Low carb tiramisu

door Linda Terrizzi

Many people have asked us to post more low-carb recipes on our site. This 'low carb tiramisú' is -in our opinion- very suitable for that.

Are you not following a low-carbohydrate diet? Then try our Caribbean tiramisú with ponche crema once!

Limited carbohydrate vs low carbohydrate

In this recipe we make a distinction between 'carbohydrate-restricted' and 'low-carbohydrate'. The latter must fit into a diet in which you consume less than 20 grams of carbohydrates per day, of which 15 grams from vegetables. That is, for example, phase 1 of the Atkins diet. We call these diets "ketogenic" because the body goes into ketosis from consuming less than 20 grams of carbohydrates per day.

A low-carb version or 'low carb tiramisú' is very easy to make: You take the original recipe and replace the ladyfingers with low-carb sponge cake. Replace the sugar in the cream with sweetener and you're done! It becomes more difficult when you impose a 'ketogenic' diet, in which you should never consume more than 5 grams of carbohydrates from dairy. The recipe below is suitable for that!

tiramisú or cheesecake

Actually, this dish cannot really call itself tiramisú. After all, we don't make different layers of soaked cake and mascarpone cream. And the bottom is harder than you are used to with 'regular' tiramisu. So it's actually more like a cheesecake… or pudding… or… well – it certainly tastes really good!

Tip: Because with this recipe we already make a number of concessions with regard to the original ingredients (just think of the sugar and the long fingers!), It is important that the rest is of high quality. This way you can make the best coffee from freshly ground coffee beans and choose a good brand of mascarpone.

You make 1 'tart' of 20 cm (one layer) or half a cake with two layers from this recipe.

INGREDIENTS:

For the bottom:

  • 50 gr linseed, ground
  • 50 gr almond flour
  • 100 gr butter
  • 50 gr coconut flour
  • 50 gr erythritol, sucralose or other sweetener of your choice

For the filling:

  • 200 ml cream
  • 200 gr mascarpone or other cream cheese
  • 50 gr erythritol, sucralose or other sweetener of your choice
  • 100 ml strong coffee (espresso)
  • 2 tablespoons of dark rum
  • some cocoa powder to sprinkle
  • 8 leaves of gelatin or 15 g of powdered gelatin

PREPARATION LOW CARB TIRAMISÚ:

Line a baking tin of 20-22cm with baking paper.

First make the soil by mixing ground flaxseed with almond flour and coconut flour. Then add the sweetener of your choice and pour the melted butter over it.

Then stir it all together and place it in the baking tin. Press the mixture flat with the rounded side of a spoon, so that you get a firm layer.

Allow the bottom to set in the refrigerator for at least an hour.


Meanwhile, make the filling by soaking the gelatin in water for 10 minutes.

Do you use gelatin leaves? Then you can take plenty of water. When using powdered gelatin, use 2 tablespoons of water.

Now beat the whipped cream and then mix the cream cheese with it.

Then mix it into a smooth paste.

Then add the rum and sweetener of your choice.

Then heat the coffee until it boils. Now remove the coffee from the heat and after a minute add the gelatin.

Then beat with a whisk or fork until the gelatin is dissolved. Now add the coffee to the cream mixture and stir well again.

Pour this onto the pie crust and let it set in the fridge for about 6 hours. You now have a cake with one layer of bottom and one layer of filling.

Since the tiramisú is usually for one person, we like to cut the cake in half and place the two halves on top of each other. Your tiramisú will then look like the one in the photo.

Finally sprinkle the low carb tiramisú with some cocoa powder and possibly some sweetener. - Enjoy your meal!
