Strawberry Tiramisu is full of summertime tiramisu flavor. Slice some strawberries and use some strawberry liquor to dip the lady fingers in for a summer twist to this classic.
It’s summer. I can’t believe it’s already summer! Can you? I’m just amazed at how fast the year has gone. Next thing I know it’ll be August and my in laws will be here. That’s just in a few short weeks. I need to start the cleaning ritual.
We saw them in May. They took us to a great vineyard by them that grows and pressed exclusively muscato grapes. Their wines are delicious and not sweet like I thought they would be. Some are sweet, but not overly sweet.
What does this have to do with this recipe and this post? Well, as I was buying a case of wine and a few gifts and props, I came across a large wine glass full of wine stoppers from Charles Viancin. I’ve never really seen their products at a store. Granted, I don’t shop often, but I thought it was cool! And they looked so pretty in the large glass. I couldn’t wait to tell the guy all about the company that made those.
Anyway, back to this post and this recipe.
I am loving the fresh produce of the season. Aren’t you? All the fresh fruits and vegetables are so delicious! When Camilla at Culinary Adventures with Camilla asked me to participate in this event, I was thrilled and immediately inspired by the colors of the spatulas to create something with gorgeous, in season strawberries.
Just look at how the color of the strawberries really offsets the colors of the spatulas! I am totally in love with these spatulas. Just look at them!! They’re so pretty and truly are #inspiredbynature! The wood handle is a sturdy, pretty wood. The silicone of the spatula is super easy to use and really does spatulate well. Is that even a word? Spatulate?
It wipes clean.
Now I sound like a toilet paper commercial! You know what I mean though. Sometimes the spatula just doesn’t clean the bowl out because it’s too flimsy and strong enough to keep it’s contact with the side of the bowl. They’re also sturdy in that you can lift a heavy piece of tiramisu out of the pan and it’s not going to bend backwards on you. These spatulas are AWESOME!
And so is this tiramisu! It has fresh strawberry flavor. I macerated the strawberries with some sugar to make a nice little juice for the lady fingers to soak up along with the coffee/strawberry vodka mixture. It also added to their sweetness making it a delicious dessert that tastes like summer!
You can see that the lady fingers did soak up that strawberry juice along with the mixture of coffee, coffee liquor, and strawberry vodka. Okay. That sounds like a lot of alcohol, but it’s not strong. I wanted the cookies to have strawberry flavor in them. Hence the double whammy of the strawberry juice and the strawberry vodka.
Honestly. How pretty are those spatulas? They have such bright colors and look like pretty flowers for your kitchen! They were nice enough to send me the apron which is the background. It matches the mug I received last year and the spatulas they sent me this year. AND, get this, it has pot holders built in!!
That’s the thing about Charles Viancin. Their products are so pretty, useful, and unique! They’re multi-purpose! It’s not my favorite apron and I use it all the time when I’m cooking up a storm in the kitchen. I’ve used these spatulas several times since getting them and I love them more and more every time I use them.
You can see how sturdy and thick the handle is. It’s not going to give or break on you. The spatula easily stirred the sugar into the strawberries. I would have usually used a spoon for this, but these spatulas could easily handle stirring those fresh strawberries.
And, I just can’t say enough how gorgeous these spatulas really are. See what I mean? They’re also nice and thick. They’re not going to bend on you when you’re trying to stir or lift something.
See that poppy on the left?
That’s the potholder built into the apron! How cool is that? I love that apron and I love these spatulas. They’re going in the utensil bin for use all the time.
And you’re going to love this strawberry tiramisu. It truly does taste like summer! It’s light and creamy with strawberry flavor. It’s so easy to put together and you can prepare it ahead of time for your picnic or dinner party. I put mine in a loaf pan to make it easy to turn out onto a platter and slice up for serving. It’s the best no-bake dessert I’ve made to date!
