Tiramisu!

Here is our version of a vegan AND gluten free tiramisu.

Let me start by saying that this is a little bit labour intensive, but in my opinion – well worth it.  🙂

After you’ve made your ‘lady fingers’ (we made them a day ahead)  …

Dunk them in some ‘Level Ground’ fair trade decaf coffee and line them up along the bottom of a glass loaf pan.

Cover them with a dusting of ‘Camino’ dark cocoa powder.

Next…

Place the following in a pot over low heat…

  • 1c of ‘So Delicious’ unsweetened coconut milk
  • 1/2c of ‘Level Ground’ decaf coffee (make it strong!)
  • 1/4c of coconut sugar
  • a generous splash of vanilla

Stir over the heat until the sugar has completely dissolved.

Remove from the heat and add in…

  • 1/2c of raw cashews
  • 1tbsp of chia seeds

Set aside and let it cool.

While the coffee/coconut milk mixture is cooling, open a can of ‘Native Forest’ coconut milk (place the can in the fridge the night before you make your dessert) and remove the ‘solid’ stuff.

You should get about one cup of coconut cream.

Place it in a blender with 2-3 tablespoons more of the cooled decaf coffee and blend until combined.

Set aside in a separate bowl.

Once the coffee/coconut milk mixture has cooled (room temp is fine) place all of that in the blender and whiz away.

Pour almost all of the coffee/coconut milk mixture (I save a few tablespoons to dress the plate) over the ‘lady fingers’ followed by all of the coconut cream.

Give the tiramisu a generous dusting of ‘Camino’ cocoa powder, cover and place in the fridge for at least four hours.

Serve with a little espresso and great company!
