Deconstructed Gluten-Free Tiramisu

Typical tiramisu recipes consist of layered sponge cake soaked in coffee and sugary liqueur, separated by mascarpone cheese, then dusted in chocolate. This deconstructed tiramisu recipe takes the traditional Italian dessert and turns it on its head with a delicious dairy-free and gluten-free rendition. This tiramisu recipe is so simple and gorgeous, you’ll barely believe it’s good for you, too.

From avocados with monounsaturated fat to coconut milk and cream with clean saturated fat and medium-chain plant fat, this tiramisu recipe will satiate you in the most nutritious of ways. All these good fats also make this dessert anti-inflammatory, helpful for fat-burning, and a boon for your cognitive performance.

The recipe is also loaded with collagen protein, the main connective tissue in the skin and arteries. Bonuses: Collagen protein supports hair growth[1], and even alleviates joint pain[2], to name just a few of its benefits. Between all of these high-quality fats and proteins, this tiramisu recipe is sure to delight your belly and support your best-laid diet plans.
