Vegan Tiramisu Recipe

Updated: Jun 21

Looking for make-ahead dessert? Whether you are a coffee lover or not, its hard to turn down on Tiramisu. Delicious light cream soaked in ladyfinger is a great cake to serve during the summertime or light dessert after the dinner.

This recipe may seem like many ingredients are involved but we are making everything from scratch. I will break down the important ingredients for you as well as the substitute for any ingredients.

Recipe Video:

Egg Replacer:

Yes, you can use flax egg by simply replace with 2 tablespoons of grounded flaxseed mixed with 4 tablespoons of warm water. It won't rise as much as egg replacer do but it still works great for this recipe. If you have other questions on different egg replacers, you can feel free to email me or comment down below.

Cream Cheese:

I had tried 3 brands of cream cheese and my favorite one is VioLife cream cheese. Tofutti cream cheese works well too. Just use one 8 oz container of Tofutti cream cheese replace of one 7 oz VioLife Cream cheese. But I highly skip out on any cream cheese that tasted sour or acidic like Miyoko. If you prefer using cashew for replacing cream cheese instead, soak 1 1/2 cups of raw cashew with water overnight and blend it in the highspeed blender with some water until it becomes smooth. *Note: I haven't try with cashew before, I can't provide you the taste but I can provide you the information on what you might be expecting. The cream will be a little runny but by far will make your tiramisu simple in ingredients.).


I love using Kahlua in the Tiramisu recipe because it gave the feeling of "Left me up" that people would expect from Tiramisu. But I highly skip the Kahlua if you are serving to the kid as well. Since the traditional Tiramisu recipe cooks their egg yolk with alcohol, some alcohol content are cooked down. But this recipe doesn't involve in cooking the Alcohol. You can simply replace it with the vanilla extract by just use the same amount for vanilla in the coconut whip cream and skip out the Kahlua. Add in 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract in coffee syrup and skip out the Kahlua.


Aquafaba whip act as an egg white replacer in the Traditional Tiramisu recipe. It helps the cream to be much lighter and more fuffy. I highly recommend having it in the Tiramisu. Going through the trouble of whipping the Aquafaba is worth it. But of course, if you want to leave it out, you can use extra 1 1/2 cup of coconut cream and extra coconut liquid. Skip adding the cream of tartar but still use the sugar.

Vanilla bean paste:

Yes, you can use vanilla extract with an equal amount. 1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste = 1 teaspoon of vanilla bean paste.
