Christmas Trifle



  • 4 egg whites (you can freeze the yolks
  • to use in custard or mayonnaise)
  • Pinch sea salt
  • 1/3 cup rice malt syrup (optional)
  • 2 1/2 cups shredded coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups mixed berries
  • 1 large can coconut cream or milk, chilled in the fridge for an hour
  • 1 1/2 cup full-fat plain or Greek yoghurt or homemade cream cheese (simple recipe can be found here)


  1. Christmas Eve: Preheat oven to 120°C/250°F/Gas Mark 1/2. To make the meringues, beat egg whites and salt in a bowl to create stiff peaks. Add the syrup and beat a little more. Then gently fold in the shredded coconut. Form into 12 rough balls and place on a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for 30 minutes. Reduce oven temp to 95°C and bake for another hour until balls are chewy.
  2. Bake for longer if you like them crispy. Remove from oven and let cool completely before removing them from parchment paper. Store in an airtight container overnight. Meanwhile, place coconut cream in the fridge. Make a simple coulis by bringing the berries and 1/2 cup (125ml) of water to a gentle boil, breaking berries up with a wooden spoon and reducing for a few minutes until you reach a syrup-like consistency. Store in the fridge overnight in a non-metallic container.
  3. Christmas Day: Take your 12 meringues, crumble roughly and set aside. Whip the coconut milk/cream and yoghurt/cream cheese with a pinch of salt until thick. Now, divide the meringue chunks (reserving a few for topping) into the bottom of eight glasses (mugs or cocktail stems could also work). Divide three-quarters of the berries between the eight glasses, then place a big dollop of cream on top. Top with a few extra berries and the remaining meringue chunks, to serve.
