This pretty, no-bake, Easy Strawberry Tiramisu is a deliciously fun summer twist on a classic Italian dessert. Store-bought ladyfinger cookies, dipped in a sweet honey ginger syrup and layered with whipped mascarpone cream and strawberry jam. A generous topping of fresh strawberries finishes this sweet treat off. This no-bake, creamy, berry-filled tiramisu is such a yummy summer treat that requires very little effort. A great make-head party dessert!

My first tiramisu recipe and I am so excited to share it! I’ve loved tiramisu for the longest time. If you’re not familiar, it’s a classic Italian dessert consisting of coffee-dipped ladyfinger cookies layered with egg-based whipped mascarpone cream. The cookies are usually topped with a dusting of cocoa powder.

Tiramisu is creamy, luscious, and perfect. Especially classic varieties that use raw egg yolks and bold espresso. I love the original so much that I didn’t want to mess with a good thing and share a non-traditional variation.

That is until I had this fun summery idea. So I made an exception. This strawberry tiramisu really is just as luscious and perfect as it looks. You will love it!

When it comes to summertime recipes, I’m always so inspired by the in-season produce around me, especially the berries. I have a lot of fun cooking and baking with them!

Once I had this idea I just knew I had to run with it. The ginger syrup really is the secret. It’s such a wonderful pairing with the sweet strawberries and tart cream.

The details

Step 1: make the ginger syrup

This is simply water mixed with honey and sliced pieces of fresh ginger. Simmer this mix on the stove to heat the ginger. Then I love to add a few chamomile tea bags for a light floral flavor. It’s really so nice with the honey and ginger.

Step 2: mix the mascarpone cream

This is the heart of a good tiramisu. You’ll need egg yolks, mascarpone cheese, cream, honey, and just a pinch of ginger. I like to add vanilla and then one super special ingredient, Aperol. The Aperol is so wonderful when paired with the strawberries, it really completes the Italian vibe.

Mix everything together in a bowl until smooth, just be sure to not over-mix.

Step 3: dip and layer

Take the lady fingers and very quickly dip them into the ginger syrup and arrange them in your baking dish. I use a square 9×9 dish.

Now layer on the cream, and then the strawberry jam and fresh strawberries. Add another layer of ladyfingers and finish with cream.

Chill until ready to serve, overnight is ideal, but an hour or two also works well!

I love to top my tiramisu with a swirl more of strawberry jam, fresh berries, and then some freeze-dried raspberries crushed on top.

Slice or scoop and enjoy every last creamy, berry-filled bite. The perfect balance of sweet and creamy that leaves you longing for another bite. Plus, we love that this is no-bake and easy to make!

Ginger Chamomile syrup



  • 1. To make the syrup. Bring 1/2 cup water, the honey, and ginger to a gentle boil over medium. Simmer, 1-2 minutes and remove from the heat. Add the tea bags, cover, and steep 15 minutes. Strain out the ginger and discard the tea.
    2. In a bowl, beat together the egg yolks, mascarpone, 1/4 cup heavy cream, honey, Aperol, vanilla, and ginger until combined and lightly whipped. Do not beat longer than 2 minutes.
    3. In a separate bowl, whip the remaining 1/4 cup of cream until soft peaks form. Gently fold the whipped cream into the mascarpone cream.
    4. Working with one at a time, quickly dip each ladyfinger into the ginger syrup. Do not let the ladyfinger sit long in the syrup, they’ll get too soggy. Arrange a single layer of the dipped ladyfingers in a 9×9 inch baking dish.
    5. Spoon over about half of the mascarpone cream. Dollop 1/2 cup strawberry jam over the cream. Then arrange a single layer of sliced strawberries on top.
    6. Dip the remaining ladyfingers in the ginger syrup, lining them up over the berries one by one. Add the cream on top and spread it into a smooth layer. Cover and chill for 2 hours or up to overnight.
    7. Before serving, top with 2-3 tablespoons jam plus the sliced strawberries. If desired, crumble freeze-dried raspberries overtop. Slice, scoop, and enjoy!

  1. I plan on making this for Easter. I do have one suggestion: I think it’s important that your recipe should specify to use pasteurized eggs. Not everyone will realize it’s unsafe to use raw eggs in the recipe.

    1. Thanks for this feedback, Mary!! I hope you love this recipe, let me know how it turns out for you! xT

    Realizing for friends, it’s really a success, it was very appreciated, and above all it’s delicious, Thank you for the recipe

      1. Hello,

        Your directions say that overnight is best, I was thinking about making this for my wedding and I would love to be able to make it the night before.

        Do you think it’ll be okay? Or should I just wake up early and do it the morning of? Anything I can prep ahead of time?

        I doubt I’ll be able to sleep anyways, so making it in the morning wouldn’t kill me!

        1. Hi Faith! Aw that is SO exciting! Congrats on your wedding! I think that should work fine to prep the day before 🙂 xT

    1. Hi Nada,
      You’re going to want to use pasteurized eggs in this recipe:) Please let me know if you have any other questions! xx

    Brought this to a dinner party. Incredibly good and easy to make. Everyone loved the combination of flavors. Thanks for another great recipe!

    1. Hi Kristen,
      Happy Sunday!! I appreciate you making this recipe and sharing your feedback, thanks so much for making it:)

  4. This was a great recipe and I loved the ginger syrup in it. Based on some of the other reviews, I didn’t add the honey to the mascarpone cream and it was delicious with the in season strawberries and definitely sweet enough. It looked so pretty as well with the strawberries and raspberries on top! Great for a big group.

    1. Hey Elle,
      Amazing!! Love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed and sharing your feedback! Thanks for making it:) xx

    I made the Strawberry Tiramisu for a 4th of July BBQ. I was a bit leery about the ginger & chamomile combination but it was absolutely perfect. I crumbled some dried strawberries on top to add to sliced strawberries & jam. It was very easy to put together and everyone raved about it! Thank you for posting this, Tieghan.

    1. Hi Betty,
      Wonderful!! I am so glad to hear that you enjoyed this recipe and appreciate you making it! xT

    Did you use pasturized egg yolks in the recipe? I would be afraid to use the regular due to harmful bacteria. It looks yummy and a great alternative to regular tiramisu!

    1. Hi Karen,
      I did, yes:) Let me know if you give this recipe a try, I hope it turns out well for you! xx

    Made exactly as written. Overwhelmingly sweet—and I like sweet! Also, so rich and heavy unlike what a sweet strawberry treat should be. I didn’t get the taste of the ginger/ honey/tea since it was hidden by the mascarpone cream mixture. I like the idea of it, and I love traditional tiramisu, but I won’t be making this again. I’ll keep looking for a lighter, less sweet version.

    1. Hi Ann,
      Thanks for giving this recipe a try and sharing your feedback, so sorry to hear it wasn’t enjoyed! xx

    Made this for the 4th – it definitely was easy, (except that I let the honey ginger syrup boil over – what a mess! Actually caught on fire on my stove top). Pretty dessert and out guests enjoyed it. It was too sweet for me, but that’s just a personal preference.

    1. Hi Mary,
      Thanks for giving this recipe a try and sharing your feedback! Sorry to hear it was too sweet and sorry to hear about the syrup! Let me know if I can help in anyway! xT

  9. Made this for the 4th of July and there was so much food that I ended up taking leftovers home and boy am I glad because it was SOOO good the next day! Will definitely make again and will be sure to leave it overnight.

    1. Lol so glad to hear this Brittney! Thanks so much for trying the recipe and sharing your feedback! Have a great weekend! xT

    This was outstanding! Tiramisu is my favorite dessert. Will you ever do a classic version? I have experienced some real dud recipes for classic tiramisu and since your recipes are always so delicious, it would be amazing if you tackled it!

    1. Hi Kim,
      Thanks so much for trying this recipe, so glad it was a hit!! I’ll add the classic to my list, maybe this fall:) Have a great Thursday! xT

  11. Made this for a 4th of July dessert. It was delicious! Big hit.
    Love that honey, ginger simple syrup. It would be great in a fresh lemonade too. I omitted the chamomile tea. And, oddly enough, I only had 1/4 cup each of heavy cream and half and half. So, used the half and half in the mascarpone mixture, beat the heavy cream and folded in. Worked wonderfully.

    1. Hi Teri,
      Amazing!! I am thrilled to hear that this recipe was a hit, thanks a lot for making it and your feedback! xT

    Made this this past weekend, and it was AMAZING! Do not skip the chamomile tea. That ingredient combined with the honey and ginger made the ladyfingers taste heavenly! We were scrapping the baking dish until it was all gone. I’ll be making this dessert again for future Italian dinner nights!

    1. Hi Emily,
      Happy Wednesday!!🍊🍋 I appreciate you trying this recipe and your feedback, so glad to hear that it turned out well for you! xx
