Raw Tiramisu

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

With a beautiful Italian mother-in-law who is a wonderful cook, it is no surprise that we love playing around with traditional Italian recipes, and incorporating more nutrition into them where possible.

We love this version of Tiramisu which is rich in healthy fats, flavour & texture, with the delicious lingering after-taste of cold drip coffee!

Vegan, gluten free, raw.   

We use organic ingredients and activated nuts.

You will need 2 parchment lined loaf tins.
