Lighter Tiramisu
2 Hr

A classic tiramisu is unbeatable, but unfortunately, laden with fat and calories. Try our Lighter Tiramisu instead. We promise you're not missing anything, and your friends and family will love you even more for keeping it light!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (3-ounce) package ladyfingers, divided
  • 1/4 cup strong black coffee, chilled, divided
  • 1 (4-serving size) package sugar-free instant vanilla pudding mix
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1 (8-ounce) package fat-free cream cheese, softened
  • 2 cups fat-free frozen whipped topping, thawed
  • 1/2 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa

What to Do

  1. Split ladyfingers apart and line the bottom of an 8-inch square glass baking dish with half of them. Drizzle ladyfingers with 1 tablespoon coffee.
  2. In a large bowl, beat pudding mix and milk until thickened; stir in remaining coffee. Add cream cheese and beat until smooth. Spoon  pudding mixture evenly over ladyfingers. 
  3. Place remaining ladyfingers on top of pudding and top with whipped topping. Sprinkle with cocoa.
  4. Cover and chill 2 to 4 hours, or until ready to serve.

Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

The first time I made this, I could not find Lady Fingers so used Nilla Wafers instead. It was delicious! I made it again for friends using Lady Fingers and everyone RAVED about it. Simple Delicious this will be a go to recipe for a long time to come.

Question for the Mr. Food Test Kitchen Can I substitute non-fat dry milk (which I have reconstituted) for the whole milk? I love Tiramisu, but we don't use whole milk at home. Thank you.

Hi Rachel! You can definitely add reconstituted milk. Enjoy! :)

My family loved this light desert. It's a keeper! thank You!

I found the pound cake next to the strawberries. Thank You for that! Next question...I don't have a square glass 8" pan. Can I use a non-stick dark pan?

Yes, you can a dark, nonstick pan in place of a glass dish.

I couldn't find the lady fingers either in the cookie section or bakery section. Could I sub a yellow cake mix cut up into strips? I guess that would take away the easiness of this recipe. Any suggestions would be welcome.

Hi there! Sometimes the Test Kitchen finds lady fingers on the bread aisle as well. If you can't find lady fingers, we suggest using angel food cake or pound cake that's cut into slices as a delicious substitution. Enjoy!
