If you are looking for an easy strawberry low carb dessert, then give this a try. We love tiramisu and what’s not to love about it? Layers of cream and sponge with great strong flavours. I’ve made tiramisu versions of cupcake and cheesecake, but this time have created a summer version with strawberries.

I feel that I am a bit fast and loose with calling this a strawberry tiramisu as there’s no alcohol or coffee in it. I did ponder upon called this a trifle as it’s layers of strawberries, sponge and cream. I prefer a tiramisu over a trifle, so tiramisu it is!
This strawberry tiramisu is better the next day. The cream and layers set, and the flavours develop. I made the fatal error of going out for “shenigans” with my friends and leaving the half eaten strawberry tiramisu with the Chief Taster for the night. I never saw it again. He says he gave it a good home.

TIRAMISU TIPS

  • I used coconut flour for the sponge layer, but you could use almond flour instead. Use 2 cups of almond flour for the sponge recipe in place of the coconut flour.
  • The tin for the sponge was an 8inch square brownie baking tin. Any shaped cake tin will do as you are going to cut it after it is baked.
  • Rather than assemble the tiramisu in a serving dish, how about individual glasses?
  • Adding alcohol is up to you. I haven’t in this strawberry tiramisu recipe, but a sprinkle of white rum would not be a bad choice.
  • Try this with a low carb chocolate cake for a delicious twist

HOW TO MAKE A STRAWBERRY TIRAMISU

I do have a confession about this recipe. When I first made it, I accidentally used ricotta instead of mascarpone. There was a tub of each in the same drawer in the fridge. I was probably talking to one of the cats or dogs as I reached in for the tub and never checked it. It tasted okay, I never told the Chief Taster and he scoffed it happily. I found it better the next day though. Feel free to give it a try!

    This looks delicious. Just curious about the amount of strawberries. It says 1 cup strawberries, chopped. By that, do you mean measure whole strawberries to a cup and then chop that amount? Or do you mean 1 cup of chopped strawberries. Same for the sliced? It seems that the amounts would be quite a bit different depending on how you read and process it. Just want to make sure I get the carbs correct. Thank you for a wonderful recipe that I can’t wait to try!

    Hi there,
    You mention to use 2 cups of almond flour for the sponge recipe in place of 1/2 cup coconut flour. Is this a correct amount?

      Yes as coconut flour only needs a smaller amount.
