    Default Tiramisu!

    I tried this Weight Watchers recipe a couple weeks ago and it is YUMMY and only 4 points a serving!!!

    Ingredients

    10 oz angel food cake
    8 oz fat-free cream cheese
    4 oz light cream cheese
    1/2 cup(s) sugar
    1 tsp vanilla extract
    2 tbsp unsweetened cocoa
    1 oz semisweet chocolate
    4 fl oz brewed espresso

    Instructions

    • Using a serrated knife, cut angel food cake into 12 equal slices; set aside.
    • In a mixing bowl or food processor, combine both cream cheeses, sugar and vanilla. Mix until blended and smooth. Combine cocoa and grated chocolate in a separate bowl; set aside. Pour espresso into a shallow dish.
    • Dip 4 cake slices into espresso mixture and turn to coat. Place slices crosswise in bottom of an 8-inch loaf pan and press cake down to coat bottom (break up cake if necessary to coat surface).
    • Gently spread 1/3 cream cheese mixture over cake layer. Sprinkle with 1/3 cocoa mixture. Repeat procedure with remaining cake slices, cream cheese mixture and cocoa mixture to make 3 layers.
    • Refrigerate 2 hours. Cut into 8 pieces and serve.

    That sounds AWESOME, Michael. Thanks for sharing! Since I do not have an espresso machine, do you suppose I could substitute strongly brewed coffee?

    Actually, I think that's what we did, too!

    We also used Whole Foods' angel food cake because it's a little denser than most other stores'.

    I love tiramisu so will give this a try. I also do not have an espresso maker but could try some French Roast or similar. Has anyone tried a different kind of coffee? All ideas welcome.
