Tiramisu is a classic Italian dessert that has been enjoyed by many for its unique flavor and creamy texture.

This is where the vegan tiramisu with coconut cream comes in as a delicious and creamy alternative.

Vegan tiramisu coconut cream

This vegan version of tiramisu is made with a mixture of coconut cream, powdered sugar, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and cocoa powder. The creamy mixture is layered with soaked ladyfingers or sponge cake, making it a perfect dessert for special occasions, parties, or just as a sweet treat after dinner.

To make vegan tiramisu with coconut cream, you will need the following ingredients: 1 lb of vegan ladyfingers or sponge cake (See Vegan Sponge for Tiramisu for recipe), 1 can of full-fat coconut milk, chilled overnight, 1/2 cup of powdered sugar, 1 tsp of vanilla extract, 1 tsp of lemon juice, 2 cups of brewed espresso or strong coffee, 3 tbsp of rum or coffee liqueur, and 3 tbsp of cocoa powder.

The first step in making this delicious dessert is to separate the solidified coconut cream from the liquid in the can of coconut milk. This can be done by placing the can of coconut milk in the refrigerator overnight and then scooping out the solidified cream from the top of the can. The coconut cream is then beaten together with the powdered sugar, vanilla extract, and lemon juice until light and fluffy.

Next, in a shallow dish, mix together the brewed espresso or coffee and rum or coffee liqueur. Dip each ladyfinger or piece of sponge cake into the coffee mixture for a few seconds on each side, making sure not to soak them for too long. Then, arrange half of the ladyfingers or sponge cake in the bottom of an 8-inch square baking dish. Spread half of the coconut cream mixture evenly over the ladyfingers or sponge cake. Repeat with another layer of soaked ladyfingers or sponge cake and coconut cream mixture.

Finally, refrigerate the dessert for at least 2 hours, or until set. Before serving, dust the top with cocoa powder for a delicious and rich chocolate flavor.

The use of coconut cream in this vegan tiramisu recipe makes it a perfect alternative for those who are looking for a dairy-free option.
