TIRAMISU CUPS (GLUTEN, SUGAR AND DAIRY FREE)
Tiramisu is a sophisticated, melt in your mouth, delicate and delicious dessert that is also extremely easy and fun to make! This particular recipe has no sugar, gluten or dairy and really takes your dessert to a whole new level. You really can't say this about many desserts! It looks very cute and pretty in it's little cup, and is definitely one of those few guilt-free desserts that impresses everyone.I like serving these cakes in small individual cups, since an added bonus is that there is no kids fighting over who's piece might be bigger, no mess cleaning, no slicing. You can just take the cup out of the fridge and immediately enjoy it! Served in small individual cups, this dessert is perfect for sharing!These mini tiramisu cups are incredibly creamy, flavorful, easy to make and will surely become the star at your dinner table! Note: If you don't own a double boiler, fear not- it's very easy to do with a heatproof metal or glass mixing bowl that fits on top of another pot filled with water. Bring two inches of water to a simmer. It's not necessary to boil the water because you’re going for gentle slow heat here. Place the heatproof bowl with your ingredients over it. You want to make sure it fits snugly but does not touch the water, otherwise it will get too hot.Enjoy!

Pour a small portion of hot coconut milk mixture into the eggs, whisking vigorously to temper the eggs. Then slowly pour the egg mixture back into the hot coconut milk, whisking continuously.Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens slightly and gets jiggly. Add honey and stir. Allow to cool and then transfer to the fridge.
WHIP THE CREAM
- Whisk or beat the coconut cream and 3 tablespoons of maple syrup until it thickens and peaks form. Be careful not to overmix as it could soften the cream.
