Put a pink spin on the classic tiramisu – Florida Pearl® strawberries are back in season! These pale pink strawberries are a little softer than red strawberries, and the flavour is characterised by low acidity and a subtle pineapple aroma. Just like regular strawberries, Florida Pearl® strawberries can be eaten fresh and added to desserts and bakes. We've used them in tiramisu to make a gloriously light and decadent dessert.


  • 500 g Woolworths Florida Pearl® strawberries, plus extra, sliced, to decorate
  • 3 T castor sugar 
  • 1 T lemon, juiced 
  • 1 cup Woolworths hibiscus petal tea
  • 16 Boudoir biscuits 
  • 400 g Woolworths mascarpone 
  • 4 T icing sugar, plus extra for dusting 
  • Woolworths freeze-dried strawberries, to decorate 

Cooking Instructions

1. Cube the strawberries, then place into a bowl. Sprinkle with the caster sugar and lemon juice and allow to stand for 2 hours.

2. Strain the strawberries, reserving the liquid. Mix the strained strawberry juice with the cooled tea.

3. Dip some of the Boudoir biscuits into the strawberry-tea mixture and place into a serving dish.

4. Beat the mascarpone and icing sugar until smooth. Spoon ⅓ of the mascarpone mixture over the dipped biscuits, then add some strawberries. Repeat this process twice more.

5. Chill overnight. Decorate with fresh and dried strawberries and dust with icing sugar.
