Greek Yogurt Tiramisu
A healthy gluten free tiramisu recipe, made with homemade lady fingers, and layers of creamy greek yogurt filling. Add berries to each layer for a fun summery dessert, or keep it classic like I have here.
- 2 1/2 cups greek yogurt*
- 9 ounces marscapone cheese
- 3 tablespoons honey
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1 ounce 85% dark chocolate shaved
- 3-4 tablespoons Kahlua
- 3 teaspoons cocoa powder
- 1 1/2 teaspoons cinnamon
Preheat over to 320º F.
Mix the wet ingredients together in a small bowl along with the baking soda. Mix well to combine.
Add the coconut flour and almond flour, mixing well until there are no clumps remaining. Do not worry about overstirring.
Allow the mixture to sit for 5 minutes. The coconut flour is very absorbent, and the batter should thicken up considerably. If after 5 minutes the batter doesn't seem thick enough to pipe into lady fingers, add another tablespoon of coconut flour, mix well, and allow to sit another 5 minutes to thicken.
Add the thickened batter to a plastic ziplock bag (or pastry bag). Cut a 1/2 inch slit in one corner, and pipe 2 1/2 inch long strips. Leave space between each one; the batter rises and spreads.
Bake for 10 minutes. Let cool.
Add the greek yogurt, marscapone cheese, honey and vanilla to a food processor bowl, and process for 30-45 seconds, until mixture is very smooth. This can also be done by hand.
Put Kahlua in a small bowl, then dip cooled lady fingers in, soaking the bottom half of each one. Arrange soaked lady fingers along the bottom of a 8×8 baking dish. Cover the lady fingers with 1 cup of yogurt mixture, 1 teaspoon cocoa powder, 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon powder, and 1 tablespoon chopped dark chocolate.
Repeat for 2 more layers.
Refrigerate to set. For pretty, well-set slices, it’s best to let it set overnight.
*Store bought lady fingers can be substituted.
**Greek yogurt must be very thick. If your yogurt isn’t super thick, put 2 paper towels on the bottom of a strainer, and add yogurt. Place the strainer into a bowl to catch the whey. Leave in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours, until the excess liquid has drained out of your yogurt. I often use this method with regular yogurt when greek yogurt is not available.
Other liqueurs/spices can be substituted. I recently saw photos of tiramisu’s made with cherries, strawberries, etc., and I think next time I make this it will be a fruity variety!
