Low FODMAP Tiramisu

I am probably one of the only people in the world who doesn’t like tiramisu. I never understood why people love it so much. I just don’t like the taste of those soft cookies with cream so much.

But I know that many people are crazy about tiramisu and that it is a favourite Christmas dessert. I think I never got so many requests for a dessert as for a low FODMAP tiramisu. So, tiramisu-lovers, this one is for you!

The tiramisu was tested by my entire family and they all loved it. My boyfriend (who doesn’t eat low FODMAP, gluten-free or lactose-free) even said that it was the best tiramisu that he ever had! And even I thought it wasn’t too bad 😉

How to make low FODMAP tiramisu

It isn’t difficult to make a low FODMAP tiramisu. As long as you have lactose-free whipped cream, mascarpone and gluten-free ladyfingers.

I used whipped cream and mascarpone from the brand MinusL and gluten-free ladyfingers from the brand Schär (savoiardi). If you can’t find ladyfingers that are gluten-free and low FODMAP, you can make these homemade gluten-free lady fingers

If you can’t find lactose-free whipping cream and/or mascarpone, you can also make normal whipping cream and mascarpone low lactose using lactase drops. 

I love using the lactase drops from the brand Intoleran. You simply add 20 lactase drops to 500 g mascarpone and 3 lactose drops to 125 g of whipping cream. Stir this through well. Then cover the mascarpone and whipping cream and put it into the fridge for 24 hours.

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

This low FODMAP tiramisu was requested a lot! A favourite dessert of many people. This version is gluten-free and lactose-free.


  • 125 ml lactose-free whipping cream
  • 75 g white sugar
  • 4 egg yolks
  • 500 g lactose-free mascarpone
  • Optional: 5 tbsp coffee liqueur
  • 200 ml espresso
  • 150 g gluten-free ladyfingers
  • 1 tbsp cacao powder
  • An oven dish


  1. Whisk the whipping cream with 15 g of the sugar until it stands up in stiff peaks.
  2. Whisk in another bowl the egg yolks together with the rest of the sugar until it forms a creamy mixture.
  3. Mix the mascarpone little by little into the egg yolk mixture.
  4. Gently fold the whipped cream into the mixture.
  5. Put the espresso into a deep plate and stir in the coffee liqueur, if you use it.
  6. Dip half of the ladyfingers into the espresso mixture and put them with the coffee side on top into the oven dish.
  7. Spoon half of the mascarpone mixture over the ladyfingers.
  8. Repeat the process for the other half of the ladyfingers.
  9. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  10. Dust with cocoa powder before serving.


I don’t like coffee liqueur so much, so I made my tiramisu only with espresso. This is also super tasty and handy when you want to make a child-friendly tiramisu.
This recipe contains raw eggs, so it is not suitable for pregnant women.
