    Beeramisu

    This light and dreamy dessert is a tasty alternative to the authentic Italian tiramisu. Not too sweet and made with cashew cream, it’s a contemporary version of an old favourite and equally fits the cliché, “a little pick-me-up.” This version does not include espresso, commonly found in tiramisu. We’ve made this with a coffee- and chocolate-flavoured stout or porter craft beer. Delicious!

    Tip

    For totally dairy-free chocolate, look for vegan dark chocolate.

    Serve this tasty dessert with a glass of coffee- and chocolate-flavoured stout craft beer or porter. Do not serve too cold, and make sure there’s plenty of carbonated topping.
