Modelweekend with Evie, Melody and Fabienne


Yoghurt Barn Haarlem

It was high time to have a model-weekend! The ModelsLoveFood-crew decided to catch up and do what they love most: cooking! OK, and eating… In this post we will share with you what we cooked, ate and drunk. Everything that made our model-weekend absolutely perfect!

We decided to meet each other in Haarlem at the Yogurt Barn. This cute place has been opened for two weeks and is already booming! It was really crowded inside, with people having lunch, eating a snack or even enjoying a high tea. We were helped by a sweet ‘barnista’ (a yogurt barista) and ordered the following yogurts and drinks… 

  • Soy yoghurt with granola, dates, blueberries, coconut and almonds
  • Soy yogurt with granola, dates, blueberries, goji berries and pistachio nuts
  • Goat yoghurt with dates, figs, raspberries and raspberry syrup
  • Chai tea latte
  • Mint tea

What is so nice about this place is that you can make your yoghurt as healthy or as sinful as you want. They have fruit, nuts and seeds, but also cookie crumble, brownies and chocolate. Sounds delicious, right? It is also possible to blend your yoghurt into a yogurt drink or just have a cup of coffee with a croissant.

But… There is more! They serve sugar free, diary free and gluten free cakes from Sharp Sharp! Perfect as a 4-o’clock snack, so we decided to buy three cakes to share.


We had matcha no-cheesecake, choco coco and blueberry orange. SO. GOOD.
So if you are visiting Haarlem, make sure you head over to the Yoghurt Barn. You will not regret it!

Time to cook!
During our lunch at the Yoghurt Barn, we decided to make falafel for dinner. This dish is suitable for vegetarians. Below you will find the recipe for how to make these awesome falafel balls.
Ingredients (serves around 14 balls)
285 g canned chickpeas
1 egg
1 onion
1 clove of garlic
Juice of half a lemon
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp turmeric or laos
1 tsp curry
1 tsp cayenne pepper
1 tsp black pepper
1 tsp Himalayan salt (optional)
Coriander or parsley (optional)
2 tbsp coconut oil
Slice the onion and the garlic. Put all the ingredients, except for the coconut oil, in your food processor and pulse until it becomes a smooth dough. Now it is time to roll the balls! Make sure you make your hands wet before you start rolling. Once you are done, heat the coconut oil in a pan. Bake the falafel balls until they become golden brown. That’s it!
We would like to thank Rens Kroes for the inspiration! 
But falafel would not be complete without any side dishes! Below you will find which one we made…
– Sweet potato fries (you can find the recipe on our Instagram account @modelslovefood)
– Quinoa with beetroot, feta cheese and mint
– Avocado
– Tomato salsa (cut 4 tomatoes in little cubes, add ½ clove of garlic, ½ onion, some parsley and a drizzle of olive oil)
– Lettuce (substitution for the common wraps or pita bread)

After eating the delicious falafel, it was time to make ourselves ready for a night out at HOME in Noordwijk! Woehoe!
Our modelweekend would not be a modelweekend without a serious, healthy breakfast! Melody came up with a super delicious peanut sauce, which you can add to your oatmeal, your yogurt or in our case put on your banana pancakes! We shared the recipe of the ModelsLoveFood peanut sauce and the buckwheat-banana pancakes on our Instagram, so make sure you check it out .
