Fresh Mango & Coconut Milk ‘Trifles’

A ‘trifle’ is a typical English dessert, traditionally made of fresh fruits, Chantilly and Jello. Here’s an unstructured and vegan version: the agar agar, a gelling agent is mixed with the coconut milk and the fresh mango is pureed. I did not add any Chantilly (it would be possible with iced coconut milk;  just place a coconut milk can in your fridg,  scoop the cream on top – the water will be underneath- and whip it as a Chantilly) but added pistachios and chia seeds. Ingredients :

  • 1 coconut milk can
  • 1 mango, peeled and stoneless, diced
  • ½ tsp agar agar
  • the zest of ½ a lime
  • 1 handful blanched pistachios
  • 1 handful chia seeds


  1. With a blender, mix the mango to a puree
  2. In a pan, heat the coconut milk and slowly add the agar agar while stirring constantly
  3. Add the lime zest and stir again
  4. Do not bring to a boil, keep on low heat for 10 minutes
  5. Pour the mango puree into small bowls and slowly add the coconut milk
  6. Let the trifles cool down and store in your fridge for at least two hours
  7. Sprinkle with chia seeds and pistachios

Enjoy !
