The Lazy Vegan’s Tiramisu

Yo guys, I’m alive (and making the world’s oatmeal reserves grow smaller everyday, but if you follow me on Instagram you probably know that already).

What can I say, this girl likes her porridge. Especially on cold, winter days like the ones we’ve been having lately. Someone please tell summer (and with summer the lack of classes and homework and the abundance of all things ice-cream) to come back because I’m so not digging this wet, windy days thing.

This version of tiramisu may be low in fat, refined sugar free and vegan, but it sure tastes delicious! It couldn't be easier to make either!

But do you guys know what makes these dreary days a teeny bit better (apart from porridge, but again, is there anything that porridge cannot improve?)?


Long naps.  They’re what this winter thing is all about. You know the kind: you go lay in bed after lunch. “Just half an hour and then I’m back to my spot in the library to bury myself under all those books and DIE” you tell yourself. *Laughs*. Half an hour, you say, but truth is you wake up and it’s already dark outside. 

“What day is today?”

Those naps are the evil, and you know I’m right.

This version of tiramisu may be low in fat, refined sugar free and vegan, but it sure tastes delicious! It couldn't be easier to make either!

And what do naps have to do with tiramisu, you say. Won’t you happen to have had a four-hour-long nap today and have forgotten how to write a decent post, young lady?

Truth is, I have, but that’s another story for another post.

I mean. This tiramisu. It was totally part of a dream I had during one of my shamefully long naps. I woke up feeling disoriented and I knew I had to make it happen.

And oh, my friend, I did.

I got up, put together some random stuff I had in my dorm and made magic happen.

Magic in form of layers of chocolate, coffee and vanilla, aka, the best kind of magic. I mean, I’m sure that tiramisu making is a subject in Hogwarts.

To top it off, this dessert is also refined sugar free, low in fat and vegan. Vegan tiramisu say what? Yeeeeeeeeaaaaaah. You wouldn’t believe how nice of a mascarpone substitute silken tofu is! And fear not, it doesn’t taste like tofu, but like chocolate and vanilla!

Of course, you cannot expect this to taste like an old-fashioned tiramisu. Whether you like it or not, eggs, sugar and mascarpone do make a dessert fabulous.

But let me tell you that this version is not lacking any deliciousness anyway. Give it a go and sail to the land of sweet chocolate and coffee dreams with me.

Oh wait, I can’t.

Guess who dropped the tiramisu pan on the floor right after taking some pics?

The pan is alright but all of my dreams shattered.

 Here’s the part when I apologize for the fact that I’m not blogging as much as we’re all used to. Believe me when I say I do miss you all dearly, but uni has been getting the best of me lately and it’s almost impossible for me to log on and check on you. Also, I will try my best to answer all your inquiries as soon as I can! I’m so, so sorry. I hope I do get to post more often around Christmas time. Thanks for your support!

    wow this is an awesome idea with the bread!!! (is it distinguishable? or will i be able to surprise some family members?! XD)

      You can certainly notice it’s bread, but it doesn’t taste funny or something ๐Ÿ˜‰ Also, it depends on which bread you’re using. I recommend thin sliced sandwich bread ๐Ÿ˜‰ xx

    I think afternoon naps are just a necessary part of university. ๐Ÿ™‚ I certainly took plenty! Tiramisu is one of my favorite desserts and I can’t wait to try this healthy version!

    You’re back!!! I checked the date of the post twice to make sure I wasn’t reading an old one :). And you come bearing a potential Christmas dessert recipe – anybody who doesn’t forgive you for your absence now … well, forget about them.
    Many vegan tiramisu recipes – at least over here – call for zwieback [do you know that? I didn’t find a proper translation] and that doesn’t work too well. The idea of using bread sounds interesting. I hope I’ll get a chance to give it a try.

      Aw girl, thanks so much for such a sweet comment!!
      I had no idea on what zwieback was, but I googled it and now I know hehehe. The zwieback itself sounds delicious but assuming it’s quite hard, I don’t think it’d work that greatly when making tiramisu but I don’t know??
      Using bread makes a lovely dessert though. It doesn’t taste thaat much like the real thing, but it’s amazing anyway ๐Ÿ˜‰ xxx

    Happy New Year, Consuelo! Oh my gosh, I’m ALL about naps. Doesn’t matter what season it is. But you’re right, late winter naps are totally disorienting! Too bad I don’t have time to nap any more…babies will do that to you. This dessert looks really good. I’m so sorry you dropped it ๐Ÿ™ Sounds like you could have used a nap, hehe.
