Can you believe this yoghurt tiramisu parfait is the first recipe I’ve posted in over two months? You may have noticed that has been slowly transitioning into more allergy related posts, which was the goal of the blog when I first started it. Now that I am more confident about putting myself out there I’ve been able to share more allergy life stuff with you.
I still love to cook and want to continue sharing delicious and easy allergy-friendly food, but a little less frequently than before. Cooking is one outlet that helped me gain ownership of allergies. Especially since playing within the limits of my allergies helps me feel like I am never missing out. So no worries, recipes aren’t disappearing entirely!
Yoghurt Tiramisu Parfait
This Yogurt Tiramisu Parfait comes just in time for spring, mother’s day, and craving something sweet while desperately working on that summer body. Well, summer body may not be my primary concern, but staying away from sweets has been something I’ve been trying to do for my gut health and the fact that once I start there is no stopping. I have a mean sweet tooth and will seriously eat a whole bar of bakers chocolate (only safe chocolate I can readily get in Berlin… talk about desperate) in one sitting. When it comes to sweet treats, I can’t just have one.
This Tiramisu Parfait was my answer for something sweet, creamy, rich but not heavy, and chocolatey. It uses good quality cocoa like Rodelle Gourmet Baking Cocoa, labneh (strained yoghurt), and fruit to help balance out the sweetness. Of course, not everything can be 100% ‘healthy’, and this tiramisu stays somewhat traditional with the use of coffee soaked ladyfingers.
Make it Top 8 Free
I would have loved to bring you a top 8 free Tiramisu Parfait, but I have not been able to find an egg-free substitute for ladyfingers. If you know one, please share in the comments below.
→ For a gluten-free version, I know in Germany Schar carries ladyfingers.
→ For a dairy-free version, you can use a thick plant-based yoghurt or better yet make this yoghurt cheese from Go Dairy Free.

A lightened version of Tiramisu using good quality cocoa, labneh, and ladyfingers.
- 180g Labneh; or Greek yoghurt, skyr, thick plant-based yoghurt*
- 1/2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
- 1 tsp Maple Syrup
- 1/3 cup Coffee (cold)
- 1 tsp Cocoa
- 6 Lady Fingers
- 28 Raspberries
- 2 parfait glasses
- Combine the labneh/yoghurt, vanilla extract and maple syrup. Set aside.
- Mix the cocoa into the coffee using a fork; they will come together; it may take a little time for this to happen.
- To make the parfait break the ladyfinger in half and dip in the coffee for about 5 seconds on each side, or until soaked all the way through. For each parfait layer one coffee soaked ladyfinger, a spoonful of the yoghurt mixture, and then four raspberries. Repeat until all ingredients are used up, or the glass is full (3 layers).
- The last layer should be a dollop of labneh/yoghurt. Dust with cocoa and top with a raspberry.
Can be made up to 24 hours in advance.
*You want to use yoghurt that has a thick texture. Regular yoghurt will not work.
