This Tiramisù has the perfect ratio of Ladyfingers:Mascarpone Cream Filling.  And the hint of coffee and rum?  Oh yeah, that makes this dessert about 372,001x better  😉

Did I even mention that this recipe is 100% homemade, from the Ladyfingers to the mascarpone cream filling?

Oh yeah x 100.

My taste testers said this was my, and I quote, “BEST DESSERT YET!”

The pastry cream filling is rich and flavorful, the soft ladyfingers add texture and a unique quality to the dish overall.  The generous dusting of cocoa powder just gives this dessert life.  The cocoa adds warmth and provides the dish with a nice balance to finish it all off.

So slice a big hunk of this Tiramisù onto a plate and share with a couple of your favorite peeps.  I know, it’s tough, you’ll want to keep this all to yourself, but sharing is caring!

For one slice at least, after that, hoard it all for yourself.  That’s what I did and I regret it 0%  😉

A healthy Tiramisù recipe?  I know it’s hard to believe, I don’t think those two words have ever been in the same sentence before today.  I’ll prove it here with the recipe:

12 servings

Healthy Tiramisù

Prep Time: 45 minutes

Cook Time: 15 minutes

Total Time: 1 hour

Fat per serving: 11

Calories per serving: 210

Ingredients:

Pastry Cream:
Ladyfinger Layers:
Topping:
  • 3 tbs Unsweetened Dutch Processed Cocoa Powder

Directions:

For the Pastry Cream:
  1. In a metal bowl placed over a saucepan of an inch of simmering water, whisk together the egg yolks, powdered erythritol, and vanilla paste.  Whisk constantly until thickened.  When you can draw a number 8 with the thickened mixture, it’s ready. DO NOT overcook!
  2. Remove from the heat and let cool for 30 minutes.
  3. Whisk in the mascarpone, then whisk in the yogurt.
Assembly:
  1. Line a 9×5″ loaf pan with two layers of plastic wrap so that there is an overhang.  Make sure to press the plastic into the pan so that the entire pan is coated.
  2. In a shallow dish, add the espresso and rum.  Dunk both sides of a ladyfinger in the mixture (don’t let it soak too long otherwise they’ll absorb too much and get mushy or even disintegrate) and place it inside the loaf pan.  Do this until you have an entire layer of ladyfingers.
  3. Scoop ⅓ of the mascarpone filling over the ladyfingers and spread it out.
  4. Dunk the ladyfingers in the espresso/rum mixture and line them over the mascarpone filling.
  5. Repeat twice, then top it off with a final layer of dunked ladyfingers.  Tightly cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate overnight.
  6. Remove the plastic wrap and flip the loaf pan onto a serving dish.  Gently remove the loaf pan and carefully peel the plastic wrap off the Tiramisu.  Dust with the cocoa powder, then slice and serve!

Notes:

**I needed 6 ladyfingers per layer, but you may need more or less depending on how thin/thick you pipe out your ladyfingers!

  1. Could I use stevia instead of the extract?

    • dessertswithbenefits

      Helen, did you mean powdered stevia instead of liquid stevia? If so, I’m sure you can however I have never used powdered stevia 🙂

  11. Hi, just wanted to tell you, I loved this post. It was inspiring.
    Keep on posting!

  12. Hi, recipe sounds great!Wondering if its possible to substitute cream cheese for the Mascarpone Cheese?

    • Tara-
      Cream cheese will work in place of the mascarpone, the filling just won’t have the same flavor. You may need to add ~10-20 more drops of the stevia extract because mascarpone is slightly sweet. Hope you like the Tiramisu!!

    This is just WOW! I think even in Italy i didn’t tried a tiramisu so tasty! And of course it‘s much healthier! I ran out of almond milk, so i used regular one and substituted tapioca flour for corn starch. Also i used mascarpone:cream cheese at ratio 1:1. And it was still tasty and so good! Thank you a lot!

  25. It’s not even working!!! the cream is a scam, you told us that we can use stevia instead and I keep stirring the eggs with stevia and vanilla and nothing it’s happening!!! It’s not thickened, it’s so liquid because of the eggs. Because of your stupid suggestion, I’ve destroyed the ladyfingers and made everything for nothing. You know nothing about cooking!

    • I’ve made this recipe numerous times, and so have my readers, without any issues. You need to cook the egg mixture until it’s thickened BEFORE mixing in the mascarpone and yogurt, and BEFORE spreading it over the ladyfingers. If it’s a pure liquid, obviously something is wrong and you shouldn’t pour it over the ladyfingers.
      Did you make any ingredient substitutes or omit any ingredients?
      And did you cook the egg mixture long enough?
