Nutritional values

The summery dessert scores points with a lot of protein and a minimum fat content per portion - so you can enjoy it without regrets, even though you already consume half the daily requirement of vitamin C. The vitamin helps to tighten the connective tissue and improve stress management.

You can also prepare the dessert without gelatine. An alternative is Agar Agar, which is a gelling agent made from algae. You can find this product on the baking shelf in well-assorted supermarkets and organic food stores. Dosage and use can be found in the package instructions.
