Tell me about this unbelievably delicious strawberry tiramisu:

This strawberry tiramisu recipe is my absolute favorite make-ahead chilled dessert of the summer, and let me tell you why you’re going to love it too.

We’re using fresh strawberries that are roasted to create a super sweet and juicy strawberry sauce that’s almost like a strawberry syrup with sliced strawberries that then soaks in and flavors the homemade ladyfingers!

Speaking of which, yes, we’re making homemade ladyfingers (that are vegan, so they’re entirely eggless and dairy free!), but don’t let that scare you! This is the easiest ladyfinger recipe that I even use in my top rated vegan tiramisu recipe (based off of my Italian great grandpa’s recipe!).

Now let’s talk about the flavors: traditional tiramisu is rich with coffee, alcohol, and cocoa powder that blends so well with the cream mascarpone. We’re taking the best of these flavors. Then making it a lighter and fresher dessert of the summer with a fruity twist (like my banana pudding tiramisu!).

Think lush creamy mascarpone with sweet roasted strawberries and a vanilla “buttery” biscuit cookie soaked in strawberry milk (that’s right! No coffee no alcohol here!). It’s heavenly.

This entire recipe is also undetectably made without eggs and without dairy. Yep, you won’t believe this is a vegan strawberry tiramisu! There are no egg yolks in the mascarpone cream (which is also all dairy free, thanks to my homemade vegan mascarpone!). And even the ladyfingers are eggless!

Plus we’re serving this strawberry tiramisu recipe in mini serving cups for the cutest individually served chilled Italian dessert of the summer!

TL;DR – Key components:

  • Eggless ladyfingers: Don’t worry- they’re not as hard as they look! Honestly, no one can tell the difference too. My 82 year old grandmother (the daughter of my great grandpa) was so impressed with my ladyfingers, she said she would have never known they were vegan if I hadn’t told her!
  • Mascarpone cream: How do you make vegan creamy mascarpone cheese? It’s so easy actually (and made the traditional way that real mascarpone cream is made!). It’s light, creamy, refreshing and full of buttery sweet vanilla.
  • Roasted strawberries: This is my favorite part of the recipe. We’re roasting the strawberries to really caramelize the sugars and make an even sweeter yet light strawberry tiramisu. It’s so easy, and just elevates the recipe that much more. 
  • Fresh vegan whipped cream: The vegan whipping creams these days are truly incredible. I love using Califia, Silk, or Plant Crock, but you can also use coconut cream. Then we dust with some powdered freeze dried strawberries to finish it off (like what we use in my strawberry buttercream frosting– that’s absolutely amazing on my vegan strawberry cake!).

Is this strawberry tiramisu vegan?

Yes, this strawberry tiramisu is naturally vegan! Because we’re omitting both eggs and using dairy free products, you can rest assured that this roasted strawberry tiramisu is also vegan (as is every recipe on this site! Including my classic tiramisu 🙂 ).

If you want to just make this an eggless tiramisu and not dairy free as well, some readers have success swapping in dairy products (such as classic mascarpone cheese). However, I can’t speak to this, as I have not personally tested it (since I am, indeed, vegan!). 

Overview: How to make strawberry tiramisu:

For the full written instructions and ingredient measurements, see the bottom of this post in the recipe card. You can also hit the “jump to recipe” button at the top of this post! Here, we’ll go over a brief overview of the steps, along with providing visuals for a better understanding of the recipe.

Recipe tips:

  • Make the ladyfingers and mascarpone cream the day before: This will save you time and pressure in the kitchen so that the day of assembly, you can just worry about assembling! Plus, ladyfingers taste best when they’re a day old anyways- they’ll soak up more strawberry milk!
  • This strawberry tiramisu does NOT contain alcohol nor coffee: But if you’d like to use a strawberry tea steeped in hot milk, that would be really lovely! You can also add in an amaretto liqueur if you’d prefer!
  • Roasted strawberries will offer a better consistency! Of course, you can just use fresh strawberries, but I prefer the flavor and texture of roasted strawberries. The strawberries become nice and soft, and the juices will marinate with the ladyfingers as well, which adds more flavor!
  • Swap in your favorite berries: If you don’t want to make strawberry tiramisu, you can absolutely swap in fresh blueberries or fresh blackberries for every component that is strawberry! Even the freeze dried strawberries!
  • Want some chocolate incorporated still? You can use cocoa powder instead of strawberry powder as the topping!

Can I make this with gluten free ladyfingers?

Absolutely! So the homemade vegan ladyfingers actually have a gluten free option- I made them with King Arthur Measure for Measure gluten free flour, and those are actually the cookies pictured.

But in my ladyfingers post, I used all purpose flour- literally undetectable in look and texture, right? It’s amazing!

Can I make this as a regular sized tiramisu instead of in single serving cups?

Yes, you can! If you don’t want to make single serving tiramisu cups, you can absolutely make a full sized strawberry tiramisu, and even pipe the ladyfingers as you would in their full sized regular shape. 

You’ll just need to double the recipe, and use an 8×8 baking dish to assemble 🙂

Make ahead + storage options:

I recommend making the ladyfingers and mascarpone cream the day before you want to assemble and serve the strawberry tiramisu. You could also assemble the day before serving as well!

This strawberry tiramisu keeps best in the fridge for up to 3 days when stored in an airtight container.

This roasted strawberry tiramisu is layered with the easiest homemade eggless ladyfingers soaked in a dairy free strawberry milk, roasted strawberries, dairy free mascarpone cream, and fresh dairy free whipped cream! This twist on the classic Italian dessert is the best way to use up ripe strawberries!



Eggless Ladyfingers:

  • 1 cups (125 grams) all purpose flour or sifted gluten-free 1-to-1 baking flour (if doing gluten-free, add in 1 tsp arrowroot powder)
  • 1 tbsp (10 g) cornstarch or arrowroot starch
  • 1/2 tbsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 cup (60 mL) aquafaba/chickpea brine
  • 1/3 cup (75 g) granulated sugar, divided
  • 1/2 tsp cream of tartar
  • 2 tbsp dairy free yogurt or unsweetened applesauce, room temperature
  • 1 tbsp melted vegan butter or avocado oil, room temperature
  • 1/2 tbsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1/8 tsp almond extract

Strawberry milk:

  • 1 cup (240 mL) dairy free milk, such as oat milk, soy milk, or almond milk
  • 1 ounce bag freeze dried strawberries, divided
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup

Vegan Mascarpone Cream:

Roasted strawberries:

  • 1 pint fresh strawberries, washed and sliced
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice (about 1 lemon)
  • 3 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Vegan whipped cream:

  • 1/2 cup (120 mL) vegan heavy cream, cold
  • 2 tbsp granulated sugar


  1. Tip: I recommend making the ladyfingers and the mascarpone the day before you want to assemble the tiramisu. Everything can be made on one day, but ladyfingers are best when they’re a day old, so it will make for a more flavorful strawberry tiramisu!*
  2. Prep: Make the ladyfingers according to instructions,  as well as the vegan mascarpone. For the ladyfingers, I piped them into round cookies, about 1″ in size. You should yield 16-20 biscuits.Once the mascarpone has cooled, you can begin to assemble your tiramisu.
  3. Roast the strawberries: Preheat the oven to 375F, and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. In a bowl, toss the sliced strawberries with the lemon juice, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Spoon the strawberries onto the baking sheet, and roast the strawberries in the oven for 15 minutes. Once roasted, remove from the oven, and allow the strawberries to cool for 5 minutes. Then transfer back to the bowl, and set aside.
  4. Make the strawberry milk: Blitz the freeze dried strawberries in a food processor or blender until they resemble a fine powder. Remove about 1/3 cup of the strawberry powder to reserve for the topping of our tiramisu. Cover the powder, and set aside. Then return to the food processor- add in the milk to the food processor, along with the maple syrup, and blend for 30 seconds until combined. Pour the strawberry milk into a bowl that you will use to dip the ladyfingers in.
  5. Make the mascarpone cream: In a medium bowl, use a hand mixer to cream together the vegan butter and mascarpone until creamy, about 2-3 minutes. Then add in the powdered sugar and vanilla extract, and mix again just until combined and there are no more clumps of powdered sugar.
  6. Assemble the tiramisu cups: Grab 3-4 small cups to assemble your strawberry tiramisu cups. Take one ladyfinger cookie and soak it in the strawberry milk. Place the cookie into the bottom of one cup, and repeat with a second cookie. Then scoop about 1/4 cup of roasted strawberries with the juices on top, followed by 1/4 cup to 1/3 cup of mascarpone cream. Repeat with another layer of cookies, strawberries, and mascarpone cream. Then repeat the whole process for the remaining tiramisu cups.
  7. Chill: Cover the cups with a piece of plastic wrap, and place into the fridge to chill for 1-2 hours.
  8. When ready to serve: Make the vegan whipped cream. In a large bowl with a hand mixer or in a stand mixer with whisk attachment, begin mixing the heavy cream on high speed until stiff peaks start to form, about 1-2 minutes. Then while mixing, add in the 2 tablespoons of granulated sugar.
  9. Top and enjoy! Spoon the whipped cream on top, and dust with the reserved strawberry powder. Serve immediately cold and enjoy!
