Tiramisu is a classic Italian coffee-flavored dessert. The name means “pick-me-up”, which I suppose is an acknowledgment of the coffee content. Or maybe it’s a reference to the inevitable improvement in mood that will accompany eating such a lovely treat. Why they call the cake ladyfingers is a whole other question…

Whatever the origin of the name, this is no light energy snack! This is some serious dessert. This coconut tiramisu is just further proof that anything worth doing, is worth doing raw and vegan. The best part is the feeling when you take a bite of the delicious coconut cream squishing out between the ladyfinger layers. Mm.

This recipe boldly makes use of a fresh young coconut, so make sure you watch some videos on how to safely crack these magnificent nuts. As a reward for your efforts, you’ll get some coconut water to enjoy later, too.

A great treat to make for date-night or other occasions when you’re really looking to impress. And of course, you don’t have to be a coffee drinker to love this decadent dessert!

  1. Cream: Be sure to soak the cashews for at least 30 minutes. An hour or two is recommended though.
  2. Use a knife, hammer or other device to open a young coconut (this part may be a little difficult, look up youtube tutorials if you need help on how to open a young coconut), keep the water (for drinks later) and scoop out the flesh, measure out ½ cup, and reserve the rest for other recipes later.
  3. Once the cashews are done soaking, drain the water and put it in a high speed blender like Vitamix. Add the young coconut meat, coconut oil, pure maple syrup, vanilla extract, vanilla powder/seeds and salt. Blend on full speed until everything becomes a thick cream, it should not have any lumps. The consistency should be completely smooth. I used a food tamper to help with this.
  4. Scoop out all the cream into a bowl, cover it with foil, then put it in the fridge for an hour while you prepare the next set of ingredients.
  5. Ladyfingers: Put the walnuts, dates, white grape juice, pure maple/agave syrup, vanilla powder, coffee extract, vanilla extract and rum extract in a high speed blender. Use a food tamper to help as the ingredients may be a little hard for it to work on its own. Blend on full speed until everything becomes wet and mushy. It’s alright if you have some chunky pieces.
  6. Spoon the mixture out and add the blanched almond flour and cacao powder. Mix it up until it’s completely even.
  7. Assembling: Align parchment paper on a 8×4 inch bread pan (or any other pan you want to use).
  8. Take the parchment paper out and lay it on a flat wooden surface. Spread the ladyfingers dough out and make two equal sized, flat rectangles/squares. Doing this now will save mess later. Be sure to have them evened out and flat on the surface. Flip them over so both sides can be pressed on the flat surface.
  9. Put the parchment paper with one of the flat dough in the baking tray, then take the cream out of the fridge, spoon half of the cream on top of the ladyfingers layer. Try and flatten it as much as you can and even it out.
  10. Once that is done, carefully grab the second ladyfingers rectangular/square and put it on top of the cream.
  11. Once again, scoop the second half of the cream on top of the ladyfingers layer, evening it out with your hands or a spoon. Try and have the surface as flat as you can.
  12. Use a small fine mesh strainer and put some cacao powder in it, to sprinkle evenly across the top of the tiramisu.
  13. Put it in the freezer for about 40 minutes to an hour to harden, then cut into squares and serve.
