Although replacing eggs with cream may seem like a gamble to most people, in reality this ingredient can also be replaced in different ways.

– The first and tastiest (but certainly not less caloric) is condensed milk . You will need 300 g of it to mix directly with the mascarpone with an electric whisk. In this case, since it is already very sweet, we recommend omitting the icing sugar .

– For a lighter version you can then use ricotta . Work 300 g of it with the icing sugar until you obtain a cream, then add it to the mascarpone. Choose a dry ricotta or let it drain for a few hours before using it.

– Finally, you can replace the cream with yogurt (250 g). Whether it is white or lightly flavored (like vanilla), you will get a truly amazing dessert. However, avoid all fruity flavors that would clash with the flavor of the coffee.
