Spring is just around the corner​
With spring cleaning and spring recipes from Klarstein

When will spring arrive? It's just around the corner! Spring, the best time of the year, when trees, flowers and our spirits finally begin to perk up, starts on 20 March. The days get longer, we start to think about spending more time outdoors and we also look forward to delicious treats that put us in the mood for spring. Motivated by nature and the promise of delicious food, we can focus on our annual spring clean. We show you how to get your home sparkling clean in an instant and give you recipes to treat yourself with afterwards!

Spring smoothies​

Whether you want to detox, lose weight or just treat yourself to a few home-made vitamin boosters in time for the start of spring, smoothies are true all-rounders. Super easy to tweak to your individual tastes or needs, our spring favourites this year are perfect for sweet snacks or as a meal replacement.


Wash the ingredients for the following smoothie ideas and mix them thoroughly. Our Klarstein food processors and juicers can help you with this because they puree and blend all the ingredients into a homogeneous, easy to drink smoothie – at the touch of a button. Important: Demeter certified fruit and vegetables from the organic shop or straight from the farm contain the most vitamins. It's worth spending an extra bit of money! ​​

The kale-pineapple blend supports natural detoxification, boosts your digestion and, as a nutrient and fibre rich breakfast, it's perfect for a quick and healthy start to the day.

The strawberry-spinach blend is a real energy booster and contains high concentrations of vital substances and vitamins that help with your mental and physical fitness. So, say "goodbye" to your afternoon coffee and "hello" to a power drink!

Fresh lemon cake with decoration: for an indulgent springtime treat​

Lemon cake

Ingredients to make 4 portions ​

Cake dough:

  • 2 tbsp. oil
  • 250 g soft butter
  • 200 g sugar
  • 1 pack vanilla sugar
  • zest of one organic lemon
  • 1 pinch of salt
  • 4 eggs
  • 200 g flour
  • 50 g cornflour
  • 1 tsp. baking powder


  • 200 g icing sugar
  • 3 tbsp. lemon juice from the organic lemon
  • lemon slices for decoration almond flakes

Lemon cake​

Method: ​

Pre-heat your Klarstein oven to 150 °C fan. Now stir all of the dough ingredients into a homogeneous mixture. Our Klarstein food processors can do the mixing at the touch of a button.

In the meantime, use oil to grease an approx. 25 cm loaf tin. Then pour the mixture into the tin, smooth it out and bake it in the oven for 50 minutes. Make sure that the cake doesn't get too dark.

Once it has baked thoroughly, leave it to cool in the tin for around 15 minutes, empty it into the cooling tray and pierce it several times before drizzling with lemon juice. This lets the lemon flavour seep into the dough. For the glaze, mix icing sugar with 3 tbsp lemon juice.

Here's a little tip: our food processors can help here too with their beaters because you can use them to mix the glaze quickly and easily, with no lumps.

Spread the glaze on the cake once it has cooled down. You can easily press almond flakes, grated lemon zest and a few lemon slices into the glaze and decorate it in your own design. Hello spring!

Delicious for the start of spring!​

Asparagus risotto

Ingredients for 4 portions:

  • 250 g risotto rice
  • 400 g asparagus (green)
  • 800 ml asparagus stock (or asparagus water)
  • 1 onion
  • 40 g butter
  • salt, pepper
  • 1 dash of olive oil
  • 1 dash of white wine
  • 80 g parmesan

Asparagus risotto​


Peel the asparagus and chop off the woody ends. You can find the right tool for the job with our Klarstein knife sets. Boil the tips in salted water until al dente. Carefully remove the pieces of asparagus from the asparagus water and rinse them with cold water. Important: keep the asparagus water. Chop the boiled asparagus into medium-sized pieces.

Then finely dice the onion, put some olive oil into our Klarstein pans and quickly brown the onions. Add the rice, fry it for a short time, pour on the asparagus water and a splash of white wine and let the rice simmer until it is al-dente. Talking of white wine, we recommend Weißburgunder, Chardonnay or Neuburger to support rather than overpower the fine aroma of the asparagus. Stir the mixture and season to taste. Then, add the asparagus slices, fold in butter and parmesan and serve this delicious dish while still warm in a warm plate or bowl. You can use any leftover asparagus as a garnish. Mmmmmh!

Our tip: enjoy the open white wine with your dinner. White wine goes best with risotto. Then you can store it perfectly chilled in one of our Klarstein wine refrigerators – or even open the next bottle if there's something to celebrate. Cheers!​​​​
