Imagine the rich flavors of Tiramisu combined with the comforting warmth of a latte – that’s what you get with a Tiramisu Latte. This indulgent beverage is perfect for those who love the flavors of Tiramisu but crave something a bit more liquid.



  • 1 shot of espresso (or 1/2 cup of strong brewed coffee)
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1 tablespoon of mascarpone cheese
  • 1 tablespoon of cocoa powder
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar (adjust according to your taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • Ladyfinger biscuit or a piece of sponge cake for garnish (optional)



  1. Brew a shot of espresso using an espresso machine or prepare strong brewed coffee using your preferred method.
  2. In a small saucepan, heat the milk over medium heat until it’s warm but not boiling.
  3. In a separate bowl, mix the mascarpone cheese, cocoa powder, sugar, and vanilla extract until well combined.
  4. Once the milk is warm, pour it into the bowl with the mascarpone mixture. Use a whisk or a fork to whisk everything together until smooth and frothy.
  5. Brew your espresso shot directly into a large mug or glass.
  6. Pour the frothy milk and mascarpone mixture over the espresso shot, stirring gently to combine.
  7. Optionally, sprinkle some cocoa powder or grated chocolate on top for extra flavor and presentation.
  8. If desired, garnish your Tiramisu Latte with a ladyfinger biscuit or a piece of sponge cake for an authentic Tiramisu touch.
  9. Serve immediately and enjoy your delicious Tiramisu Latte!



1. Can I make a Tiramisu Latte without espresso? Absolutely! If you don’t have an espresso machine, you can substitute a shot of espresso with 1/2 cup of strong brewed coffee. Just make sure it’s robust enough to stand up to the other flavors in the drink.

2. Can I use a different type of milk? Yes, you can use any type of milk you prefer, whether it’s whole milk, skim milk, almond milk, or oat milk. Each type will give a slightly different flavor and texture to your latte, so feel free to experiment and find what you like best.

3. Is mascarpone cheese necessary? Mascarpone cheese adds richness and creaminess to the latte, mimicking the flavors of traditional Tiramisu. However, if you don’t have mascarpone on hand, you can try substituting it with cream cheese or omitting it altogether for a simpler version of the drink.

4. Can I adjust the sweetness of the latte? Yes, absolutely. The amount of sugar in the recipe is just a guideline. Feel free to adjust it to suit your taste preferences. You can also use alternative sweeteners like honey or maple syrup if you prefer.
