Low-Calorie Dessert for any Occasion
Admittedly, I’m probably the biggest tiramisu lover in the world. And honestly, nothing comes close to the taste of a real tiramisu with mascarpone. However, this Italian dessert is also incredibly high in calories.
For this reason, I already have two tiramisu recipes on my blog. The first on is probably the world’s best tiramisu based on my grandma’s recipe. The second is a healthier and more calorie-friendly version of mine which is also really flavorful and creamy.
However, today I have another tiramisu recipe for you, which is this super simple and extremely healthy no-bake dessert.
Since you usually use ladyfingers as a biscuit layer in tiramisu, I though why not using some rice cakes instead. But to recreate this tiramisu flavor, we are going to soak them in a mixture of espresso and bitter almon flavoring.
For the cream, we use a high protein soy yogurt as well as some cream cheese. The combination of the two is surprisingly close to the creamy sweet taste of mascarpone.
Overall, this recipe not only saves us a lot of calories, but also quite a bit of work. Thus, this healthy no-bake dessert is a delicious, calorie friendly dessert for your everyday life.
The amounts given in this recipe make about two servings of this tiramisu style no-bake dessert. But feel free to double, triple or halve the amounts, depending on how many people you want to prepare the dessert for.
In addition, you can always prepare a little more of it, because the tiramisu also keeps for one to two days in the refrigerator.
However, if you like to have a larger portion or one with more or less calories, carbs, proteins, or fats, feel free to adjust the amount of carbs, protein and fats to your individual needs.
I always base portion sizes on my personal dietary needs (presumably those of the average woman). However, you or perhaps one of your fellow eaters may need more or less than I do.
Here’s what you’ll need for this recipe:
- 200 grams or 7 ounces of high-protein soy yogurt (~1 cup)
- 60 grams or 2.2 ounces of fat-reduced cream cheese (~1/4 cup)
- two tablespoons of erythritol or xylitol
- one freshly brewed espresso
- two drops of bitter almond flavoring
- two thick rice or corn cakes
- some baking cocoa to serve
Variations and Substitutions
Instead of the high-protein soy yogurt, you can use regular soy yogurt or Greek yogurt (0.2 to 5% fat).
Also, you can replace the espresso with a strong pour-over-coffee. And if you don’t have a bitter almond flavor on hand, you can simply omit it or, if you really want that tiramisu flavor, replace it with a very small shot of amaretto.
Finally, you can also replace the erythritol or xylitol with regular powdered sugar.
Healthy No-Bake Dessert Tiramisu Style – Here’s How to Make It
Typically, tiramisu is prepared with powdered sugar. Therefore, you can also make a low-calorie or calorie-free powdered sugar for this healthy no-bake dessert. All you have to do is put your erythritol or xylitol in a blender and it will become powdered sugar within seconds.
But if you don’t have a blender on hand and still want to use a more calorie-friendly alternative to powdered sugar, you can just use the erythritol or xylitol as is.
So, to prepare our low-calorie dessert, we first mix the soy yogurt with the cream cheese and one and a half tablespoons of “powdered sugar”. Set this mixture aside for a moment and prepare your espresso. Therefore, mix the hot coffee with the remaining “powdered sugar” and the bitter almond flavoring.
Next, crumble the rice or corn cakes, put them in a bowl and pour over the espresso. Mix everything well so that the small pieces get all soaked with the coffee.
Now you can start layering your healthy no-bake dessert. First distribute the rice cakes evenly on the bottom of two small jars and then layer the cream on top. Repeat this process one more time and then cover the glasses with a lit and place them in the refrigerator for about an hour.
Before serving them, you can dust them with a little bit of cocoa for that tiramisu feeling and then enjoy them a healthy no-bake dessert.
