Sikwate/Hot Cocoa Drink

Sikwate is a Filipino drink made with cocoa tablets, water and brown sugar. I used to drink this a lot when I was a kid and it’s perfect with fried bananas. I can’t find the kind of bananas we use for cooking back home here in Switzerland but the sikwate alone can still be enjoyed. I made this sikwate with plant milk which is even more delicious than the original sikwate.

I bought my cacao tablets from the Philippines but you can also use cacao powder since it’s difficult to find these tablets in Europe.

Happy Falafel Bowl

I’m so happy that I found pre made Falafels at our local grocery store. You can also make it from scratch (will try to make one soon) but if you can find it at your supermarket then you can make a falafel bowl like I did! It was so unbelievably delicious and was very easy to make.

Vegan Travels-Mom’s Table in Augsburg, Germany

One of the things that really excite us in our travels is finding vegan restaurants we can explore. We recently went to Bavaria, Germany and found one that we loved! If you plan to visit the Bavarian region of Germany you must try Mom’s Table Organic Vegan Restaurant. Located in the city center of Augsburg, on Maximilian Strasse. Their food is bio, organic, gluten free and sugar free too! We ordered a few different things like the Superfood Salad, Falafel Chia Wrap, Buddha Bowl and Dal Soup.
