Day 148 – Raw Tiramisu


My son just loves Tiramisu and will always ask for me to make that for his birthday or for something special.  He is also willing to try a raw version of most foods and when we last went to Yong Green’s for dinner, he did in fact try the Raw Tiramisu.

We agreed that we would find a raw food version and make it ourselves… and that is exactly what we did together!

I must say – this is in fact much easier than making the non raw kind… no whipping up egg whites and multiple bowls of various coffee and creamy mixtures… this is simply just a 2 lots of 2 layers.


Coffee Cake Layer

1/2 cup dates, soaked in 1/2 water until soft

1 cup cashews, soaked for 1-2 hours

3 Tbsp. rum or we used Kahlua

2 1/2 Tbsp. coconut oil, melted

1 Tbsp. raw cacao

1/2 Tbsp. raw honey

1 1/2 Tsp. coffee extract (or one serve espresso)

1 Tsp. vanilla extract

pinch of sea salt


In a food processor, mix all ingredients until well incorporated and smooth

Cream Layer

1 cup cashew milk

1/2 young coconut meat

1 Tbsp. coconut oil

1 Tsp. raw honey

1/2 Tsp. vanilla extract

pinch of salt


Blend all ingredients in a blender on high until smooth.

Assembling the Tiramisu

In a small casserole dish, form a coffee cake layer (about 1cm thick) into the bottom of the dish; then pour a layer of the cream (about 0.5cm thick) over the coffee cake layer.

Chill in freezer until firm – about 1/2 hour.

Repeat with a final coffee layer and cream layer and refrigerate.

Dust the top with raw cacao powder.

This only makes a small dish of tiramisu so find a fairly small dish.  The one we used was too big – so our Tiramisu ended up a bit flat! And well was a bit hard to make look attractive!

Still tasted absolutely yummy though.  Not a single bit left in site on any plates after dinner tonight.
