Yogurt and Orange Tiramisù
8 thin savoiardi or lady fingers
1/2 cup strong coffee
170 g low fat Greek yogurt
1 egg white
1 organic orange
40 g powdered sugar
cocoa for sprinkling
Beat the eggwhite with sugar until firm.
Whisk the yogurt with finely grated orange zest of half an orange (make sure you leave one half ungrated so you can use it for decoration).
Add the beaten egg white to the yogurt and mix delicately with a wooden spoon or a spatula.
Prepare two glasses.
Break two savoiardi so that they fit to the bottom of your glass. Soak them a little in coffee and place in the glass. Do the same with the other glass.
Pour part of the yogurt mixture in each glass.
Squeeze the juice from half the orange (the half that you grated the zest from) and soak the remaining savoiardi.
Place them over the cream.
Put the rest of the cream over the savoiardi layer, cover the glasses with a piece of plastic wrap and leave them in the fridge for at least one hour.
Before serving, sprinkle some cocoa powder on top and decorate with thin orange slices.
Pairs Well With
This is a totally different kind of dessert, compared to the classical Tiramisù.
Mascarpone is substituted with low fat Greek yogurt, and I used only egg whites instead of whole eggs.
Really light and refreshing.
Prepared in single glasses so they are easy and elegant way to serve to your guests and family.
