This Easy Raspberry Tiramisu is an alcohol-free, summery spin on a Classic Italian Tiramisu with fresh raspberries, a creamy mascarpone filling, and lemon-syrup soaked ladyfinger. An easy summer dessert for the whole family!
Guys, the ingredients for this Raspberry Tiramisu need to go straight onto your shopping list! You'll love this easy summery spin on the Classic Italian Tiramisu.
I love this easy fruit tiramisu because of what's in it: raspberries! Seriously, they must be one of my favorite fruits ever, along with cherries and bananas. Oh and maybe strawberries too. It's too hard to choose.
Raspberries are so delicate, sweet with just a bit of tartness. It is the perfect fruit for summer desserts if you ask me! And I also like the fact that they're hairy, it's funny. And I like funny things that people usually don't find funny at all.
Apparently, the hair protects the raspberries from being damaged by insects. Which makes me think that, if I had a garden, I would grow:
2. Basil - again. I think that's actually a whole basil field I'd need. A garden isn't large enough. (Pestoooo anyone?)
3. Raspberries. Because, remember, they're protected against insects. So I suppose it doesn't require a lot of work. (Yes, I'm totally lazy)
And then I'd plant a cherry tree. But that's a different story and I'd like to continue talking about this Easy Raspberry Tiramisu!
So this Easy Raspberry Tiramisu is perfect because of raspberries. I think we've established that. A second reason for making this raspberry tiramisu is, that it's very easy to make. Like pretty much every recipe on this blog.
You're probably tired of the traditional Italian Tiramisu with espresso and cocoa powder, right? I guess it's not the first time you've seen a Raspberry Tiramisu either, but hey, that's already a good change in my opinion.
Let's see, what your favorite fruit? Yes, you can only pick one! 😉

Easy Raspberry Tiramisu
This Easy Raspberry Tiramisu is a summery spin on a Classic Italian Tiramisu with fresh raspberries, a creamy mascarpone filling, and lemon-syrup soaked ladyfinger. An easy summer dessert that comes together super quickly and is also alcohol-free, aka. kid-friendly.
- 2 EXTRA FRESH large eggs white and yolk divided.
- ¼ cup sugar + 1 tbsp
- 8 oz mascarpone 230 g
- 1 lemon juiced
- 12 ladyfingers
- 1 lb raspberries fresh or frozen
In a large bowl, whisk egg yolks with sugar. Add mascarpone and 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Mix well.
In another bowl, beat the egg whites until stiff and gently add them to the mascarpone mixture.
In a small bowl, mix remaining lemon juice, 1 tablespoon sugar and 2 tablespoons warm water. Brush ladyfingers with this syrup and cut them into 3-4 pieces.
In 6 serving glasses, arrange a layer of ladyfingers, a layer of raspberries, a layer of mascarpone and repeat, ending with a layer of mascarpone.
Keep refrigerated for at least 3 hours. Garnish with fresh raspberries when ready to serve.
I forgot to add the second layer of ladyfingers on the pics... whoops! Don't do like me 😉
YUM! Berries and cream, no matter what combination are always delicious, but this looks AMAZING!
Ahaha thanks Sarah!!
Wow this looks amazing! I love tiramisu and love this version. Beautiful photos by the way--you are making me hungry over here.
Thank you so much Julia! I'm glad to make you hungry ahah
Oh my word... These look amazing! I absolutely adore raspberries (and basil and cherries!!!), so that makes this dish even more loveable! I've never bought mascarpone, so I'd be venturing into some new territory, for sure. But these look soooo worth it. Thanks for the gorgeous and delicious posts!
Thank you Andrea! YAY for raspberries!! Don't be afraid of using mascarpone, there's nothing tricky about it and it's delicious.
Instead of using lady fingers could you substitute them for pound cake? I would rather have it soft then crunchy. I've never made tiramisu so i dont know if the lady fingers will soften up.
I'm not sure pound cake would work well in this recipe. But don't worry about the lady fingers being too crunchy, they will indeed soften up a lot!
I really like the looks and the recipe I wonder about the egg yolks not getting cooked though. Are you mixing them in a double boiler? Did I miss something?
Hey Cheri! Sorry for the late answer! I'm using raw eggs in this recipe, no cooking.
While I love raspberrys too, my favorite fruit would probably be Champagne Mangos.
I am all over this raspberry tiramisu! And I really wish I had that awesome protective hair-thingy that raspberries have going on! My hair does not protect me from anything these days, really. Not even mosquitos #loserhair. Anyways, I will bookmark this one!
Hello, I am definitely going to make this, can it be frozen or how long can it be in fridge? Cheers Sarah
I wouldn't freeze it but you can easily make it the day before!
