Raw & Vegan Tiramisu

Bring us all the tiramisu!

Hello friends!!!

I know it feels like FOREVER since I last posted a recipe for you all! I have been so incredibly occupied these days and unfortunately, was on a roller coaster of a ride in the month of December. Finally, after what felt like a never-ending nightmare, I am back-in-action, and can once again be 100% committed to maintaining my blog! YAY me! 🙂

I don’t know about all of you but I am NOT  a coffee drinker at all. I find that it intensifies my anxiety symptoms and causes me to bounce off the wall with hyperactivity. You see, I have a naturally hyper personality which most of the time, needs toning down. However, I do enjoy the taste of coffee and find myself craving it from time-to-time. Now tea on the other hand is a different story! I am pretty sure I drink more than I should on a regular basis but being Middle Eastern, that’s quite expected and normal :).

I love enjoying desserts with my tea and am always looking for new things to make at home. Recently, I wanted to try my hand at making tiramisu…not the healthy kind that I am going to share with you now but the traditional kind–you know, the one that uses heavy cream and lady fingers. However, given the fact that I pretty much ate my weight in food over the holidays, I decided I needed to tone it down and go healthy instead.

This was one of those rare occasions that I craved coffee so I figured, why not add it a healthy dessert the whole family can enjoy? Brilliant. I have to admit, although you can taste the coffee, it isn’t as strong as I would have liked. I think in the future, I would probably use instant coffee for a more intense flavor. But for now, feel free to use this recipe and tweak it to your liking!

Let me know what you think by leaving me a comment below! XOXO

Raw & Vegan Tiramisu

Ingredients

  • Crust:
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup walnuts
  • 2 tablespoons fresh brewed coffee (cooled)
  • Ladyfingers:
  • 1 cup almond flour
  • 1 cup dates
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons freshly brewed coffee (cooled)
  • Pinch of salt
  • Cream:
  • 2 cups cashews
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1 tbs confectioners sugar
  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1-2 cups of water (less if you want a thicker cream)
  • 3 teaspoons tapioca starch (to thicken the cream if desired)

Instructions

  1. Prepare the crust by combining the crust ingredients into a food processor and pulsing until mixture forms into a dough-like ball. Press evenly into an 8 x 8 brownie tin and place in freezer.
  2. To make the ladyfingers: Add all ingredients into food processor until a dough forms. Shape into lady finger cookies and place in oven or toaster oven at lowest temperature for 20-25 minutes (Please note that this step is optional).
  3. To make the cream: Combine all ingredients for the cream and blend to a smooth, creamy consistency. Start adding water slowly and add anywhere from 1-2 cups depending on your desired level of consistency. If mixture too runny, add more tapioca. Pour half of mixture directly on the crust, layer with the lady fingers, and then pour the remaining cream on top.
  4. Place in freezer for 5-8 hours or until cream is completely hardened. When ready to serve, dust top with raw cacao powder and slice as desired. Top with coffee beans for decorative purposes.
  5. *Note, this dessert tastes better when slightly thawed but stores better in the freezer. When ready to eat, remove from freezer at least 10 minutes before serving for best results/taste.
  6. Enjoy!

    I’m one of those who can’t live without coffee and this recipe is perfect for me. Although I’m not really good in the kitchen but will give this a try or probably ask my sister to do this for me. 🙂 It seems easy to make.

    Thanks for sharing this recipe. I haven’t tried yet this raw and vegan tiramisu but I’ve made one similar before, but it’s made of crackers with some cream and mangoes on it and it taste so delicious. Btw, I’m gonna try this recipe of yours. thanks again

    Wow! Tiramisu is one of my fave desserts but I always feel guilty after eating it because it’s loaded with sugar and calories. I am so glad I found this healthy alternative.
