Syllabub is a seriously easy dessert that only requires 3 ingredients and about 10 minutes of your time. It also seems great for parties or an after dinner treat as, being very rich, it lends itself well to small portions. It also is extremely adaptable - you could use any liqueur to flavour this. This time I went slightly asian to match my dinner, but I think next time I'll try Cointreau and orange peel, or maybe Chambord and raspberries, or maybe...

Matcha Syllabub (serves 4):
1/3 Zen Green Tea Liqueur
2 tbsp sugar
1 cup/250 ml heavy cream
matcha powder (optional)

Pour the green tea liqueur into a bowl with the sugar and whisk to dissolve. Next, whisk in the heavy cream and whip until it has thickened but is still soft and billowy. I sprinkled matcha powder on top for an extra punch of green tea flavour.


  1. Looks DIVINE... and I love easy. Where did you find the liquer and the macha powder? Need to know this... I have been looking. :)

  2. Hi Valerie! The Zen liqueur I got at Sobey's liquor store in St. Albert (it's pricey though) and the matcha powder from T&T (also expensive for a tiny portion, but I've had the same small tin for over 2 years now).
