I created this recipe some years ago, when I got the cravings for creamy and sweet tiramisu. The preparation is super easy, since I use vegan cookies from the store. During the cold months I like to take Christmas cookies, that I find in most shops in Europe.
I also use coffee that you can easily substitute with decaffeinated coffee, if children want to enjoy the tiramisu as well.
The same goes for the almond liquor/amaretto. If you don´t want to use alcohol, either prepare it without or use liquid almond aroma.
The tiramisu tastes the best, if you let it sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes before serving!
Note: Even if you and your friends usually don´t eat vegan food, this tiramisu is a light (low-cholesterol) alternative to traditional tiramisu, which is made with mascarpone and raw eggs!
Pour your plant-based milk in a pot. Add the sugar and bring the milk to boil. Mix the cornstarch with a small amount of water, until it dissolves. Pour the cornstarch/water into the pot and stir the milk, until the mixture start to get thick and creamy. Add the yogurt and stir the mixture again. Put the custard aside.
Mix coffee and almond liquor.
Take a deep pan/plate and put a layer of cookies on the bottom. Drizzle it with the almond/coffee and cover it with a layer of custard. Put another layer of cookies on top. Drizzle them with coffee and add another layer of custard. Keep going until you run out of ingredients.
The top layer needs to be custard, that you dust with cocoa!
