Keto Tiramisu

 Keto Tiramisu (using Protein Sparing Bread)


If you haven’t noticed, I do not allow advertising on my site.

I just didn’t agree with some of the products that were advertised. They were keto products, but they were unhealthy and I would never personally eat most of the products. It was hard to say no to blog advertisements; they pay thousands of dollars a month, but I just felt uncomfortable about having the products I didn’t recommend on my website.

Instead, I have created a shopping list where you can find all the healthy ingredients that are difficult to find in the grocery store (and if you do find them, they are often very expensive).

I have done a lot of detective work and found the lowest prices on for all of the products I use and love. Everything from food, pantry items, kitchen tools, supplements, and skin products are on my list.

I rarely waste time in the grocery store because I find everything online for a way better price!

All you have to do is click on the words in my recipes and it will take you right to the correct item. If you add them to your cart I get a tiny commission that helps me afford to keep practicing recipes (Recipe experimenting can costing me a fortune!…but I love helping!).

I also have GREAT HOLIDAY GIFT IDEAS on the list!

Happy Shopping and THANK YOU for all your support!!!

  • 6 egg yolks
  • 1 1/4 cups powdered natural sweetener or allulose
  • 1 teaspoons stevia glycerite optional
  • 1 1/4 cups mascarpone cheese or cream cheese
  • 1 3/4 cups heavy whipping cream
  • 1/3 cup coffee sweetened to taste


  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened cocoa powder for dusting


  • PSMF LADYFINGERS: Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. In a clean, dry bowl, place the egg whites, protein powder, allulose, salt and cream of tartar if using. Whip on high until stiff peaks form. Place the batter in a 9x9 in grease baking pan. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until light golden brown and cooked through. Remove from oven and set aside.
  • FILLING: Combine egg yolks and sweetener in the top of a double boiler, over boiling water. Reduce heat to low, and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring constantly. Remove from heat and whip yolks until thick and lemon colored. Add mascarpone to whipped yolks. Beat until combined. In a separate bowl, whip cream to stiff peaks. Gently fold into yolk mixture and set aside.
  • Cut the crust off the psmf bread lady fingers and cut into 2 inch “fingers” and line the bottom and sides of a large glass bowl. Brush with coffee. Spoon half of the cream filling over the lady fingers. Repeat ladyfingers, coffee and filling layers. Garnish with cocoa. Refrigerate several hours or overnight.

“Good morning! This weekend marked a milestone in my journey. Not only have I lost half of my body weight but I wore a sleeveless shirt for the first time in 15 years! My 12 year old daughter pointed out that she has never seen me wear a sleeveless shirt….and added that I looked buff!

Thank you Maria and Craig Emmerich for all of your guidance! I am beyond happy to have found this way of eating and will never return to where I started. I am stronger, healthier, younger and feel fantastic. Keto on!

    This looks like my Christmas dessert..Now, do you serve this with a big spoon?

    ….and how big was your bowl? 🙂


  • Thanks Carolyn!

    I served it like a triffle and scooped it out with a big spoon.

    My bowl is quite big;) lol. It makes 12 servings;)

  • Connie says:

    What about these or doing a virgin version of them? http://sinlesscocktails.com/

  • Sona M. says:

    What a nice idea! I always enjoyed tiramisu so was excited to make a healthy one! Eventhough our friends absolutely loved it, it was a little too sweet for my taste. Next time I make sure to use less Stevia/Truvia/Erythritol.

  • Made this today and it is soooo good. My ladyfingers didn’t turn out so neat as your pic, but really no one is going to see them and they still taste yummy, so a win for me!

  • Manuela says:

    Hi Maria,I am writing from Rome-Italy-so please excuse my english …
    I find your blog really interesting especially for someone like me who is always on a diet … I also bought your ebook … I wanted to ask …. I noticed that in your recipes often use the cream cheese, whipped cream and butter …. Unfortunately I am intolerant to these foods, sometimes I use the greek yogurt but it is quite acid, could you advise me what can I use instead of the foods that I listed? In addition, the cheese and the cream can be used in the diet?
    Thank you and ciao from Rome

    • cemmerich says:

      The best would be coconut oil and coconut cream. If you can get a can of coconut milk, put it in the fridge overnight and then skim the cream off the top of the can. Thank you! 🙂

  • Deborah B says:

    I just made this dessert and it is really good, I definitely will be making it again. The only thing I would change for next time, is to use Swerve instead of Erythritol. For me, the texture was too gritty and not smooth. I also did not have Mascarpone Cheese, so I substituted with 8 oz. Cream Cheese, 2 tbsp. Butter & 1/4 c. Whipping Cream – mixed together. Worked great and tasted great! Thank you!

  • Joanne says:

    Would it help to use powdered erythritol? If so how much? I have found that the powdered was better for frosting than the granular.
    Thanks Maria.

    hola me gustaria saber como puedo reemplazar el queso crema o el mascarpone , soy alergica a los lacteos y me encantaria saber de esto ya que es mi postre favorito desde ya , aprendo mucho con tu pagina


    • cemmerich says:

      You can try coconut cream (skimmed from the top of a can of coconut milk). You may have to adjust the moisture a bit (less moisture) to get the right dough texture. 🙂

  • Gypsie says:

    Maria I love you! I’ve been eating Keto for two months with almost a 15 pound weight lost. It’s been a stressful week and lots of anger frustration and negativity. A few minutes ago I decided I really wanted a “drink” meaning alcohol something I like but my body has never tolerated well. I was googling how to make a Keto cocktail, haha is there even such a thing? Not really but I found some recipes. Then I went to your blog and put alcohol in the search bar. I read this post and I’m saved. Gonna go make som Keto ice cream and maybe some fat bombs and crawl into a warm relaxing Epsom salt bubble bath with my Secrets to a Healthy Metabolism book. No alcohol for this Keto girl!

  • Michelle says:

    It looks beautifully yummy. But I do not have the egg protein powder product… can you suggest a substitute?

  • Meredith says:

    Not sure where we went wrong making this but ours turned out very runny instead of like pudding. The bread didn’t seem to soak p any moisture at all. Taste was great, maybe just a bit too sweet but that wold be easily corrected. Any ideas how to firm up my pudding?

    • Maria Emmerich says:

      Sorry, try reducing the liquid ingredients in the pudding a bit next time. I’m not sure what happened🙏
