This low carb version of tiramisu uses a coffee-soaked almond crumble instead of lady fingers. The creamy topping is made of Greek yogurt with a hint of mascarpone cheese for a lighter dessert with the same great taste.

  • almond flour
    1/2 cup
  • erythritol or other sugar substitute (divided use)
    1/4 cup plus 1 1/2 tbsp
  • ground cinnamon
    1 tsp
  • salt
    1/4 tsp
  • espresso or strong coffee
    1 tbsp
  • Plain Nonfat Greek yogurt
    2 cup
  • mascarpone cheese
    3 tbsp
  • dark rum
    1 tbsp
  • orange zest
    2 tsp (from 1 orange)
  • vanilla extract
    1 tsp
  • cocoa powder
    1 tsp


  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, toast the almond flour for 3 minutes or until golden, stirring often to avoid burning.

  2. In a small bowl, mix the toasted almond flour, 1 1/2 tbsp of the erythritol, cinnamon and salt. Add the espresso and stir. Divide between 6 serving glasses (about 1 heaping tablespoon each).

  3. In a medium bowl, mix the yogurt with the mascarpone, remaining 1/4 cup erythritol, rum, orange zest and vanilla. Spoon about 1/3 cup on top of the coffee-almond base in each of the serving glasses. Dust each tiramisu lightly with cocoa powder just before serving.
