The perfect healthy Tiramisu recipe

One of my all time favourite desserts (including everything with chocolate) is the italian dessert Tiramisu. It is so comforting, soft and light. When I visited Rome I had a project where I tried to find THE best Tiramisu. This was an harder task than expected, and I was not satisfied even after tasting a total of 21 Tiramisu desserts. The gelattos on the other hand.. But that is another story..! Anyway, so my only chance was to try to compose the perfect Tiramisu recipe myself.

For me the perfect Tiramisu has to contain enough cream cheese, not be too sweet, and not too much whipped cream. The lady fingers also has to be more than enough soaked in coffee and liqour (..or orangejuice if you are under 18/21 years old).

I did find the prefect tiramisu recipe it, and I have now developed it into a much more perfect healthy Tiramisu recipe. But believe me, you won´t notice! It is so GOOD!
