Helpful hints

  • A 10-ounce prepared pound cake is the smaller size.
  • This is a low phosphorus version of traditional tiramisu.
  • To reduce carbohydrates and fat, use sugar substitute instead of sugar and replace regular cream cheese with low-fat cream cheese. You can also adjust to a smaller portion size.

This was an excellent recipe although I made a couple changes and it still came out yummy. Used vegan cream cheese, i.e., tofu cream cheese and used 1/4 cup regular granulated sugar along w/the appropriate amount of Stevia/Trulia. My brother is on dialysis and I agree w/the previous comment about eating in moderation for these tempting dishes and attempt to make substitutions if possible.

Loved the recipe! SO glad my friend could enjoy a "light" version of Tiramisu. He says moderation is the key and never to strictly prohibit anything unless labs are at acutely dangerous levels. This will only make someone want it even more. ANYWAY, THANKS. YUMMY.

I am amazed that you are suggesting that this particular recipe is remotely "friendly" for people on dialysis. I realize that everyone is different but practically all of the ingredients listed are prohibited by my father's dietician. I rate this very low. PS I love tiramisu but would not allow my father to enjoy this delicacy.
