Olive Garden Tiramisu Low-Fat Recipe

Wednesday, January 5, 2011

1 cup cold low-fat milk (1 percent fat)
1 envelope unflavored gelatin
3 envelopes Dream Whip Mix
4 ounces Philadelphia fat-free cream cheese, softened (or reduced fat)
6 tablespoons granulated sugar
24 ladyfingers (3-ounce package)
1/2 cup cold espresso (or strong coffee)
1/4 cup Kahlua coffee liqueur
2 teaspoons cocoa powder

 1. Measure 1 cup of milk, remove 1/4 cup, and set the rest aside. In a medium bowl, combine the 1/4 cup of milk with the gelatin. Let the mixture sit for 5 to 10 minutes, then microwave on half power for 1 1/2 minutes, or until the gelatin dissolves. Set this mixture aside to cool for 5 minutes.

2. In another medium bowl, beat together the softened cream cheese and the sugar. Add the gelatin/milk mixture and beat until smooth.

3. Pour the remaining milk into a large mixing bowl. Add one envelope of Dream Whip at a time to the milk and beat after each addition for about 2 minutes until the mixture is light and fluffy.

4. While beating the Dream Whip on high speed, add 1/3 of the cream cheese mixture at a time. Mix about 1 minute or until it is well blended and smooth. Set aside while preparing the ladyfingers.

5. Combine the espresso and Kahlua in a large, shallow bowl. One-by-one, quickly dip each ladyfinger in the espresso. The ladyfinger will soak up the espresso/Kahlua mixture like a sponge, so dip quickly.

6. To assemble the tiramisu, arrange half of the soaked ladyfingers side-by-side in an 8x8-inch baking dish. Cover the fingers with half of the cream cheese mixture and spread carefully with a spatula until smooth and flat. Arrange the remaining ladyfingers on the cheese mixture the same way as the first layer. Cover the cake with the remaining cream cheese mixture and smooth.

7. Put a couple teaspoons of cocoa powder into a sieve and tap it over the top of the tiramisu to dust it with a light, even coating of the cocoa. Cover the tiramisu and chill it for at least 3 hours so that it sets up. When you're ready to serve, slice it into 9 even squares.

Serves 9.
