    Tiramisu Teacups With Tia Maria

    A lighter version of the traditional Italian dessert, these individual puds can be made in advance.

    • Vegetarian
    • Preparation time: 20 minutes
    • Total time: 20 minutes 20 minutes

    Serves: 4


    • 250g tub Galbani Light Mascarpone
    • ½ x 500g pot 0% fat Greek yogurt
    • 2 tbsp golden icing sugar, sifted
    • 4 tbsp Tia Maria liqueur
    • 100ml strong espresso or filter coffee, cooled
    • 200g Corsini Cantuccini Chocolate Chip Biscotti
    • 25g Lindt Excellence Coffee Intense Dark Chocolate, coarsely grated
    • ½ tbsp cocoa powder


    1. In a large bowl, beat the mascarpone, yogurt and icing sugar together with a wooden spoon until thoroughly combined.
    2. Add the Tia Maria to the cooled coffee. Dip 12-16 of the biscotti into the liquid, one at a time, then immediately divide between 4 x 250-300ml teacups, placing the biscotti in the base of each.
    3. Spoon half the mascarpone mixture over the biscuits in each teacup. Dip the remaining biscuits, one at a time, in the liquid and place in equal amounts in each teacup. Sprinkle over a thin layer of grated chocolate.
    4. Divide the remaining mascarpone mixture between the teacups and top with a liberal dusting of sifted cocoa powder. Chill for at least 2 hours to allow the flavours to develop.

    Cook's tips

    This dessert can also be made in a large glass trifle dish. For a richer version, use full-fat mascarpone instead of the light version. For easy entertaining, make the day before and store in the fridge.
