Layer upon layer of silky dairy-free cream, fluffy sponge, airy chocolate mousse and rich chocolate ganache come together to make the best vegan tiramisu you’ve ever eaten.

Dairy cream has been replaced with coconut milk in this recipe to make the creamy layers. In order to make it firm enough to hold its shape, you’ll need to store the tins somewhere cool for 24 hours before you open them. This is so that the cream and water can separate and the cream can solidify ready to be whipped into the vegan tiramisu.

You only need the thick, creamy layer from the top of the can as adding too much of the coconut water will result in a thin, watery cream.

You’ll also need to use full-fat coconut milk as it has a higher fat content. We’d recommend looking for coconut cream from Thailand as this It tends to have a higher fat content and a better, less grainy texture.
