Vegetarian for Life

This lemon syllabub is adapted from a Victorian recipe. It can easily be made vegan, using a rice-, soya- or coconut-based whipping cream. Commercial varieties of vegan whipping cream are available, or why not try making your own? The syllabub is great served with homemade hazelnut shorties.
