Tiramisu is one of the most satisfying desserts when it’s at its best. However, the process of making it yourself can be overwhelming at first, especially on the keto diet.
Is it possible to make a high-quality keto tiramisu? What ingredients should you use? How do you replace the high-carb tiramisu cake layer?
After researching and experimenting, I’ve found that tiramisu is surprisingly easy to make and fit into keto. As with other keto desserts, we’ll make a few simple ingredient swaps to cut out the excess net carbs while providing us with the satisfying experience of an authentic tiramisu.
Tiramisu is an Italian dessert with alternating layers of ladyfinger cookies (or cake) dipped in coffee and a whipped creamy filling. Some tiramisu cakes will even be dipped in a mixture of coffee and coffee liqueur, brandy, Grand Marnier, or cognac.
Since the tiramisu cake layer and filling are packed with net carbs (from added sugar and flour), traditional tiramisu is not keto-friendly. Fortunately, it is easy to swap out the high-carb ingredients to make a low-carb cake and sugar-free filling.
In this tiramisu recipe, we’ll keep each component keto by baking low-carb cake layers and using keto-friendly sweetener in the filling. We also kept it as easy as possible by relying on simple and accessible keto ingredients.
