Easy Homemade Vegan Tiramisu

If you’ve been on the lookout for a dessert that’s both indulgent and kind to our animal friends, then you’re in for a treat! Today, we’re diving into the world of Vegan Tiramisu.


Yes, you heard that right—this classic Italian dessert can be made entirely plant-based, and trust me, it’s just as dreamy as the original.

What is tiramisu?

Tiramisu is a classic Italian layered dessert that combines coffee, ladyfingers, and a creamy filling. Here’s a breakdown:

  • Layers: Tiramisu traditionally features ladyfingers, which are light and airy sponge biscuits, dipped in espresso or strong coffee.
  • Creamy Dream: The other main layer is a rich and decadent mascarpone cream. Mascarpone is a type of Italian cheese with a soft, spreadable texture and a slightly sweet flavor.
  • Coffee Kick: The coffee adds a delightful bitterness that complements the sweetness of the cream and ladyfingers.
  • Cocoa Magic: The dessert is typically dusted with cocoa powder on top, adding a touch of chocolatey depth and visual appeal.

Why Vegan Tiramisu?

Traditional tiramisu is packed with eggs, dairy, and sometimes even gelatin. But we can achieve that creamy, rich texture and bold coffee flavor without any animal products. Plus, it’s a fantastic way to enjoy a classic dessert while sticking to a vegan lifestyle or just reducing your dairy intake.

Prep time


Cooking time




  • For the Cream Layer:

  • 1 1/2 cups raw cashews (soaked in water for at least 4 hours)

  • 1/2 cup coconut cream

  • 1/2 cup almond milk

  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or agave nectar

  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)

  • For the Coffee Layer:

  • 1 1/2 cups strong brewed coffee (cooled)

  • 1/4 cup coffee liqueur (optional but recommended for that authentic flavor)

  • For the Ladyfingers:

  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

  • 1/2 cup almond flour

  • 1/2 cup sugar

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda

  • 1 cup almond milk

  • 1/4 cup coconut oil (melted)

  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

  • For Topping:

  • Unsweetened cocoa powder

  • Dark chocolate shavings (optional)


  • Make the Ladyfingers:
  • Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C) and line a baking sheet with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl, mix all the dry ingredients: all-purpose flour, almond flour, sugar, baking powder, and baking soda.
  • In another bowl, combine the wet ingredients: almond milk, melted coconut oil, apple cider vinegar, and vanilla extract.
  • Mix the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just combined.
  • Scoop the batter into a piping bag and pipe out ladyfinger shapes onto the baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15-18 minutes or until golden brown. Let them cool completely.
  • Prepare the Cream Layer:
  • Drain and rinse the soaked cashews.
  • In a high-speed blender, blend the cashews, coconut cream, almond milk, maple syrup, vanilla extract, and melted coconut oil until smooth and creamy. This might take a few minutes to get the perfect texture.
  • Assemble the Tiramisu:
  • Dip each ladyfinger briefly into the cooled coffee (mixed with coffee liqueur if using). Be careful not to soak them for too long—they should be moist but not falling apart.
  • Arrange a layer of soaked ladyfingers in the bottom of your serving dish.
  • Spread half of the cashew cream mixture over the ladyfingers.
  • Repeat with another layer of soaked ladyfingers and the remaining cashew cream.
  • Smooth the top and cover with plastic wrap. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight, to allow the flavors to meld together.
  • Finishing Touches:
  • Just before serving, dust the top generously with unsweetened cocoa powder.
  • Add some dark chocolate shavings for extra decadence, if you like.

Serving Suggestions:

  • Dust with extra cocoa powder or shaved vegan chocolate for a beautiful presentation.
  • Top with fresh berries for a touch of fruity freshness.
  • Drizzle with a vegan caramel sauce for an extra decadent experience.

This vegan tiramisu is sure to impress anyone who tries it. It’s a delicious testament to the fact that plant-based desserts can be just as rich, flavorful, and satisfying as their traditional counterparts. So ditch the dairy, grab your ingredients, and get ready to indulge in a taste of vegan tiramisu heaven!
