What Is A Tiramisu?

So, what exactly is a tiramisu? This Italian dessert has only been around for a couple of a hundred years. Although it is one of the newer recipes, this does not mean it is not popular! On the contrary, tiramisu can be found in dozens of countries and thousands of restaurants.

Although the non-dairy tiramisu recipe we will be discussing today does not have dairy products, the original tiramisu recipe uses heavy milk, espresso, coffee, sugar, and creamy cheese that is perfect for blending.

Dairy Alternatives In Baking And Cooking

There are a lot of dairy alternatives that make baking and cooking as someone who is lactose intolerant a lot easier. We have come a long way as more and more plant-based alternatives are developed and produced. Tiramisu if a favorite dessert to many people and thankfully, non-dairy and vegan options give us a good range to try!

 Can lactose intolerant eat tiramisu?

First, there are over a dozen different types of dairy or animal milk alternatives. For example, you can use different types of milk like almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, and even pea milk!

These substitutes are very easy to use and can make this non-dairy tiramisu as simple as the dairy tiramisu recipe! You will no longer have to worry about stomach aches and digestive issues getting in the way of your desserts!

What You Need To Make This Non-Dairy Tiramisu Recipe

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups of white all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 Cup of brown sugar
  • 1/2 Cup of Almond Milk

Although I chose almond milk for this non-dairy tiramisu recipe because of how naturally sweet it is, you can use any milk alternative that does not have dairy!

  • 2 tbsp of vegan butter
  • 1 tsp of vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup of Vegan Cream Cheese

Although you can make your own vegan mascarpone to mimic the dairy option, I like to keep it simple for beginners and use a pre-made vegan cream cheese that has the same consistency and flavor.

  • Ladyfingers

There are vegan options for cookies if you are looking for a complete vegan-free option!

  • 1 Cup of Cold Espresso
  • 2 tablespoons of mocha

Equipment

Step By Step Instructions For This Non-Dairy Tiramisu Recipe

Step 1: Prepare the Ingredients

The first step in this non-dairy tiramisu recipe is the easiest and the most important. You should prepare the ingredients carefully by making sure that the ingredients are measured out and put to the side.

Step 2: Make the Custard/Filling

Making the custard is easy. You will either need a blender or a large bowl with a whisk. Take all of the ingredients not including the ladyfingers, espresso, and mocha powder, and mix them together. Make sure that it is smooth and consistent. If needed, add more sugar if you want to continue to sweeten it.

Step 3: Soak the Ladyfingers

During the third step in this non-dairy tiramisu recipe, you will need to soak the lady fingers in the coffee/espresso mix. Some people prefer to use liquor. Either way, the ladyfingers only need to lightly soak in the espresso. Be careful not to keep it in for long as it can become soggy.

Step 4: Put Together the Non-Dairy Tiramisu

As you soak the ladyfingers in the espresso mixture, it is important to also start putting together the non-dairy tiramisu. Add a bottom light layer of ladyfingers. Make sure to add them and press them down lightly. Then, spread the custard or filling cream on top and continue to layer. Usually, I stop at three layers but you can get creative!

Step 5: Cool for 2 Hours and Serve

Although you can enjoy this delicious dessert at room temperature, it is better if you cool it in the refrigerator for a minimum of two hours before you serve it. It tastes a lot better when it is cool!
