Tiramisu Shakeology SmoothieOne of my fave desserts is tiramisu and my favorite place to get it is Amerigo’s, an Italian restaurant here in Nashville.

“Tiramisu” is the Italian word for “little pick-me-up.” However, if you have ever had the dessert before you know it’s definitely something you only treat yourself to once in a while because it a definite “weigh-you-down” loaded with sugar and wasted calories.

I have great news though! I have found away to have it everyday as a little pick-me-up that is loaded with nutrition you will never find in the traditional dessert. OMGosh!!! Try this tiramisu-flavored smoothie!
