Prep time: 10 min | Freezing time: 45 min in an ice cream machine or overnight | Makes: 1.5 l

750 ml double thick yoghurt
400 ml tin coconut milk
6 granadillas, cut in half with pulp set aside
Juice of 2–3 fresh limes
125 ml/½ cup agave syrup

Cones, granadilla pulp, lime zest and wafers, to serve



1. Whisk the yoghurt in a bowl with the coconut milk, granadilla pulp (save a little for serving) and lime juice.


2. Sweeten to taste with up to ½ cup of agave syrup.
3. Transfer into the bowl of an ice cream machine and churn until smooth and creamy according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Alternatively, if you don’t have an ice cream machine, pour the mixture into a freezer-proof container and place in the freezer for 45 minutes, then whisk or beat it to break up any ice crystals. Repeat this a few times over four hours and leave overnight to set.

4. Serve in cones or in a ramekin with a dollop of fresh granadilla pulp, some lime zest and wafers.
