Strawberry tiramisu is the fresh, light variant of the classic Italian tiramisu perfect for spring and summer season. This sweet, soft recipe calls for fresh juicy strawberries, ladyfingers and mascarpone cheese – no alcohol or coffee needed.

In our no-bake strawberry tiramisu, we soaked the ladyfingers biscuits in a strawberry and orange syrup, then layered alternating with a spread of delicious, smooth mascarpone cheese. Finally, we decorated this dessert with slices of fresh strawberries and a few mint leaves, for a simple but impressive result. This is a great make-ahead recipe, you can assemble it the day before so that the ladyfingers better absorb the flavor of the strawberry syrup and become even softer.

You can enjoy the strawberry tiramisu as a dessert at a family lunch or dinner with special guests, as it is very light. For a decadent version, try also our chocolate strawberry tiramisu.

Tips for making No-Bake Strawberry Tiramisu

For a more impressive dessert, assemble the strawberry tiramisu in individual cups.

Use room mascarpone cheese and eggs at room temperature.

Make sure your ladyfingers are hard. The soft ones could get mushy if you make the recipe ahead of time.

Choose ripe but firm strawberries, so they will be easy to slice and you will not run the risk of them falling apart.

If you want to make a strawberry tiramisu without raw eggs, you can combine mascarpone with cream, sugar and vanilla extract.

For a boozy strawberry tiramisu, you can add rum, prosecco or maraschino to the syrup.

You can also sprinkle the strawberry tiramisu with unsweetened cocoa powder, coconut flakes or sliced ​​almonds.

How to store Strawberry Tiramisu

Strawberry tiramisu can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 days, covered with cling film or inside an airtight container.
