In this post, we’re going to talk about one of the yummiest and healthiest desserts out there – vegan tiramisu without coffee. That’s right, you can have all the creamy, sweet goodness of traditional tiramisu, but without all the unhealthy ingredients and caffeine. (You can also find a regular tiramisu recipe at Vegan Tiramisu Recipe)
For starters, let’s talk about why vegan tiramisu is so much better for you than the classic version. Instead of using heavy cream and eggs, vegan tiramisu uses coconut cream and almond milk, which contain less saturated fat and cholesterol. And, instead of processed sugar, we use natural sweetener, maple syrup. Plus, the cacao powder on top is loaded with antioxidants and has various health benefits, like reducing inflammation and improving heart health.

So, not only does it taste amazing, but it’s good for you too! Who wouldn’t love that?
Making vegan tiramisu is super easy too. All the ingredients are easily found at your local grocery store, like vegan ladyfingers, coconut cream, almond milk, agar agar powder, maple syrup, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and cacao powder. Just heat the almond milk, coconut cream, and agar agar powder in a saucepan over medium heat until it starts to simmer, remove from heat and let it cool, then add the maple syrup, vanilla extract, lemon juice, and cacao powder. Stir it all together, pour it into a large dish, and let it set in the fridge for about two hours.
While the mixture is setting, grab a separate dish and place a layer of vegan ladyfingers at the bottom. Spoon some of the mixture over the ladyfingers, repeat the layering process until you’ve used all the mixture, then sprinkle cacao powder on top. Put it back in the fridge for at least two hours or until you’re ready to serve.
And the best part is, you can get creative with this vegan dessert! Feel free to switch up the cacao powder with cocoa powder, add different flavors like vanilla or almond extract, and experiment with different sweeteners like coconut sugar or brown sugar. You can even add chopped nuts or dried fruit for a crunchy texture and extra flavor.
So, whether you’re following a plant-based diet or just looking for a healthier and more delicious dessert, vegan tiramisu without coffee is a must-try. And the best part? You can make it ahead of time and store it in the fridge for up to three days. Perfect for special occasions, holidays, dinner parties, or just because.
Overall, vegan tiramisu without coffee is a creamy, sweet, and healthy alternative to traditional tiramisu that everyone can enjoy. So, gather your ingredients, grab a spoon, and dive into this delicious treat. Happy eating, friends!
