Keto Tiramisu

I’ve always thought of tiramisu as such a “fancy” dessert. Maybe it’s the Italian name, or maybe it’s all those layers of rich deliciousness, but it seems like the kind of thing I should only order at the finest Italian restaurant.

It wasn’t until I decided to make my own Keto tiramisu that I realized this wonderful treat is surprisingly easy to whip up! It is absolute dessert heaven, and it only takes about an hour to prep before chilling.

You’ll simply mix together the cake ingredients, bake in the oven, then allow it to cool. Meanwhile, you can whip up the creamy filling. Finally, soak the cake in espresso, layer your tiramisu, and let it chill in the fridge for a few hours.

That’s it! But the final result is so delicious and so beautiful, everyone will think you spent all day making this special dessert.

And from the first bite, you’ll fall in love with the layers of espresso-soaked cake and indulgent cream topped with a dusting of cocoa powder. It’s so dreamy, it’s hard to believe it’s low carb.

This Keto tiramisu recipe is absolutely perfect if you want to impress a crowd. But if you try a bite and decide to keep the rest for yourself, that’s totally acceptable too!

What Is Tiramisu?

If you’ve never heard of tiramisu before, it’s a classic Italian dessert that is usually enjoyed chilled. It’s absolutely decadent!

The traditional version is made with ladyfingers that are soaked in coffee or espresso, then layered with a whipped mixture of mascarpone, sugar, eggs, and sometimes heavy whipping cream. The dessert is finished off with a sprinkling of cocoa powder.

The name tiramisu literally means “a pick me up.” Which is funny for a dish made from dense sponge cake slathered with rich cream… seems like more of a nap-inducing treat than a pick-me-up to me!

But, as you may have guessed, the name refers to the caffeine you get from soaking the cake layer in the coffee or espresso.

How Many Carbs In Tiramisu

Traditional tiramisu is made with ladyfingers and plenty of sugar. So, as you may imagine, it’s not very Keto friendly.

In fact, one serving of tiramisu from Olive Garden contains 54 grams of carbs! It also packs in a whopping 35 grams of sugar.

I can only imagine what it feels like to be jittery from the caffeine while also experiencing a sugar crash. Yikes.

That’s why I highly recommend making this Keto tiramisu instead! It tastes so indulgent, but with only 4 net carbs per serving, you can enjoy it totally guilt free.

Can You Store Keto Tiramisu?

Absolutely! Because this dessert is meant to be chilled anyway, it will keep very well in the refrigerator.

Simply store your tiramisu in an airtight container in the fridge. It will stay fresh for up to 4 days… that is, if it lasts that long.

Because it stores so well, it’s also an excellent dessert to make ahead of time! If you’re hosting friends and family, or you need a killer dessert to bring to a party, low carb tiramisu is a perfect option.
