  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

For the Cream Layer

  • 200 milliliters (7 fluid ounces) heavy cream (33%)
  • 2 tablespoons mascarpone
  • 120 grams (4.5 ounces) powdered sugar
  • 2 tablespoons freeze-dried raspberries (or strawberries)

For Assembly

Equipment

  • Blender

    Essential for making the smooth strawberry sauce. Make sure it's clean and dry before use to avoid any mix of flavors.

Servings

Serve it chilled: This dessert is best enjoyed when it’s been refrigerated overnight. The flavors meld together, resulting in a delightful bite every time! Serve it straight from the fridge to keep the layers intact and deliciously cold.

Add some garnishes: For an extra touch, sprinkle some fresh diced strawberries and a dusting of powdered sugar over each serving. 🍓 A few mint leaves can also add a pop of color and freshness.

Pair it with beverages: A sweet treat calls for the perfect drink. Pair this Strawberry Tiramisu with a glass of Prosecco or a hot cup of coffee. Both options complement the dessert beautifully.

Picnic favorite: Planning an outdoor gathering? This dessert packs well into individual mason jars or smaller containers, making it easy to serve and enjoy on-the-go. 🧺✨

Variations

Gluten-Free: Swap out the regular ladyfingers for gluten-free ladyfingers, widely available in most grocery stores. The texture and flavor stay intact, ensuring everyone can enjoy this sweet treat.

Vegan Option: Replace the heavy cream with coconut cream and use a dairy-free mascarpone alternative (available in specialty stores). Substitute the ladyfingers with vegan sponge cake slices. 🌱 This variation keeps the dessert creamy and delicious without any animal products.

Faq

  • What can I use instead of mascarpone?

    If you can't find mascarpone, you can substitute with cream cheese. It will alter the flavor slightly, but it will still be delicious!

  • How long does it need to chill?

    For the best results, chill the Tiramisu overnight. This allows the flavors to meld and the dessert to firm up.

  • Can I use fresh strawberries?

    Yes, you can use fresh strawberries. Just be sure to wash and hull them before blending. Fresh strawberries tend to be a bit more juicy, so you might need to adjust the consistency of the sauce.

  • What’s the best way to slice Tiramisu?

    Use a sharp knife and clean it between each cut. This helps to keep the layers neat and prevents the cream from smearing.

  • Can this dessert be frozen?

    Yes, you can freeze it. Wrap it tightly in plastic wrap and then foil. When you’re ready to serve, let it thaw slowly in the refrigerator.

  • Any tips for making the cream layer extra smooth?

    Ensure that your ingredients are cold, especially the heavy cream. Beat it on medium speed until you start seeing soft peaks, then add the mascarpone and continue until combined.
