Here is the guilt-free tiramisu’ I created for a healthier but still yummy version of the most popular Italian dessert. This recipe has been selected as Runner Up, in the Healthy Cooking Online contest issued by the prestigious Taste of Home Magazine, and featured in the Country Woman Magazine February/March 2016 issue.
This tiramisu’ is incredibly light and creamy. For a kid-friendly version just omit the espresso coffee and use whole milk instead of non-fat milk.

Dip quickly half of the ladyfingers into the coffee mixture, allowing excess to drip off.
Make a layer of ladyfingers over the baking dish.
