This low carb and gluten free Tiramisu is guaranteed to be a crowd pleaser this Christmas. Based on the taste testing that we all did with our friends and family, this will be a winner with your non low carb friends and family too. With the lashings of cream, it is very rich and small servings are reccomended. Even our suggested serve size is quite generous! Pour a strong coffee and enjoy.
