    Typically, tiramisu isn't supposed to be very sweet so I enjoyed that this recipe was in line with that. I used 1 cup strong coffee (Green Mountain Dark Magic) and 1/2 cup 1% milk. I used honey vanilla greek yogurt (The Greek Gods brand) and for my taste, it's flavor was perfect for this dessert. You really do need to do a "quick dip" with the ladyfingers or they will become too soggy. I veered towards the tendency to want to let them soak up a bit more coffee but try not to do that and stick to the "quick dip" and be sure to shake the excess off. I served it with fresh raspberries on the side and they added a great touch to the dessert, I recommend them. Another thing I'd like to try: instead of adding the 1/2 cup milk to the coffee, add 1/2 cup Starbuck's Cinnamon Dolce (latte) Creamer, I think that flavor would be excellent for this dessert. It would make it less diabetic and figure friendly though if that is a concern.

    I used 1 C salted caramel yogurt, 1/2 C low sugar vanilla yogurt, 1/2 C whole milk plain yogurt, and less milk in coffee mixture. Fold into whipped cream. Quickly dip ladyfingers. This dessert is much more flavorful after it sets 24 hours. Keep covered in refrigerator.

    I was excited about this, but honestly it was one of the worst recipes I've made from Taste of Home. It must rely on having just the right brand/thickness/sweetness of yogurt. I used sweetened yogurt, and still had to add a little sugar to the cream, and even then the final result was sour and soggy. I had to throw it away.
