This delicious syllabub created by Shelina Permalloo combines unrefined golden icing sugar, lime and mango to create a real summer treat. This truly scumptious pud would be a great addition to any dinner party.

10 ingredients4 steps


    1. Step 1

      Put the ginger biscuits into a large plastic bag (a sandwich bag is ideal) and bash vigorously with a rolling pin until you have a bag of crumbs.

    2. Step 2

      In a large bowl, add the lime juice, lime zest, cream, icing sugar and vanilla seeds and you will see it miraculously thicken. - this is the reaction of lime juice and room temperature cream meaning you don’t even need to take your whisk out!

    3. Step 3

      Gently fold in the puree and mango cubes and reserve some for the decoration

    4. Step 4

      Divide into 4 dessert bowls, top with desiccated coconut, mango puree and mango pieces and some fresh mint leaves
