Low-Fat Tiramisu

Postby zeedeveelgirl » Tue Jan 16, 2007 1:51 pm

I found this recipe today on http://www.femail.com . I haven't tried it yet but I can't wait to!!!

Ingredients.

8 large Savoiardi Sponge Finger Biscuits - available in supermarkets. Go for the Unibic brand.
1/3 cup Boiling Water
1 Tablespoon Cocoa Powder

For the Cream Mixture.

1 x 250g tub Light Cream Cheese, softened
I tablespoon Splenda Sweetener
1 x 200g tub low-fat vanilla yogurt - Danone Diet Lite Brand is the best
1 teaspoon instant coffee powder
1 teaspoon grated orange rind

Method.

1. Break each biscuit into 3 pieces - if making individual serves otherwise keep whole to make one large.
2. Dissolve the cocoa in the boiling water.
3. Dip the biscuits into the dissolved cocoa and divide them into eight portions and into the bases of the glasses.
4. Place the cream cheese, sweetener, yogurt, coffee powder and orange rind into a food processor and mix until smooth.
5. Divide the mixture evenly between the glasses and chill for at least 3 hours or overnight.
6. To serve decorate with a sprinkling of cocoa powder and orange rind.

Serves 8 - You can either have them as individual serves or make together in a pie dish.

Well I made this today, sooo easy to make!! I haven't eaten it yet but I will report back when I do ;) ;) All I can say though is make sure you use very little dishes to put it in, or a small pie dish, because the serving sizes are quite small!!

It sure is!! Can't wait to try it, it does look yummy! I found these mini sized Sponge Fingers to use instead of the big Savoiardi ones (they are so cute - I'm obsessed with anything in 'mini' form!), and they're lower in kilojoules too :D I used the Extra Light Philadelphia Cheese and Yoplait No Fat yoghurt and each tiramisu only worked out to 390kJ!!!

HAHHAHA Kate!!!!! Well, not everything in mini form :P :P The fascination with all things mini has to stop somewhere right?! :P

I had a tiramisu tonight. The verdict... absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! I highly recommend it. Very filling and satisfying even though it was such a small serve - yum!!!
