    Easy No-Bake Tiramisu Recipe Using Low-Acid Coffee

    Easy No-Bake Tiramisu Recipe Using Low-Acid Coffee

    by Alex Brecher December 08, 2022

    Tiramisu is a traditional Italian dessert with coffee, cream, and ladyfingers. It is so decadent and delightful, and now, it can be easy. This recipe does not even require you to bake it! Use low-acid coffee, such as Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee, to keep it gentle on the stomach.

    Shortcuts to a Decadent Tiramisu

    • Store-bought ladyfingers. You can make your own ladyfingers or shortbread, but you can purchase them, too.
    • No-bake. This recipe uses mascarpone instead of eggs to make it creamy, so there is no concern with cooking the eggs or using raw eggs. 
    • Cocoa powder. Topping it with cocoa powder instead of shaved chocolate saves time and effort.
    • Coffee. Brew extra Rise and Shine Low-Acid Coffee in the morning, and your coffee will be ready to go when you are ready to put together this tiramisu. It will also have earthy, rich flavor without any extra effort or ingredients.

    This recipe is impressive, but could not be easier!

    Alcohol or No?

    You can make tiramisu with or without alcohol. The traditional recipe has alcohol, with typical choices including coffee liqueur, such as Kahlua or Tia Maria, which can increase the coffee flavor in the final product. Other alcohol choices can be marsala wine or brandy. 

    If you want to skip the alcohol but add more coffee flavor, you can brew your coffee to be stronger. You can also add some sprinkles of Rise and Shine Coffee to the top when you sprinkle on your cocoa powder.

    If you are having this tiramisu for an after-dinner dessert, you might also want to consider making it alcohol-free, since alcohol can interfere with sleep quality.

    Make Ahead Instructions: Tiramisu is even better when made in advance, allowing the flavors to blend! It will keep in the refrigerator for 2 to 3 days.

    Freezing Instructions: Make completely, but don't dust with cocoa powder. Cover tightly with plastic wrap and then tinfoil and freeze for up to 3 months. Thaw in the refrigerator overnight and dust with cocoa powder a few hours before serving. 

    Recipe for Easy No-Bake Tiramisu Recipe Using Low-Acid Coffee

    Makes 8 servings


    • 8 ounces of mascarpone cheese at room temperature
    • 1 ½ cups of heavy whipping cream
    • ½ cup of sugar
    • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
    • 1 ¾ cup of strong brewed Alex’s Low-Acid Organic Coffee - Rise and Shine
    • ¼ cup of coffee-flavored liqueur
    • 1 7-ounce package of lady fingers
    • Cocoa powder (baking cocoa) to dust on the top


    1. Whip the whipping cream in a large mixing bowl and beat it on medium-high speed until it starts to form peaks. Gradually add the sugar and vanilla while continuing to beat until stiff peaks form. Continue to mix on medium-low speed as you add the mascarpone cheese. Set the bowl aside.
    2. In a shallow bowl, mix the coffee and liqueur. Dip half of the lady fingers quickly into the mixture and then arrange them in an 8 x 8 pan or baking dish.
    3. Gently spread half of the mascarpone mixture over the lady fingers.
    4. Dip the rest of the lady fingers and arrange them over the mascarpone in the pan. Spread the rest of the mascarpone mixture over the lady fingers.
    5. Sprinkle or dust cocoa powder on the top of the dessert.
    6. Place it in the refrigerator and let it set for at least 4 hours or overnight.
    7. Serve and enjoy!
