The key to making a successful vegan mascarpone tiramisu is to use high-quality, plant-based ingredients that mimic the texture and taste of traditional mascarpone and heavy cream. Vegan mascarpone can be made from a variety of ingredients, such as cashews, macadamia nuts, or soy, and is widely available at most health food stores or online. (You can find our recipe at Vegan Mascarpone Recipe or a recipe that includes making the mascarpone at Vegan Tiramisu Silken Tofu. For a mascarpone without nuts, see Vegan Mascarpone (No Nuts). In order to make your own vegan ladyfingers, see Vegan Ladyfingers)

Vegan heavy cream can be made from coconut milk or soy milk and can be easily whipped to create the same texture as traditional heavy cream.

To start making your vegan mascarpone tiramisu, you will need to gather all of the ingredients. These include:

  • 1 cup vegan heavy cream
  • 1 cup vegan mascarpone cheese
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup amaretto or other liqueur
  • 2 cups coffee or espresso
  • 1 package ladyfingers
  • Cocoa powder for dusting

The first step is to whip the vegan heavy cream in a medium bowl until stiff peaks form. This will give the cream a light and airy texture, which is essential for creating the right consistency in the tiramisu.

Next, in a separate bowl, mix together the vegan mascarpone cheese and sugar until well combined. Once the vegan heavy cream is whipped, gently fold it into the mascarpone mixture until fully incorporated. This will create the creamy filling for the tiramisu.

In a shallow dish, mix together the amaretto or liqueur and coffee or espresso. This mixture will be used to soak the ladyfingers, which are the traditional cookies used in tiramisu. Dip the ladyfingers into the coffee mixture and layer them at the bottom of a 9×13 inch dish.

Spread half of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers, then repeat with another layer of ladyfingers and the remaining mascarpone mixture.

Finally, dust the top of the tiramisu with cocoa powder. This will give the dessert a rich chocolate flavor and a beautiful presentation.

Cover the dish with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 2 hours before serving. This will allow the flavors to meld together and the ladyfingers to absorb the coffee mixture, creating the perfect texture for the tiramisu.

One of the great things about vegan mascarpone tiramisu is that it can be made ahead of time, making it a perfect dessert for special occasions or dinner parties. It can also be made in advance and frozen, so you can enjoy it anytime you want!
