I know it's not the traditional tiramisú, but seriously, the italian traditional recipe is prepared with lots of egg yolks and sugar. This one is totally healthy. Maybe mascarpone cheese tastes better than ricotta but I really prefer a healthy indulgence than a guilty one, so I recommend this recipe!

If you're a fan of the classic Italian dessert Tiramisu, try this quick, lower-calorie variation the next time you need a dessert in a hurry. Both types of ladyfingers—spongy and crunchy—work well.
7 Reviews for Baby Tiramisù
This was good, but I'd hardly call it tiramisu. I used a bit of rum instead of vanilla.
This was really good. I made it quite a bit of trepidation due to the other reviews, but it was really good. My boyfriend loved it too. I did use semi-sweet chocolate chips instead of bittersweet. I did refrigerate the leftovers and the cheese stayed fine, but the drizzled coffee made the Ladyfingers disgustingly mushy and they fell apart. Next time, I won't make leftovers, but certainly recommend this recipe.
This dessert is easy to make and pretty tasty if you don't compare it to regular tiramisu. Ricotta tends to have a grainy texture no matter what you do. Chocolate drizzle is a nice touch, but if you are used to marscapone, you won't get that velvety mouthfeel. Still it's a pretty good dessert if you are on a diet.
The ricotta cheese started becoming crumbly after a while, making the consistency weird and making the desert taste funky. Best eating upon making, when the ricotta is still fluffy. Also, not even close to the real thing. It would be better to subsitute cream cheese for this desert also: it might actually stay smooth and taste more authentic.
