HG's Turbo-Tremendous Tiramisu

'Mis' America!

We've made our guilt-free tiramisu even BETTER. Check out this updated recipe for the classic Italian dessert. MAMMA MIA, is it GOOD!!!

Ingredients:
1 tsp. instant coffee granules
1 tsp. sugar-free French vanilla powdered creamer (like the kind by Coffee-mate)
2 no-calorie sweetener packets (like Splenda or Truvia)
1 tbsp. Jell-O Sugar Free Fat Free Vanilla Instant pudding mix
1/4 cup fat-free ricotta cheese
1/4 tsp. vanilla extract
1/4 cup Cool Whip Free (thawed)
6 ladyfingers (like the kind by Specialty Bakers; found in the produce or bakery section)
1 tsp. unsweetened cocoa powder

Directions:
In a glass, combine coffee granules, creamer, 1 sweetener packet, and 1/4 cup very hot water; stir to dissolve. Add 1/4 cup cold water. Transfer 2 tablespoons of the mixture to a medium bowl.

Add pudding mix to the medium bowl and stir until mostly smooth. Mix in ricotta cheese, vanilla extract, and 1 sweetener packet. Fold in Cool Whip.

Place 3 ladyfingers side by side in a wide bowl (or on a plate). Drizzle with half of the remaining coffee mixture, about 3 tablespoons. Evenly spread with half of the pudding mixture; sprinkle with 1/2 teaspoon cocoa powder.

Evenly layer with remaining ingredients: 3 ladyfingers (side by side), coffee mixture, pudding mixture, and 1/2 teaspoon cocoa powder.

Refrigerate until chilled, at least 1 hour. Enjoy!

Fight it! Tiramisu, Average

Shed a Tir'...

Why is tiramisu so hard to resist at restaurants? Maybe because it's not the kind of treat you'd ordinarily make at home. Sure, you may whip up a cake now and then, and anyone can throw together an ice cream sundae, but tiramisu can seem intimidating. Warning: Those huge bricks of restaurant tiramisu are loaded with fat and calories! And it's TOTALLY easy to make this schmancy dessert at home... as long as you've got our recipe, of course! Mix up the creamy part, saturate some ladyfingers, and layer it all up. The result is a HUGE dessert that's big enough to share -- not that you have to! It's comparable in size to conventional recipes, but the calorie and fat counts are teeny tiny in comparison. And you will not believe how AMAZINGLY delicious and decadent it tastes. Hope you have room in your life for a new favorite dessert!
