First, a few words to describe this perfection … It is therefore a ketogenic Tiramisu with very low level of carbs! For those who follow the keto diet, here is a perfect recipe for any occasion: a birthday, an evening with friends, a dessert for a romantic dinner or so … no special occasion ! Well yes, we may just want to enjoy a delicious and frustration killer cake ! If you want to have other ideas for recipes, take a look at my super delicious Keto Chocolate Mousse. A lot of Sugar-free, max pleasure recipes are coming very soon on my blog.

At the risk of repetition and for those who don’t know the ketogenic diet, this recipe is SUGAR FREE! It is not with no added sugar, it is without sugar! It’s very simple, I use a sweetener instead! To best respect the keto diet, I use a sweetener “0 net carbohydrate”, it is very important. But for those, like diabetics or those who just want to reduce their sugar intake, you can use just about any low glycemic index sweeteners, while keeping in mind, that they are not equal at all and some represent a potentially health risks. I will discuss this topic in more detail in a future article.

This tiramisu cake is also suitable for people who follow a Low Carb High Fat diets (LCHF). Indeed, the biscuit is mainly composed of eggs and almond powder, and the cream is composed of Mascarpone and cream cheese.

Last but not least, this delicious cake is also gluten-free! Perfect for allergic and intolerant to gluten or those who prefer to avoid consuming it.

The traditional Tiramisu is made with Mascarpone cream, coffee and Ladyfinger (biscuit). For our recipe, it’s very simple, we replace the ladyfingers with a biscuit very low in carbohydrates and sugar-free, made from almond powder!

For the biscuit and the Mascarpone cream, I used here, as mentioned above, a liquid sweetener “0 net carbs”. You can of course use any “0 net carbs” sweetener that you have on hand, the bests being Erythritol, monk fruit or stevia. For the quantity, it will depend on the sweetening power of your sweetener. I put here a teaspoon (about 5ml), equivalent to 50 grams of regular sugar, but you can put more or less, depending on your taste preferences!

You can find the almond powder in any food store. But you can do it by yourself! It’s very simple: cook the raw almonds in the oven for 10 minutes at 180 °. Once cooked, Place the almonds, in the food processor, pulse until they’re ground into a sand-like texture. You can use a sieve to get a very fine powder! And here is a quick homemade almond powder!
