new categories that include travel tips for Istanbul, general tips for vegetarians and vegans visiting Istanbul and many more ideas. I already planned and prepared some blogposts and hope you will enjoy them.

And for the ones who don’t know how all this started here a little recap: I started my Blog in October 2014 when I started my Erasmus exchange program in Istanbul. I lived in Istanbul for about one year and on my Blog I shared my experiences, new recipes I learned and new places I discovered. Now almost four years later I’m glad to be back.

Stay tuned for more to come, I hope you’ll stop by again.

{Recipe} Berry & Chocolate Banana Ice Cream

My two versions Banana Ice Cream Recipe are perfect for hot summer days, you can either have it as a breakfast, dessert or snack. “Ice cream for breakfast? isn’t it unhealthy?” I hear you saying. The answer is no! This two ice cream recipes are industrial sugar and dairy-free since the main ingredients are fruits. You need only a few ingredients and the preparation is quite easy if you have a powerful blender (I’m using this one from Philips*). As a result you have a colorful, healthy and refreshing ice cream.

Among many varieties of banana ice cream my favorite ones are the versions with berry & chocolate. For inspirations you can check Lulu’s Instagram account. She shares new recipes every day. You can be creative with the toppings, you can use anything and make your ice cream bowl even more beautiful.
