Easy Entertaining – Lightened Up Tiramisu Shots

Light Tiramisu When life give you lemons, make lemonade. When Chobani sends you Greek Yogurt, make dessert!

If there is one thing we’ve learned over the years and really enjoy doing, is what we call recipe “makeovers”: basically what that means is, we take a recipe and modify it to make it suitable for people with certain dietary restrictions. We make it vegan, or kosher, or dairy free, or we lightened it up… You get the idea.

That’s an area where we can really put our creativity to use and have lots of fun experimenting. Even when the results aren’t what we expected, we still get a laugh out of it.  And that’s one of the greatest things about having a team mate in the kitchen: you can laugh and learn from your “failures” rather than getting upset and frustrated!

So here’s one of the easiest dessert makeovers you’ll probably ever find: a lighter version of the classic Italian Tiramisu. Not overly sweet, creamy (thank you greek yogurt!) and without raw eggs. With a hint of chocolate and, of course, a nice coffee presence.  Presented in little shot glasses to make it elegant and perfect for entertaining… but also for portion control.

You know, just in case you’re already thinking about New Year’s resolutions :)

Enjoy!
