Tiramisu is one of those desserts I never thought I could clean up and make lighter and healthier. Well, I was definitely wrong. Sure, the lady fingers are still made with white flour, but I cut corners in other ways — this recipe has no dairy! It’s a vegan, light way to enjoy tiramisu.

Ingredients

10-16 ladyfingers
1 cup coffee, cooled
1 tablespoon bourbon (optional)
15 oz can coconut milk, chilled
1 tablespoon agave nectar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Fresh mint and cinnamon for garnish

Instructions

Open the canned coconut and scoop out the hardened part, leaving the watery part of the canned coconut behind. In a bowl, whisk the coconut milk with the agave and vanilla.

In a low-rise dish, pour up to one cup of the coffee until it rises about 1/2-inch up in height.

Place the lady fingers in the coffee for 15 seconds on both sides.

In a separate dish, layer half the lady fingers on the bottom, topped with a layer of the coconut cream, another layer of the rest of the lady fingers and then finished off with the cream.

Garnish with mint and cinnamon and serve.

Bon Appetit!

    Those in the recipe look like the REAL ladyfingers which are made with eggs. I have never found vegan ladyfingers, if these are please share the brand!
