Healthy tiramisu doesn't seem like a reality. This recipe isn't exactly healthy, but it has far less fat and calories than the traditional recipe.
We enjoyed it as a birthday cake this weekend at a gathering of family where the majority was celebrating a January or February birthday.
2 cartons (8 oz. each) - OR 1-16 oz. carton - fat free or light dairy sour cream
2 pkg. (8 oz. each) reduced fat cream cheese (neufchatel), softened
2/3 cup sugar or Splenda
1/4 cup fat free milk
1/2 tsp. vanilla
1/2 cup strong coffee
2 Tbl. coffee liqueur or strong coffee
2 pkg. (3 oz. each) ladyfingers, split
2 Tbl. sifted unsweetened cocoa powder
1. In a large bowl, combine sour cream, cream cheese, sugar, milk, and vanilla. Beat with an electric mixer on high speed till mixture is smooth.
2. In a small bowl, combine 1/2 cup of coffee and coffee liqueur.
3. In a 9x13 glass pan arrange one package of the ladyfingers, cut sides up. Brush with 1/2 of the coffee mixture and spread with 1/2 of the cream cheese mixture.
