All Tiramisu lovers unite, even those who aren’t fond of coffee because this one is a virgin strawberry Tiramisu, like the best strawberry cheesecake you ever had.
I’m talking about decadent layers of lady fingers dipped in fresh strawberry puree, vanilla mascarpone cheese filling and cute fun poppy seeds. Who can resist right?!
You all know that Tiramisu rules around the shack during the Holidays, and there is no dessert more on demand than the Italian Tiramisu Cheesecake recipe I posted not too long ago. Now I have the equivalent of that awesomeness for those of you who don’t do coffee but love strawberries. It is so good that even I, the espresso obsessed woman am having a dilemma. I can not choose a favorite!
Of course there will be no baking involved which makes this strawberry tiramisu extremely quick and easy to execute for anyone. Also because we are going to puree most of the strawberries, you can even use frozen ones if that is all you have available this time of the year. Just make sure to defrost them first so you can puree them easier.
Chocolate lovers, you might want to swap the poppy seeds for some nice dark chocolate shavings or cocoa nibs you can sprinkle over the strawberry layer. Kind of like a chocolate dipped strawberry version, I hope that makes sense.
Red, white and green, if this strawberry Tiramisu is not the perfect festive holiday dessert, I don’t know what is.

- 12 oz strawberries
- 1 c sliced strawberries
- 4 egg yolks organic
- 1 lb mascarpone cheese
- 1 c heavy cream
- 3 tbsp Zing™ Baking Blend
- 1 tsp Zing™ Baking Blend
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 1 tbsp poppy seeds
- 7 oz lady fingers
- 2 tbsp lemon balm leaves or basil for garnish
Using a hand held mixer beat together the heavy cream and 1 tbsp of Zing Baking Blend until whipped. Store in the refrigerator until ready to use.
In a separate bowl beat together the egg yolks, vanilla extract and 2 tbsp of Zing Baking Blend until creamy. Start adding the mascarpone cheese one dollop at the time and whisk until incorporated. Gently fold in the whipped cream and set aside.
Add the whole strawberries to the bowl of a food processor together with 1 tsp of Zing Baking Blend. Process until smooth. Taste and adjust sweetness with more Zing™ if desired. Stir in the poppy seeds and set aside.
Prepare one glass trifle bowl or 6 small wine glasses for the Tiramisu.
If assembling your strawberry Tiramisu in the wine glasses, make sure to break the lady fingers in half before layering.
Dip the lady fingers in the strawberry puree and layer them in the bottom of the glasses. Add a few of the sliced strawberries on the sides of the glasses or just sprinkle them on top of the lady fingers.
Spoon a dollop of the Mascarpone whipped cream filing on top. Layer with strawberry puree dipped lady fingers again and finish with another dollop of the mascarpone filing.
Sprinkle a few poppy seeds over the top and garnish with the lemon balm leaves and extra strawberry slices.
Refrigerate for at least 1 hour or until ready to serve.
