Light Tiramisu


light tiramisu

Not a real tiramisu, but a much lighter, yet rich, smooth and delicious creme, inspired by the flavors found in the classic Italian dessert.

Makes 6 servings

Total time: 2 hours 20 minutes
Prep: 20 minutes
Chill: 2 hours

2 tablespoons amaretto liqueur
1 tablespoon espresso powder
1 cup part-skim ricotta cheese
1 cup light cream cheese
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon unsweetened cocoa powder

1. Place amaretto liqueur and espresso powder in a small bowl and mix with a fork. This would allow the powder to dissolve in the liquid.

2. Place cheeses in another bowl. Microwave 30 seconds to bring them to room temperature.

3. Using a spatula, transfer cheeses and amaretto/espresso mixture to food processor bowl. Add the powdered sugar. Process 2 minutes, stopping once to scrape the sides of the bowl with a spatula, until light and creamy and very smooth.

4. Transfer to individual serving dishes. Chill 2 hours.

5. When ready to serve, dust with cocoa powder (dust through a strainer for light coverage). Serve immediately.
