Refreshing alternative for tiramisu – a strawberry one!

It’s Monday evening. We all truly hate Mondays, don’t we? ;) Here is an amazing recipe that will cheer you up quickly. And don’t worry, it won’ take long hours to put a smile on your and your loved ones faces. It’s Monday, we suffered enough :)

To make this fruity tiramisu, grab the following items at your grocery shop;

  • 2 packages of lady fingers;


  • freshly squeezed juice from two oranges

  • 500 g fresh strawberries

This variation of fruity, soft and refreshing tiramisu is one of the quickest recipes I know, and it always works because it does not require baking at all.


Whip the cream together with the icing sugar till stiff peaks.
Then mix it with the mascarpone until you have a moussy mixture.
Now, mix the fresh orange juice with the strawberry sauce and deep the ladyfingers in it. If you don’t have enough mixture, make some more. Avoid over dipping¬†¬†because they will get soggy.
Place a layer of the ladyfingers in your tin or a bowl. Then spread the layer of the mascarpone/ cream mixture. Add a layer of strawberry slices on top. Repeat until you have reached the edge.

Now, the longest part: leave to stand in the fridge for at least 1 hour. Before serving, you can sprinkle some cacao powder on top, but I prefer to keep it strictly fruity :)
