Summer Tiramisu

Prep Time30 mins
Course: Dessert
Servings: 10 slices


  • 2 packages savoiardi cookies lady's fingers or boudoir fingers in English
  • 8 cups fresh strawberries
  • 1/2 liter whipping cream
  • 500 gr greek yogurt plain or vanilla flavor
  • 3 tablespoon sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract only needed if you use plain greek yogurt
  • 1/2 carton fresh orange juice


  • Whip the cream with the sugar and the vanilla essence. The vanilla essence is, of course, not necessary if you chose vanilla flavored greek yogurt. I usually add 3 to 4 tablespoons of sugar to the mix, but it is really quite personal: if you like it sweeter, add more, if you like it less sweet, stick to only a couple. Once it is ready, add the greek yogurt and stir gently until you obtain a smooth mixture.
  • Once you are finished with that, place the mixture in the fridge and take care of the strawberries. Now, they must be fresh strawberries, not frozen! Wash them and slice them or dice them, if you prefer them that way.
  • Now all your ingredients are ready to be assembled into our Summer tiramis├╣. In a medium sized oven or cake dish with borders a couple of inches high, start layering the cookies soaked in orange juice, the cream and the sliced strawberries. Repeat two or three times, depending on the size and depth of your dish. You should always end with a layer of cream, to be decorated with some more fresh strawberries and, if you are into it, some white or dark chocolate shavings.
  • Place in the fridge to set for a couple of hours and voil├á, the Summer version of a classic is ready to be enjoyed!
