Tiramisu – better latte than never! 

 Coffee is like marmite – you either love it or you hate it – and if you love it (like me) it can be dangerously addictive. I used to get through not one, not two, but three large skinny lattes a day when I was working in an office, but managed to wean myself off it and felt loads better for doing so. But I do still really love the taste of it, so these days I’m still partial to the odd decaf almond milk latte here and there.

I suddenly realised last time I was sipping one such latte that I haven’t posted any coffee-based recipes on the blog, which is pretty criminal and I apologise profusely for my misgivings. So better late than never (or should I say better latte than never) here is my super tasty tiramisu!
It might look a little complicated but fear not, it only requires 9 ingredients to make all three layers so it’s really very easy. And it’s perfect for that little after dinner coffee and sweet fix all in one!

Makes 3-4 ramekins

Ingredients

For the biscuit layer:
  • 1 cup cashew nuts
  • ¾ cup dates, pitted
  • 1 tbsp black coffee
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
For the chocolate mousse layer:
  • 1 medium avocado
  • ¾ cup dates
  • 3 tbsp black coffee
  • 4 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 3 tbsp cacao powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

For the cream layer:

  • 1 cup coconut cream
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil,melted
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • Optional: cacao powder for dusting on top

For the biscuit base, combine the ingredients in a food processor and whizz for a minute or so until a crunchy, sticky mixture forms. Spoon this into the base of your ramekins or glasses.

To make the chocolate mousse layer, combine all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and blend until a smooth chocolatey mixture forms – spoon this on top of the biscuit bases and pop them in the freezer while you make the final layer.

For the coffee cream layer, simply add all the ingredients to a mixing bowl and stir well. Spoon this on top of the chocolate mousse layer and top with a dusting of cacao powder.

Love, Mrs H xx
