I didn’t think it was possibly to create such an incredibly delicious dessert with no dairy products… My mini me twin is vegan so we decided to give this recipe from Veggy Wood a try. We only ate half the pan in the first sitting, sooo I guess it turned out okay. The recipe looks super long and intimidating, but don’t worry. It’s not difficult at all. Purchasing lady fingers cuts out a lot of the prep time.
So, tiramisu is, hands down, one of my top 5 favorite desserts of all time. I am uncertain on the other 4 right now, but tiramisu it definitely up there. Traditional recipes call for full fat mascarpone cheese and egg yolks. This healthier version uses reduced fat cream cheese, cool whip and only includes egg whites. This recipe super simple and quick to make. The hardest part is waiting 2 hours for it to set in the refrigerator Waiting to eat it might be worse than Chinese water torture.
