Sue’s Tiramisu with a twist

IMG_7022.jpg

Coffee lover Sue, who recently retired was craving for a delicious dessert. She didn’t have any ladyfinger biscuits at home so thought she’d amend the recipe slightly and use The Low Sugar One instead. The perfect alternative as she is trying to cut back on sugar anyway without losing the possibility to indulge every now and then.

INGREDIENTS

  • 250 g The Low Sugar One granola

  • 225 ml whipping cream

  • 225 g mascarpone cheese

  • 75 g sugar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • 1 tablespoon Amaretto liquor or Brandy (optional)

  • 250 - 350 ml espresso

  • Cocoa powder for dusting the top

METHOD:

Crush The Low Sugar One to remove any bigger pieces. Put aside.

In a bowl, beat whipping cream, sugar, and vanilla until soft peaks are formed.

To the mix add mascarpone cheese (and amaretto if you like) and continue to whip to stiff peaks.

In a small bowl add half of The Low Sugar One and add about 100ml of espresso. Mix well until it’s slightly soggy. Add the remaining granola and some more espresso. Mix well and put it aside for about 10 minutes.

Grab some nice glasses and add a layer of The Low Sugar One mix to it. Push it down with a spoon.

Spread a layer of the whipped cream mixture on top of the first layer. Repeat process until the glasses are filled.

Dust the top of dessert with cocoa powder.

Refrigerate for about 2-4 hours before serving.
