Festive Greek Yogurt and Spirulina Mini Cakes

November 14, 2023 - By Nautilus Plus

Temps de lecture 2 minutes

The Ultime Fit platform powered by Nautilus Plus celebrates its 5th anniversary! Yes, it’s already been 5 years since the launch of this great online training and nutrition platform. What better way to celebrate than with a colorful birthday cake! Here’s a recipe for mini festive cakes with Greek yogurt and spirulina. It’s the spirulina that gives the mini cakes its lovely blue-green color. You can enjoy it as a dessert or a snack. One thing’s for sure: you’ll be very satisfied!

Where can I find spirulina? In powder form, packaged in plastic bags or containers, you’ll find it in the health food corner or supplement aisle of most grocery stores.
