Why is it that so many desert recipes mean kissing goodbye to your resolve to eat more healthily? Well, give a big ‘hello’ our Heavenly Prune Yogurt Tiramisu! Sure to become a firm favourite with the whole family, this super delicious desert is proof positive that watching your calorie intake doesn’t have to mean eliminating treats. Enjoy!

Ingredients

1 vanilla pod 
150 g California prunes  
250 g low fat yoghurt
200 g cream cheese 
7 tbsp. agave syrup 
100 ml espresso, brewed 
6 tbsp. rum (optional) 
200 g sponge fingers (finger shaped sponge biscuits) 
Unsweetened cocoa powder for sprinkling
Chocolate shavings and mint for garnishing
Other: springform pan, approx. 35 x 23.5 cm

Instructions

  1. Cut vanilla pod in half and scrape out seeds. Cut prunes into chunks and mix with yoghurt, cream cheese, agave syrup, vanilla seeds and 5 tablespoons espresso until smooth. Combine the remaining espresso with rum.
  2. Place half of the sponge fingers into the springform pan and generously soak with the espresso-rum mixture. Then spread half of the yoghurt cream on top, place remaining biscuits onto the cream, and sprinkle with remaining espresso. Spread remaining cream on biscuits and smooth. Refrigerate tiramisu for at least 4 hours to soak through.
  3. Then generously sprinkle cocoa powder on top of the tiramisu and serve garnished with chocolate shavings and mint.
