Lemon Blueberry Tiramisu

This creamy, velvety dessert is much different to the traditional Tiramisu dessert that I was never a fan of.   Lemons and blueberries are a perfect match in this delectable dessert recipe and you can impress your party guests and make it fancy by serving it in a glass.  If you can’t find fresh blueberries then the frozen ones are just as fine in this recipe.  Wake up your winter blues with the bright dessert…you just may want to push that New Year’s diet resolution to the side, just this once.
