Indulging in a delicious dessert while on a diet is often seen as a forbidden pleasure. However, for those who crave the delicate flavors of creams and chocolate, giving up on desserts can be a true torture. The classic Italian dessert, tiramisu, is irresistibly tempting. Unfortunately, a slice of tiramisu can often undo all the hard work and sacrifices we've made on our diets. But fear not, because we have come up with a light tiramisu recipe that will allow you to enjoy this classic dessert without any regrets.
Light Tiramisu Recipe
Our light tiramisu recipe not only allows you to indulge without throwing away all your hard work, but it also gives you the freedom to enjoy these guilt-free moments of indulgence more frequently. With just a few simple substitutions, we have made this classic dessert much lighter and lower in calories.
– Classic Pavesini biscuits
– 130g light ricotta cheese
– 20ml skimmed milk
– 20 drops of sweetener
– 2 cups of coffee
– Unsweetened cocoa powder
Let's start by preparing a recipe for two people, and if there are more of us, we can simply double the quantities. Begin by preparing the coffee and allowing it to cool. Take a bowl and begin working the ricotta cheese. You can choose to use either light ricotta cheese or sheep's milk ricotta, depending on your taste preferences. It's important to note that sheep's milk ricotta is lighter and more easily digestible for those who struggle with lactose intolerance.
Add the sweetener to the ricotta cheese and continue to work it, gradually adding in the milk. Mix everything well until the ingredients are fully combined and the ricotta cream is smooth. Now, it's time to assemble the tiramisu.
How to Prepare the Light Tiramisu:
Start by spreading a layer of the ricotta cream on the bottom of a dish. Dip the Pavesini biscuits into the coffee and place them on top of the cream. Repeat this process until all the ingredients are used, layering the biscuits and cream. Finally, dust the top of the tiramisu with unsweetened cocoa powder.
To enhance the flavors and allow them to meld together, refrigerate the tiramisu for an hour before serving. This will also give the ricotta cream a firmer consistency. However, if you prefer a softer texture, you can also enjoy the tiramisu immediately after assembling it. Another option for this recipe is to use white Greek yogurt instead of ricotta, but we highly recommend giving the ricotta a try for its unique taste and texture.
Now, it's time to savor your light tiramisu. You can enjoy this guilt-free dessert without worrying about undoing all your hard work. So go ahead and indulge in the creamy, chocolatey goodness of this classic Italian dessert, without any regrets. Bon appétit!
