Three glasses with gluten-free tiramisu with lemon curd

Gluten-free tiramisu with lemon curd in a glass

I am going to share several BBQ recipes with you in the next weeks. And if you ask me, a dinner party or a BBQ also needs to have a yummy dessert.

I have made a delicious summer dessert: gluten-free tiramisu with lemon curd in a glass. Yum!

This tiramisu is super handy to serve because you make it in glasses. Like this, you have handy servings directly. The lemon curd and fresh strawberries make this a real summer tiramisu. Delicious to end a BBQ with!

This blog was written in collaboration with Intoleran. Click here for more information about collaborations.

Low lactose and gluten-free tiramisu

This tiramisu is low lactose and gluten-free, so it is suitable for people who have to eat gluten-free, lactose-free or low FODMAP. Like this, everybody can enjoy this dessert.

To make this gluten-free and low lactose tiramisu, I use the following ingredients:

Gluten-free lady fingers

Of course, you need lady fingers for this tiramisu. You can buy gluten-free lady fingers from the brand Schär. On my blog, you can also find a recipe to make gluten-free lady fingers.

Can’t you find gluten-free lady fingers and don’t you have time to bake them yourself? Then you can also replace the lady fingers with another gluten-free and low FODMAP cookie, such as gluten-free digestives or gluten-free oat cookies.

Mascarpone and cream

The tiramisu layer in this dessert is made with mascarpone and whipping cream. Here in the Netherlands, it is not easy to find a lactose-free mascarpone.

Therefore I make my mascarpone and cream low lactose with the lactase drops from Intoleran. Intoleran is the new name of the brand Disolut.

Doing this is very simple. You put the cream and mascarpone in two separate bowls. To the mascarpone you add 10 lactase drops and to the cream 5 drops. You stir this together very well.

Then you cover both bowls and put them into the fridge for 24 hours. After 24 hours at least 80% of the lactose in the products has been digested and are they suitable to use for most people with a lactose intolerance.

In the table below you can see for which dairy products these drops work.

Make sure you prepare this tiramisu recipe the day before, by adding the lactase drops to the cream and mascarpone.

An overview from what you can make lactose-free with Disolact lactase drops

The Intoleran supplements

The lactase drops are a product from Intoleran. Intoleran makes supplements for people with food intolerances.

They have several supplements that are suitable for the low FODMAP diet and that help to better digest different FODMAP groups.

Their supplements have recently been certified by Monash University. This means that they are recognised by Monash University and are suitable for the low FODMAP diet.

Do you want to read more about which low FODMAP supplements are available? You can read more about it on this page by Intoleran.

I also wrote an extensive review about FODMAP supplements, where I explain how the supplements work and how I use them.

You can also find a blog on Karlijn’s Kitchen where Intoleran and I answer frequently asked questions about FODMAP supplements together.

Other ingredients

Usually you dip lady fingers in coffee for tiramisu. For this fresh summer recipe, I sprinkled them with orange juice.

Orange juice is limited low FODMAP, but in this recipe you use very little per person. Therefore this is low FODMAP.

It is also delicious to sprinkle the lady fingers with some limoncello instead of orange juice. Limoncello has not been tested on FODMAPs yet.

Therefore I only advice to do this if you have finished the reintroduction phase and know that you can tolerate a little bit of limoncello.

As a topping for the tiramisu I use fresh strawberries and lemon curd. You can also use raspberries or blueberries if you like.

You can buy the lemon curd in the supermarket, make sure it doesn’t contain any high FODMAP ingredients, or you can make it yourself with my recipe for homemade lemon curd.

Gluten-free tiramisu with lemon curd in a glass

  • Author: Karlijn
  • Total Time: 30 min
  • Servings: 4 1x
  • Diet: Gluten Free


A summer dessert: low lactose and gluten-free tiramisu with lemon curd and strawberries. Perfect for a summer night!


  • 5 gluten-free lady fingers (save one for garnish)
  • 50 ml (1/4 scant cup) orange juice*
  • 250 ml (8.5 oz) whipping cream
  • 250 g (8.8 oz) mascarpone
  • 2 tbsp sugar
  • 4 tbsp lemon curd (homemade or store-bought)
  • 8 fresh strawberries
  • 4 glasses
  • Intoleran lactase drops


One day before serving

  1. Put the cream in a bowl. Add 5 drops lactase drops. Stir together well.
  2. Put the mascarpone in a different bowl. Add 10 drops lactase drops. Stir as well. Stir the mascarpone a little extra because it is thicker. Make sure the drops spread through the mascarpone.
  3. Cover both bowls and put them into the fridge for 24 hours, so the lactose digest. 

The tiramisu

  1. Break the lady fingers into pieces and divide them over the four glasses.
  2. Divide the orange juice over the four glasses. Sprinkle it over the lady fingers.
  3. Whip the whipping cream with two tablespoons sugar.
  4. Stir the mascarpone until loosened and carefully fold in the whipping cream.
  5. Scoop a layer of the mascarpone mixture in each glass.
  6. Put a tablespoon of lemon curd on top of each glass.
  7. Cut the strawberries in slices and divide them over the glasses.
  8. Put the tiramisu in the fridge overnight or at least for 5 hours to set.
  9. Break one lady finger in pieces and crumbles it over the glasses before serving.


*This dessert is also great with 50 ml limoncello instead of orange juice. Limoncello has not been tested, so it isn’t sure if this is low FODMAP. Therefore I only advise using limoncello if you have already completed the reintroduction phase and you know that you tolerate a little bit of limoncello.
