The Delicious Raw Tiramisu

Yesterday morning, my parents were so eager to try some new desserts, and my mother specially, who is a marvelous cook and adores all kinds of desserts... so when it comes to raw... she just indulge in its preparation and invites friends and family to try it.

That Sunday morning, she decided to do the Tiramisu, which came up to be super delicious, and she has received really remarkable comments from our relatives who were visiting that evening.

Me, personally, been having an overloaded month, full with preparations of projects and presentations, so been kind of late on my blog and follow ups... though promise that won't last long... for so, and in order not to let this super outstanding Tiramisu get out of the way, both my mother and father together have helped in the preparation and shooting the pictures, so I can share it with you live on raw love recipes.

  2. Bonjour! We would love to make this recipe but are confused about what to do with the 8-hour soaked cashews. The 8-hour soaked almonds make the almond milk. The 4-hour soaked cashews make the frosting. What about the 8-hour soaked cashews? Thanks for any help you can provide!

    1. Hello Christi,
      While my mother was preparing the Tiramisu, she wasn't sure what to do with the 8 hours Cashew, so I contacted the Book writers and it seems it is a mistake. I removed these cashews!
      Thanks for mentioning it!
