Vegan Tiramisu

Vegan Tiramisu This is for tiramisu lovers who can’t get enough of fat sweet cream πŸ™‚

And oh yes this is a really creamy heaven despite all the healthy attributes. There is no industrial sugar added (the lady fingers and the chocolate have some tho), you can use maple sirup, agave sirup or a very unvegan honey Β if you please. Even tho the cashew cream tastes unbelievable similar to real mascarpone cream and is rich and creamy it turns out to be the perfect dessert for a dinner with friends or family because it is nice and light and even when you overeat you don’t feel too bad πŸ™‚ Also goes well with latenightmunching on movienight.

I used a tray 30×20 cm and made two layers of biscuit fingers.

You start with making the coffee. I used about 2,5 large cups. you can mix in some cognac or amaretto into the coffee if you like and if you are not straight edge. I am very far from straight edge but I prefer the tiramisu without alcohol much more then with. Β I refer it to be some childhood aversion against some awful chocolate-pralines πŸ™‚

Pour some of the coffee onto a large plate and soak the biscuits on the sugary side until they are half soaked thru and place them, with the soaked side up, in the tray.

Next is the chocolate cream layer.
You need:

  • 400 g silk tofu
  • 200 g vegan dark chocolate
  • 2 Tbsp Maple or Agavesirup (if you are not vegan or superbroke like me you could use your flatmates honey. but only if nobody’s Β looking)

Give the Chocolate a melt in a hot water bath (if you are a professional chocolate melter you should know how to). let it cool. Meanwhile mix the Tofu in your food processor with the sweetener. Add the melted chocolate and process for 5 minutes until the cream gets thick and creamy. Let the cream rest in the fridge until needed.

For the “Mascarpone” cream you need:

  • 250 g Β Cashew Nuts soaked in water overnight
  • 1, 5 tsp of nutritional yeast flakes
  • 2,5 tsp of vanilla bean powder
  • 3 TbspΒ Maple or Agavesirup
  • 1/2 cup cold water

also you will need to make this cream thicker with a thickener like for example agar-agar powder. Mix two tsp agar-agar with half a cup hot water. stir and set aside.

Mix all the ingredients in food processor until totally smooth. It takes a few minutes of patience and you’ll need to scrape down the sides every now and then. After you are sure all is smooth and perfectly perfect add the thickener and process for another 2 minutes.

Now you can start layering. First with the chocolate cream from the fridge. Spread it out evenly with the back of a spoon on top of the biscuits. Β Then again make a coffee soaked layer of biscuits on top of the chocolate cream. Β Then the Cashew cream. Β Sprinkle too much dark chocolate powder over everything and now do the hardest part with an unshaken zen attitude (without cheating!) : wait patiently for 8 h until the tiramisu is cold, soaked and prepared to die fast.
….leave an acceptable piece for your flatmate

About Sarita Chia

Hello and Namaskaram from South India my current home. My name is Sarita and I am originally from Germany. After spending my last 7 years in the big cities Berlin and London I decided to settle for a life in a more peaceful, green and soothing atmosphere. Here I share my passion for raw and vegan food. It's been quite a journey for me after turning vegan in May 2011 and I got to explore so incredibly much in these past years and got quite experienced in food prep, cooking vegan meals and moreover learning to listening to my body and which foods suit me the best. I just adore sweet fruit and love to indulge in raw desserts, cakes, ice creams, cookies, smoothie bowls, you name it. Just can't get over it what magic can be done with simple ingredients being likewise a treat for your taste buds and for your system. Yoga and meditation has become another big part of my life over the years. I feel the benefits from just that little fragment of time which I invest daily. I feel that that’s for me the most significant experience of my life which I want to deepen even more. Apart from that I'm a big nature fan and love love love trees :) and yes I also hug them if I feel like it. I'm a great hippie just like my parents, all up for love and peace. I believe that everyone creates their own world and is responsible for everything happening in their lives, even the bad stuff. I try to keep a happy and positive outlook on things as I find that perception creates reality. I am also a great dreamer: I believe that everyone on this planet will turn vegan someday and that it's possible for humankind to evolve into conscious and loving beings which manage to live without wars, money, hatred and crime. The revolution has already started as everyone starts from their own personal (r)evolution towards truth, compassion, empathy, love, peace and all the good stuff. We are constantly learning how to be better humans that’s what I believe. And dayum I ride my rainbow colored unicorn in my sunshine filled fairy world just because I can. I believe in magic. True every day magic. Good happy magic moments. It happens every day you just have to open your eyes ;) Travelling is my heart and I count it as a great part of education. The most important one actually! I think that by travelling you get to learn the real shit! The real life lessons! Be free and wild. Be a child of wind and sun. With this blog I hope to inspire others to make healthier & happier choices and I hope to show how easy it is to switch and keep up a healthy plantbased diet all around the world.
