Plant-based Tiramusu for Chef AJ

Did you know that Tiramusu translates as 'pick me up'? We all loved the traditional Italian recipe but unfortunately it's loaded with fat, alcohol and caffeine. This healthier version has antioxidants and is rich in fibre and omega 3s. Made for the lovely Chef AJ on her YouTube channel, this recipe is for everyone with a sweet tooth!
