Lacto: Lowfat Tiramisu Recipe

Recipe Ingredients

1/2 cup sugar
1 cup nonfat cottage cheese
1 cup nonfat sour cream alternative
2 tbsp dark rum
8 oz carton vanilla lowfat yogurt
8 oz package neufchatel cheese
1 1/4 cup hot water *
1 tbsp instant espresso coffee granules
1/2 tsp instant espresso coffee granules
40 ladyfingers
1/2 tsp unsweetened cocoa

Recipe Preparation

I served the low-fat Tiramisu for Easter dinner yesterday. Everyone
seemd to love it. We had all had Tiramisu in restaurants and agreed
that the low-fat version didn't taste as heavy. But I think it's a
good substitute if you need low-fat (which I do). Here it is again -
it's from the October, 1993 issue of _Cooking Light_. NOTE: There
were only 4 of us at dinner, so I made only half the recipe, put it
into a deep covered casserole (about 8x8"), and refrigerated it with
the cover on. It was a lot easier than doing the thing with the

* Instead of the instant espresso, I just made an equivalent amount of
espresso and let it cool some.

Place first 6 ingredients in food processor with knife blade and
process until smooth; set aside.

Combine hot water and espresso granules in a small bowl. Split
ladyfingers in half lengthwise. Quickly dip 20 of the halves, cut
side down, in espresso and place, dipped side down, in the bottom of
a 9-inch square baking dish. Dip 20 more ladyfinger halves, cut side
down, into espresso, and arrange dipped side down, on top of the
first layer. Spread 2 C of the cheese mix- ture evenly over the
ladyfingers. Repeat procedure with remain- ing ladyfinger halves,
espresso, and cheese mixture.

Place toothpicks in each corner and 1 in the center of tiramisu to
prevent plastic wrap from sticking to cheese mixture. Cover with
plastic wrap and refrigerate for 3 to 8 hours. Sprinkle with cocoa
before serving.

This recipe makes 9 servings with 7.5 g fat each. I hate to think
how many grams of fat are in the real stuff!

Dieting tips

If you wish to become slim and boost your all round health, then, as any dietician will tell you, you really should eat a thoughtfully calculated sensible daily routine. At best, this should include five measures of grains and vegetables each day and also incorporate the right mix of important nutrients.
Some reduced carbohydrate diet tips:
* Know what is in your food Don't believe food packaging that boasts 'low carb' - check the real nutritional information on the back of the tin or packet. A good number of are only marginally less and in some instances still more than a competitors usual brand. In addition, beware of 'low sugar' and 'low fat' labels - 'low sugar' does not always mean 'low carb' - usually the carbs are identical.

* Don't ignore the fiber Reducing the carbs in your diet usually results in reduction in fiber also. Look at reduced carb recipes that are rich in fiber to restore the balance.
