Sinless Tiramisu

Enjoy this low-calorie twist on the classic Italian dessert:

Prep Time 10 min
Cook Time 30 min
Servings 8


  • 1 1/4 cup part-skim ricotta
  • 3/4 cup plain, nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup honey or any sweetener
  • 1 cup strong coffee
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon liqueur such as amaretto or cognac, optional
  • 15 ladyfinger cookies
  • 1 cup of fresh or frozen fruit
  • Unsweetened cocoa for dusting


  1. Whisk ricotta, Greek yogurt, and honey in a large bowl and refrigerate.
  2. In a mug, mix coffee, vanilla, and liqueur (if using) and set aside.
  3. Make a row of ~10 ladyfingers on a glass rectangular baking dish and drizzle each cookie with a teaspoon of coffee mixture. Cover with a thick layer of ricotta mixture and smooth with a spatula.
  4. Add a row of the fruit and remaining ladyfingers, drizzle with coffee mixture, and cover with a second layer of ricotta mixture.
  5. Smooth mixture and dust with cocoa.
  6. Refrigerate or freeze for at least 30 minutes before serving.
  7. Handy Hint: To avoid a mushy mess with the ladyfingers, drizzle, don’t soak, them with the coffee mixture.
