A syllabub is a sweet and simple, frothy English dessert typically made with whipped cream, wine or sherry, sweetener, and lemon juice. This simple vegan five-ingredient syllabub is just rich and creamy as the original with a hint of zesty lime. Serve chilled in glasses for the perfect minimalist dessert.

5-Ingredient Lime and Coconut Syllabub [Vegan, Grain-Free]





Cooking Time




  • 14 fluid ounce-can full-fat coconut milk, chilled
  • 4 tablespoons coconut yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 2 limes
  • 1 teaspoon toasted coconut chips


  1. Open the can of chilled coconut milk and scoop out the solid cream, discarding the remaining coconut water (or reserve it for another recipe). Spoon the coconut cream into a mixing bowl and add the coconut yoghurt. Use an electric whisk to whip the cream, yoghurt, and maple syrup together for about 5 minutes until gentle peaks begin to form.
  2. In the meantime, finely grate the lime zest, then halve one of the limes, ready for juicing.
  3. Stir the lime zest through the creamy mixture (reserving a teaspoon for serving), then squeeze in the juice of 1/2 lime.
  4. Spoon into dessert glasses and top with a few toasted coconut chips and lime zest to serve.


Chilling a can of coconut milk will separate the cream from the water, so you can simply scoop out the cream to make the most delicious desserts.
