Light Tiramisu

List of needed ingredients:

3 tbsp of strongly brewed cold espresso coffee
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 tbsp of brandy or rum
1/3 cup of vanilla sugar
2 egg whites
8 ounces of softened reduced-fat cream cheese
½ cup of plain yogurt
18 ladyfingers
2 ounces of grated dark chocolate

Preparation instructions:

You will want to mix together the coffee, vanilla, and brandy or rum in a bowl. Take out a second bowl and beat the sugar and cream cheese. Take out a third bowl and whisk the yogurt until it holds its shape and then fold it into the cream cheese mixture. Use a clean bowl and whisk the egg whites until it forms soft peaks. Now you will fold the egg whites into the cream cheese and yogurt mixtures. Now break half of the ladyfingers into small pieces and put them into the bottom of 6 glasses. Drizzle half of your coffee mixture onto the ladyfingers that are in the glasses. Spoon half of the cream mixture on and then sprinkle half of the grated chocolate onto the top. Once you have completed all of these steps, then you are going to repeat the process over again and finish by sprinkling on the remaining grated chocolate. The final step will be for you to put the dish into the refrigerator to chill for about 24 hours. Once it is chilled, it will be ready for you to serve. This is a great tasting dessert that doesn’t taste like it would be low in calories. You will feel as if you are eating a regular dessert even though this recipe is actually a low calorie dessert.

  1. I absolutely love Tiramisu but a hardly ever dare to eat it because of the worry of it being so calorific.So I am very pleased,to say the least, to find a light version which I wil try very soon.
