Strawberries and Cream Tiramisu Parfait
Decadent coffee flavoured sponge finger biscuits with a hint of rum for a traditional Tiramisu flavour, putting a spin on this high fat dessert with a low in fat Strawberries and Cream filling!
The perfect New Years Eve dessert, and New Years Resolution all in one!
Tiramisu is one of those favourite desserts of mine I need to order at every restaurant. I love it. I can never get enough of Tiramisu. Coffee soaked in biscuits with coffee? And sprinkled with chocolate? Oh.my.god.
And as usual, my love of high fat stuff gets me into so much trouble. But not with this kinda stuffs.
So, my brain went in to over-drive to create something as equally decadent with the feeling of ‘I’m totally cheating on my diet,’ without really cheating.
Enter Strawberries and Cream. Strawberries and Cream are like peanut butter and chocolate, only in a tiramisu form with coffee, it totally worked.
Armed with my magic bullet and a tonne of strawberries, this was so amazing, so creamy, and so rich, my family were moaning and groaning the whole time….in a good way.
In short — make this. Your taste buds will love you.
