Vegan Protein-Packed Tiramisu


I'm incredibly happy to announce that i'll be one the bloggers to create recipes for the upcoming website of my favorite protein powder brand Nutrition Plus Germany! It's been a rough year for me, my Instagram and the Blog but getting opportunities like this one really pushes me to keep going, creating and not to give up on things I love: Creating yummy vegan food, drinking green smoothies in cute Cafés and saving the world just a tiny little bit.

However, let's talk coffee. I drink it in the morning, sipping that steaming cup of black gold while I plan my day and listen to relaxing tunes. I drink it during class to keep my head up and sharp in statistics, I drink it on coffee dates with my girls and I drink whenever I like it. You feel me? Don't get me wrong, my main source of liquid is still water ;)



So why not eat the coffee? Tiramisu does not have the best reputation in terms of being healthy, low in calories and high in protein but I decided to change that. And it turned out amazing, let me tell you! I added two lotus biscuits at the end for decoration purposes but this is totally optional and I excluded those from my calculation, but feel free to top your tiramisu with whatever you like!
