I’m not sure if I, Alyssa, have been living under a rock, but when it comes to tiramisu, I’ve always thought there was one kind and one kind only.

Turns out I was wrong and there’s actually a whole world of tiramisu flavors out there! Who knew?!

My eyes were first opened to the tiramisu possibilities when we were visiting Lake Como last year.

We stumbled upon a cute little restaurant with red fruit tiramisu on their dessert menu and immediately, I was intrigued.

We never made it to the restaurant to eat, but I still remember that dessert to this day. With so much fresh summer fruit currently in season, now seemed like as good a time as any to make my own spin on the traditional recipe.

Ingredients Needed to Make a Summer Fruit Tiramisu

For this Summer Fruit Tiramisu recipe, I used a mix of apricots, blackberries, and cherries! But really, you can use any combination of fruit that you like… from blackberries to raspberries!

And for those of you that might not be a fan of the espresso used in traditional tiramisu, you’ll be happy to know that there’s not a drop of coffee to be found in this recipe.

Instead, I used a mixture of jam, water, lemon juice, and booze to soak the lady fingers in. Everyone may not be a coffee fan, but, let’s be real, everyone is definitely a fan of boozy-infused desserts.

I sure hope you are, because this is one dessert you don’t want to miss out on! Alright, let’s get started.

How to Make a Summer Fruit Tiramisu

Step 1 – Mix all the fruit together in a bowl and set it aside. This will allow the fruit to meld together and flow the juices.

Step 2 – In a mixing bowl, beat together the egg yolks and sugar until thick and fluffy. This will take about 3-4 minutes.

Add in the Frangelico and mascarpone mix just until combined.

Add the beaten egg whites and whipped cream and gently fold to combine. Set the bowl aside.

Step 3 – In a small saucepan, set over medium heat, combine the jam, lemon juice, Chambord, and water.

Cook, stirring constantly, for just a few minutes, or until the jam has melted into the mixture. Remove the pan from the heat.

Step 4 – To assemble the tiramisu, quickly dip the ladyfingers into the jam mixture, then spread them out in the bottom of an 8×8” square baking dish.

I laid mine out in 2 rows of 10 cookies each.

Step 5 – Top the cookies with half of the mascarpone mixture and then all of the fruit.

Repeat the process of dipping and layering the 10 remaining ladyfinger cookies on top of the fruit. If there is any of the jam mixture left, feel free to drizzle it on top, too.

Finish off with the remainder of the cream mixture.

Step 6 – I know it’s going to be super hard, but try to resist immediately digging a spoon into it.

And instead cover with plastic wrap and pop it into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. although, 4-6 hours makes it even better.

Step 7 — Once it’s chilled, top with extra fruit and powdered sugar (if you choose) and serves it up! Your guests will be complimenting you all evening.
