septiembre 24, 2022

This recipe is perfect for some people, this is a very light, creamy and sophisticated little dessert that comes in handy for hot days, pretty refreshing lemon dessert that I used to make years ago. 

Preparation Time: 15 mins

Cook: 30 mins

Servings: 6


  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream, chilled
  • ½ cup white sugar
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • ⅛ cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg (or to taste)
  • 1 sprig fresh mint leaves for garnish
  • lemon slices for garnish


Step 1.
Whip the cream and sugar in a chilled bowl, until the cream begins to thicken. Gradually whip in the white wine, lemon juice, and lemon zest. Continue to whip until light and fluffy, but not grainy. Cover the mixture and chill until serving time.

Step 2.
Serve in chilled parfait glasses, garnished with a dash of nutmeg, a sprig of mint, and a slice of lemon. Syllabub should be eaten with a small spoon, and savored.
