Well I don’t suppose ANY Tiramisu is going to be fat-free and still taste like Tiramisu. But this recipe is certainly lower in fat than some of the totally delicious, totally decadent Tiramisu recipes around! It is classified by “The Australian Women’s Weekly” as being medium GI, so at least it's not through-the-roof high GI!. Adapted from “The Australian Women’s Weekly” website.

This was very good. I really liked how the flavours combined, and absorbed. Usually when I make this desert, I let it sit overnight so the flavours blend more, so thats what I did. I would reccomend making this a day ahead.
