Recipes That Make It Easy to Consume Coffee All Day

5-Minute Healthy Tiramisu with Raspberries

1 of 8

All photos

This tiramisu is ready in just five minutes! It's packed with 7g of fiber and 8g of protein to keep you satisfied and prevent the post-dessert crash you'll get with other desserts.

I lightened up traditional tiramisu by swapping out mascarpone cheese, whipped cream, and egg yolks for low-fat Greek yogurt and almond milk. You can also reduce the sugar and refined carbs by using whole-grain, low-sugar cookies (like these great cookie recipes). If you want this recipe to be gluten-free, use your favorite gluten-free cookies. Did I mention it's coated in dark chocolate shavings? This could be love.

This chili is a satisfying vegetarian meal you can pair with corn tortillas for delicious enchiladas, a perfect twist on a classic chili. Not only does it have richness and antioxidants thanks to the coffee, it also contains cocoa for some extra goodness. Coffee and chocolate for lunch? This dietitian says !

Order Up... Acne Treatments

One of the most annoying things about dealing with sensitive or acne-prone skin is all the trial and error it takes to find a skin-care solution that works. But Curology ($20 a month, curology.com) lets you skip that step. Simply take a quick questionnaire about your medical history, skin-care goals, and current regimen, snap some photos of your skin and upload them to the app, and get a prescription skin treatment customized for you by a derm. It'll be shipped to your front door, with refills sent every three months. As you use it the app lets you keep track of your progress so you and your doc can fine-tune the cream as needed—you get unlimited online consultations.

Order Up... Contact Lenses

Hitting the bottom of your contact lens box on a day you really don't want to resort to your backup glasses is always frustrating. (One of the things I learned when I got contacts as an adult.) And avoidable, thanks to services like Hubble ($30 a month or $264 a year, hubblecontacts.com). All you need to subscribe to the service, which claims its lenses are half the price of competitors, is a prescription. Another plus: The first box is free.

Order Up... Tampons

When you're already feeling crampy or bloated, the last thing you want to do is head to the drugstore for a box of tampons or pads. That's why we're thanking our lucky stars for LOLA (from $9, mylola.com). First, choose between tampons (with or without applicators), pads, and liners. Then, pick the combo that works for you—do you want three light tampons, 12 regulars, and two supers, and one super+? Done. Then pick how often you want them sent to your door. Easy! Even better, everything is made from 100 percent organic cotton.
