Matcha Tiramisu

  • 8 savoiardi : 8 pieces
  • 100 milliliters (0.42 cups) warm water : 3.4 fluid ounces
  • 1 teaspoon (5 grams) green matcha : 0.18 ounces
  • 200 grams (7.05 ounces) mascarpone : 7.05 ounces
  • 100 milliliters (0.42 cups) whipping cream : 3.4 fluid ounces
  • 50 grams (1.76 ounces) powdered sugar : 1.76 ounces
  • Berries for decoration : as desired
  • 1 teaspoon (5 grams) roasted matcha : 0.18 ounces


  • Electric Mixer

    Perfect for achieving stable peaks when whipping the mascarpone, cream, and powdered sugar together. If you don't have one, a hand whisk and some elbow grease will do the trick!

  • Mixing Bowls

    You'll need a couple of bowls for mixing different ingredients. Choose ones with a non-slip base for better control.

  • Glass or Mold

    For the assembly of your tiramisu layers. Transparent glasses show off the beautiful layers of your dessert!


Step 1

Whip mascarpone with cream, green matcha, and powdered sugar until stable peaks form, which typically takes about 2-4 minutes. Make sure both the whipping cream and mascarpone are cold for best results.

Step 2

Combine warm water and roasted matcha. Mix well until the matcha powder is fully dissolved.

Step 3

Soak savoiardi biscuits in this matcha solution. Don't let them soak too long or they may become too mushy.

Step 4

Put the soaked savoiardi biscuits at the bottom of the glass or any mold you are using. Layer them evenly for a balanced taste.

Step 5

Cover the biscuits with a layer of cream. Then add another layer of soaked savoiardi biscuits on top. Repeat the layering process until all ingredients are used up.

Step 6

Garnish the dessert with berries. You can use any berries of your choice; they add both a burst of flavor and a vibrant color.

Step 7

Put the tiramisu in the fridge for a couple of hours or better yet, overnight. Allowing it to sit overnight will let the flavors meld together beautifully.

Want to make this recipe gluten-free or vegan? Here’s how you can tweak it:

🌾 Gluten-Free: Simply replace the savoiardi biscuits with gluten-free ladyfingers. The rest of the ingredients are naturally gluten-free!

🌱 Vegan: Replace the mascarpone and whipping cream with coconut cream or a vegan cream cheese. Use a vegan powdered sugar and vegan-friendly biscuits for soaking!


  • Why isn't my cream reaching stable peaks?

    Ensure that both the cream and mascarpone are cold, and avoid over-whipping as it can cause the mixture to become too stiff or even curdle.

  • Can I use regular ladyfingers?

    Yes, but to replicate the matcha flavor, you'll need to infuse them in the roasted matcha liquid as described in the recipe.

  • How can I make my tiramisu layers more distinct?

    Make sure to soak the savoiardi biscuits just enough so they absorb the flavor but don't become soggy. Layering with precise amounts of cream and biscuits also helps.

  • How long can this tiramisu sit in the fridge?

    It's best enjoyed within 24-48 hours of preparation for optimum flavor and texture.

  • Can I freeze Matcha Tiramisu?

    While you can freeze it for up to a month, the texture of the cream might become slightly grainy upon thawing. I'd recommend enjoying it fresh or chilled from the fridge.

  • What else can I add to this recipe?

    You can experiment with adding a layer of sweet red bean paste, or drizzle some honey for extra complexity in flavor.
