Healthier Tiramisu for TWO (w Vegan option)

Its Life.

It seems like just yesterday that I had long hair reaching my waist, when I was seated with the most horrible person on earth, taught by the worst teacher in the universe. It seems like just yesterday that I told myself never ever to become a teacher when I grow up.

It seems like just yesterday that I was having the worst day of my life.

Time passes so quickly! There are so many parts of my life I can no longer remember and many others I don’t want to remember. But its now the time of my life to decide what the rest of my life will be and the parts that will make it. That is– the career I will have. Obviously I can never become a baker (neither good enough nor allowed), a teacher or a doctor or lawyer since I don’t do very well in my studies no matter how hard I try.


I had to narrow down the choices. Here is the list  with the ‘problem’ by the side.

  1. Food Science and Technology (only 50 places per year)
  2. Advertising 
  3. Psychology (may have problems getting a job)
  4. Nutrition (only available overseas)
  5. Product Design (not sure how much I’m really interested in it)
  6. Don’t know anymore.

Its just a reference. And since I have a ‘life plan’ for if-the-world-doesn’t-end-in-2012, I can actually do anything I don’t hate (since the list I hate contains most things).

And apparently, between the two best JCs in Singapore, the better one is the one your girlfriend will be in, according to the incredibly warped logic of my brother. (sorry that its irrelevant. I just had to comment about it)



Anyway, today I made a healthier version of Tiramisu! I’m only okay with Tiramisu but its great to know that I know how to make it. Its the second recipe I’m making for my “Request a Recipe Makeover” feature. 


Sorry for the runny-looking Tiramisu. I was in a hurry and skipped the refrigerating. 



I substituted the mascarpone cheese with coconut cream and cream cheese because mascarpone is incredibly expensive and the substitution opens up a vegan option. 

You can skip making the cake and use ready-made sponge fingers/lady fingers instead.

For VEGAN version, use vegan lady fingers (recipe here) and tofutti cream cheese instead of regular cream cheese. 



Have a great day.

    Hey, I stumbled across your blog a while ago. I like your posts – all very cool. Jiayou 🙂 I know what parents are like, most of all the: not good enough, not of a higher, more respectable social position issue. To be honest whatever you do now won’t necessarily affect your future. Do your best and do something you like!

      Wow, I feel like you read my mind! Yeah, my parents have strong opinions of what they want me to be, its hard to convince them I don’t want to be a lawyer/doctor/accountant. Thank you for your advice! Also great to see you stopping by, by the way 😀 😀

    This looks so yummy, and never mind about refrigeration! It looks like pudding pie the way it is (and my mom could tell you how much I LOVE pudding pie. It was a childhood DREAM of mine every summer! I would BEG my mom to make it!!!)
