If you’re a fan of Tiramisu, welcome to your new favorite drink.

True confession, I absolutely love Tiramisu. It’s one of those desserts when I see it on a menu, I’m always tempted to order it, but I very rarely make it!

It might come as a surprise, but we don’t eat a lot of sweets in my house (most of what I make gets gifted to friends). Cookies are easy to give away, but Tiramisu is a bit more difficult (mostly because it needs refrigeration and doesn’t travel as well as cookies!).

This latte is the perfect solution!

This Iced Tiramisu Latte showcases the flavor of the creamy mascarpone Tiramisu filling front and center. As you enjoy your way through the creamy topping, the flavor of espresso adds great balance. It’s in the center part where the decadent cream and the espresso meet that the magic happens as the flavors swirl together.

Cheese Tea as Inspiration

The deliciousness of Tiramisu was only half of my inspiration for this recipe though.

The other half came from something called Cheese Tea, which I first discovered back in 2018. If you’ve never heard of Cheese Tea, I know it probably sounds very odd! Get ideas of mozzarella and cheddar out of your head, lol.

Instead, think of whipped cream that’s just a little bit thicker than soft peaks with a soft cheese – such as cream cheese or mascarpone – whipped in. It’s sweetened (we use maple syrup here) and flavored (vanilla is a favorite of mine). This luscious topping gives drinks almost a cheesecake-like quality (but without all the richness of sitting down to a slice of cheesecake).

Cheese Tea features that luscious creamy topping on chilled tea. Here, coffee replaces tea and we create a Tiramisu flavor profile. And this Tiramisu Latte was born!

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • It’s quick and easy to make! In just 10 minutes, you’ll be sipping on a unique, decadent, coffee-shop-quality drink.
  • The mascarpone cream. Ohhh myyyy, is it good! Rich and velvety-smooth with subtle sweet and smoky maple notes, a hint of underlying vanilla, and a touch of sea salt. It’s like a soft mousse floating on top of espresso!
  • It makes just 2 servings. This is perfect for you and a friend! Or you can make it for just you and store half of the mascarpone cream in the fridge for up to 3 days.

Tips for Success

  • Make sure the espresso is hot for this drink! Even though we’re making an iced latte, the espresso should be hot. This is because it will help melt the ice. Otherwise, the espresso will be too strong (it’s quite a bitter flavor when it’s not diluted).
  • As you might know, Tiramisu typically has alcohol in it! If you want to make an alcoholic version of this drink, you can add a shot of rum, brandy, or amaretto along with the espresso.
