I never thought about a green tea tiramisu recipe until I saw a tiramisu with green tea in Japan. It looked surprisingly delicious, so I had to give it a try!
For this Japanese twist, I altered my traditional tiramisu recipe by replacing cocoa with matcha, and coffee with green tea. The result was terrific!
Actually, matcha makes a great substitute for cocoa powder in many desserts. You can experiment using it in cakes and cookies.
This recipe serves nine. Each serving is about 200 calories and 14 grams of fat. The preparation is quick and easy, but you have to wait for it to set in the refrigerator for at least two hours.

1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup mascarpone cheese

If you don’t want to use the liqueur, you can use vanilla extract instead.
