Low FODMAP speculaas tiramisu

My family in law from Slovenia came to visit us for the first time in Holland a few weeks ago. Because they had never been to Holland before, we made a kind of traditional Dutch dinner for them.

Pumpkin soup as a starter, Dutch beef stew with grilled vegetables and potatoes as a main dish. For dessert, I was thinking to make a low FODMAP speculaas tiramisu because that was a recipe that I still wanted to make for the blog.

Of course this is more an Italian recipe, but everybody always loves this as a dessert and because I used speculaas it still got a little Dutch touch. Speculaas is a traditional Dutch cookie.

They really liked the Dutch dinner and the speculaas tiramisu was gone in no-time. A successful recipe! Perfect for a Dutch St. Nicholas celebration or as a dessert at the Christmas dinner.

The lactose-free mascarpone that I use in this recipe is not so easy to find yet in the Netherlands. I have only managed to get it when I order it online at the supermarket.

What you can do, if you cannot find lactose-free mascarpone, is make the recipe with normal whipped cream and mascarpone and take a lactase pill when you eat the tiramisu.

Or you can use lactase drops to make the mascarpone and whipping cream low in lactose. You’ll need 3 lactase drops for the whipping cream and 10 for the mascarpone.

Put the mascarpone and whipping cream in two separate bowls and stir in the drops. Stir very well, cover the bowls and put them into the fridge for 24 hours.

After 24 hours 80% of the lactose will be dissolved and the product will be safe to use for most people with a lactose intolerance. You can check Intoleran’s website for more information on how this works.
