This is a classic tiramisu recipe with a modern twist. To make the tiramisu more fruity and interesting, we replaced cacao powder with an all natural wild blueberry powder. The end result is a delicious dessert that your guests will want to lick from the bowl.
We developed this recipe specifically for a nut-allergic friend. His reaction was inexpressible! Tiramisu is usually topped with cacao powder, but unfortunately, most cacao powders may have traces of nuts. This blueberry version tiramisu is 100% nut-free and safe even for those who are extremely sensitive to tree-nuts or peanuts.
If you are not allergic to nuts, and you love the cacao powder, feel free to mix it with the blueberry powder – together they make a delicious combo!
