SkinnyCook’s Protein Tiramisu

f0ad4978-95d9-4e05-a52e-fe2587546346This protein dessert is so amazing, easy to make and delicious that the only issue with it is that I feel very guilty eating it when I am on strict low-carb…I just still cannot believe something can be this sinless and packed of protein and so tasty at the same time! I guess it will take time to accept it..but for now let me eat another one…

 

 

 

Just see these :

The whole Base macros amounts to:

132g Proteins; 15g Fats; 58g Carbs (904 kcal if you need to know..though you don’t)

And Topping (if used 400g of quark and 1 scoop of protein):

16g Carbs; 59g Protein; (320 kcal)

Therefore, if you make 6 quite big tiramisu-s, Each of them will be:

204 Kcal; 12 Carb; 2.5 Fat and 81g of Protein (!!!)

I’ve literally just checked prot. twice…this is so unbelievable, I think I’ve already reached my 110g of proteins goal for the day..and it’s only 10 am.

N/B All calculations are approximate and based of the brands/ingredients I personally used. In any case your cooked cake will not go far from these. I also must say that calculating macros I realised that most Carb&Fat and Kcal in the base come from coconut flour, thus I will try replace it in the future with something even more sinless.Any ideas?

Base

1 cup egg whites

1 cup low fat soft cottage cheese

1/2 cup whey protein powder

2 tbsp cocoa powder

6 tbsp coconut flour

1 tsp baking powder

1-3 drops of Rum flavour  (or of your choice)

Topping 

Quark

Protein powder

Cocoa or Protein powder for dusting

Coffee

 

  1. Preheat oven to 175C
  2. Mix well all the Base ingredients in a blender
  3. Pour base mixture into a cake pan and bake for 12-16 mins until ready
  4. Cool the cake down and cut into pieces; alternatively you can just use a spoon to place base into cups. All depends on a plating you imagine for your Tiramisu
  5. Make a shot of espresso and add few teaspoons for each Tiramisu base to soak
  6. Mix the Topping: Depending on how you like it, find your proportion of Quark and Protein powder. I tried vanilla, white chocolate powder and even banana protein mousse powder – all worked well, so you your imagination. Vanilla, of course, would be a classical Tiramisu.
  7. Top the Base(with coffee soaked) cake with the topping.
  8. Dust on top cocoa or even chocolate protein powder!

Leave in a fridge to settle and Enjoy!569e472a-34ac-48ab-b63f-94c20d5f88f2
