Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu

This Strawberry Shortcake Tiramisu is our absolute favourite spring dessert. It’s light and creamy, and perfect for Easter. It’s not made with coffee, but green tea, lightening the dessert, but still giving you a little caffeine kick. This is Sweet Pea’s recipe that she wonderfully shared with Diva #1 a few years ago; she’s been making it for Easter ever since she got her hands on it.
