When it comes to desserts, we all have our favorites! While I’ve gone through phases with drinking coffee, I actually have an affinity for coffee based desserts. Needless to say, I’m all about Tiramisu! While infatuated with this dessert, I never tried to create a vegan version as I’ll be quite honest…
This dessert is such a staple, so good when done right, that I thought there is no way you could even come close to the real deal with a vegan version, but I was completely wrong!
Recreating desserts to be vegan is typically seamless. However when the recipe features egg whites, the anxiety sets in as there is only one vegan substitute to get the same effect and there are no guarantees. If you know anything about Tiramisu, it features lady fingers, which include egg whites to keep them light and fluffy enabling them to soak up the flavors like a sponge. Many choose to buy a ready made option to skip making them from scratch. Even if that’s your approach, there is still no vegan option to date.
So can you just exclude the egg white and use a vegan egg substitute? You can, but you’ll end up with more of a cookie like texture, which won’t work for tiramisu.
In non vegan recipes you can easily sub a traditional egg with everything from applesauce to bananas or simply use a vegan egg powder. However, when it comes to egg whites your best bet is aquafaba! I tested 2 variations of vegan Lady Finger cookies and really struck gold with using aqua faba. It mimics the texture, enhances the flavor and is so easy to work with.
Once I nailed the Lady Finger Cookies I was searching for more ways to enhance the flavor and decided to incorporate So Delicious Dairy Free’s Oatmilk Creamer. On the heels of oatmilk’s continued rise in popularity, So Delicious Dairy Free has recently launched NEW Oatmilk Creamers. The brand’s latest innovation brings the creamy taste of oatmilk to your cup of joe. Just like all So Delicious products, they truly nailed the new creamers!
If you followed along during my pregnancy I became enamored with oats. You can easily grind oats to create a flour and can substitute it for white flour in just about any recipe. Since the dessert is coffee based, the oat creamer paired seamlessly in both the cookies and whipped cream layer, provided more flavor for the dish and allowed me to skip added sugar given the sweetness it already has!
Each So Delicious Oatmilk Creamer is dairy-free, nut-free and soy-free. The new creamers are also free from artificial colors and flavors, as well as Vegan Action Certified and Non-GMO Project Verified.
Looking to make this gluten free? No worries! So Delicious Oatmilk Creamers are crafted using gluten-free oats. Find the product in three oat-mazing flavors: Original, Vanilla and Limited Edition: Snickerdoodle
The final result of this dessert was hands down, amazing! The cookies and cream later have the perfect texture, it packs a ton of flavor, can easily be made in bulk, the cream layer is rich and filling given the healthy fat and protein content, it’s perfect for any season, perfect for entertaining, has aesthetic appeal, and I can honestly say, it’s my number one favorite vegan recipe I’ve ever created!
