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.


2 egg yolks

1 1/2 tablespoons sugar

1/2 cup mascarpone cheese

5 tablespoons Grand Marnier, divided

1 1/4 cups brewed green tea

12 ladyfinger cookies, split horizontally in half

2 teaspoons matcha


  1. In a medium mixing bowl, beat egg yolks and sugar on medium speed until smooth.
  2. Gradually add mascarpone cheese, one spoon at a time, until smooth.
  3. Add 4 tablespoons of the Grand Marnier and mix on low speed until blended.
  4. In a separate bowl, mix the brewed green tea and 1 tablespoon of Grand Marnier to make a green tea mixture.
  5. Dip half of the ladyfingers in the green tea mixture, and arrange them in an ungreased pan, cut sides up.
  6. Spoon half of the mascarpone mixture on top of the ladyfingers. Sprinkle with matcha.
  7. Repeat steps #5 and #6 to make a second layer.
  8. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 2 hours.
  9. Sprinkle with additional matcha before serving.


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