How to: Make a Strawberry Tiramisu

Tiramisu, or "pick me up" is the royal dessert for any meal and one of my favorite desserts! After attempting the alcoholic version, I wanted to try out the non-alcoholic type. So this is my version of the "Strawberry Tiramisu".


    1 cup strawberries
    1 cup confectioners' sugar
    1 cup mascarpone cheese
    1/2 cup heavy whipped cream
    2 tablespoons milk
    ladyfingers (as needed)
    1 cup chilled espresso(I used the freshly brewed)
    1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder

  1. Clean and chop the strawberries and blend these with 1/4 cup of confectioners' sugar. Set aside the blended puree.
  2. Beat the mascarpone cheese, whipped cream, sugar and milk for 2 minutes until the mixture is uniform.
  3. Dip the ladyfingers in the brewed espresso and place them in a cake pan.
  4. Spread the cheese mixture (as in step 2) over the ladyfingers and then with the strawberry puree.
  5. Repeat the above procedure with ladyfingers, cream and the strawberry puree.
  6. Top the layers with the remaining cheese mixture.
  7. Dust cocoa over the completed dessert and serve chilled.

Hope this helps to satisfy your cravings of this fabulous Italian dessert in my style. :)
