TIRA-don’t have to-MIS-U!


Hot damn I love the internet and it’s wealth of knowledge!  Don’t know that I could have ever come up with this recipe on my own.  Hello new favorite dessert!

Please try this tiramisu-like recipe which I adapted from:


I changed a few things to use ingredients I already had and the tiramisu-ness is still there.

Chocolate layer

3/4 cup almonds
1/4 cup macadamia nuts (I used cashews)
2/3 cup water
1 pinch Himalayan salt (I used sea salt)
1/4 teaspoon real vanilla
2.5 tablespoons raw cacao powder
2.5 tablespoons agave nectar
2 tablespoons coconut oil

—In a food processor, grind the nuts into a flour and add the rest of the ingredients. Process until completely smooth (can require 5 minutes of processing). Pour about 1 cm of the filling in a pretty bowl and place in the freezer to harden a bit while you make the Cookie Crumbles.

Cookie crumbles

1/2 cup pecans (I used walnuts)
2 pinches Himalayan salt (sea salt again)
1/4 teaspoon real vanilla
Arrack essence to taste (alternatively some cognac or coffee) (I brewed a tablespoon of coffee with a 1/2 c of water and used a couple tablespoons for my taste)

—Pulse the ingredients in a mixer to create crumbs. Drop some Arrack, Cognac or Coffee over and then spread a layer of the Crumbs over the frozen Chocolate filling from the freezer. (My crumbs were not crumby but like a chunky paste because of the coffee) Continue with the Vanilla Layer.

Vanilla Layer

3/4 cup cashews
1 pinch of Himalayan salt (sea salt)
1 teaspoon real vanilla
0.5 cup Water
4 teaspoons light agave nectar
1 teaspoon lucuma (I used Maca powder)
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
2 tablespoons coconut oil

Grind the cashews in a food processor or coffee grinder to make a nut flour. Add the rest of the ingredients and process until completely smooth. Pour about one centimeter of the vanilla filling over the chocolate filling and the Cookie crumbs. Put in the freezer until hard and then continue to add layers. Put some raw cacao in a mesh sieve and sprinkle it on top of the tiramisu. Thaw before eating or refrigerate overnight and eat at will!
