Tiramisu is good as a Sunday dessert, but you can definitely not eat it for breakfast every morning. Still, it would be so nice to start the day with a coffee-flavored dessert!
However, there is an alternative that is not only creamy and faster, but even helps replenish really important nutrients. Here is the recipe that gourmands absolutely must try for breakfast.
A good idea to save leftover coffee
If there is a cup of coffee left over at the end of the day, it is a real shame to throw it away. In fact, there is more than one ingenious trick to storing coffee and enjoying it for the next few days. Candy lovers in particular can take advantage of leftover coffee as an ingredient in a breakfast prepared in 5 minutes the night before. The great thing about this recipe is that even though it is sweet and tasty, it is still beneficial for the body. In short, not the usual tiramisu, this creamy dessert contains two healthy ingredients.
The first is coffee, a beverage that is often demonized but which can actually have positive and unexpected effects. The second ingredient is chia seeds: but why are they good?
As experts explain, chia seeds contain omega 3 and omega 6 in proportions that are perfect for the body’s health. They are therefore an excellent solution to replenish with fatty acids. In addition, chia seeds are rich in fiber and substances with antioxidant properties (ferulic acid, quercetin and caffeic acid). So let’s find out how to use them to prepare breakfast.
