PROTEIN TIRAMISU 🥺 Only 312kcal for this HUGE serving 🥵 26.5g PROTEIN in this sucker too 👀 * Recipe ⬇️ below! * Now, first things first.. DON’T soak the biscuits for too long! A quick dunk will be fine. If you soak them too much they’ll be WAY too mushy to use.. like mine. 😂 * Now that we’ve been over that, sorry this isn’t presented the best. As I said, don’t soak the biscuits for too long or they’ll end up looking like mine. 😂 Also if you don’t like the taste of strong coffee, I’d suggest putting some sweetener in the coffee before you dunk the biscuits, to give it a bit of extra sweetness! * As per usual guys if you give this a go, please send a tag my way! I love seeing the recreations and this one would be no different. Also I’m sure it’ll be better than mine. 😂 * Also to put that serving size into perspective, it’s 1/4 of the size of a loaf tin 😳 massive! * Protein Tiramisu * Ingredients: 600g Low Fat Greek Yoghurt 45g @myproteinau Vanilla Whey 30g Stevia (or 2Tbs Sweetener) 5g Cocoa Powder 4g Cinnamon 21 Lady Finger Biscuits 250ml Coffee * Method: 1. Add greek yogurt, protein, vanilla and sweetener to a bowl and combine. 2. One at a time, slightly soak 7 of the lady finger biscuits in coffee and lay them down in a loaf tray. 3. Top the biscuits with 1/3 of greek yogurt mixture, 1 tsp ground cinnamon and 1 tsp cocoa powder. 4. Repeat the process again, exactly the same. 5. Repeat the process once more, and top the final layer of greek yogurt with shaved dark chocolate (if you want to!) and a sprinkle of cocoa powder. 6. Place in the refrigerator overnight to fully set. 7. Slice that bad boi into 4 and smack ‘em all down. 🥴 * Cals for Entire Batch: 1251kcal 174C 106P 11F * Cals Per Serve: 312kcal 43.5C 26.5P 3F
