If you ask my favourite dessert I would say tiramisu : that moment when coffee, cocoa and cheesy cream meet in your mouth is simply divine. Choosing to stay away from flour and refined sugar does no longer mean I have to stay away from tiramisu. Wondering why ? Thanks to this easy and quick dessert. On top of it, its all raw – so you do not have to wait for baking. When sudden company arrives, this practical and healthy recipe can save you…This recipe is egg, flour and refined sugar free. You can replace almonds with sunflower or pumpkin seeds if you are sensitive or allergic to nuts. Those with dairy allergy can replace milk and cheese with coconut milk and cashew cheese.
