Halva & blackberry ice cream with blackberry sauce
There’s fewer more indulgent treats than ice cream on a hot summer’s day, but many of us shy away from the sickly sweet tubs found in the supermarket. This recipe has the answer; the crumbled halva offers a bit of sweetness while the fresh blackberry is tart and delicious.
Raspberry gin sorbet
This raspberry gin sorbet is the grown up version of the ice lolly, swapping out sprinkles and cream for fresh berries and a hint of gin. And with no dairy, it’s suitable for vegans and anyone with a lactose allergy, too.
Blackberry and Coconut Parfait
This Blackberry and Coconut Parfait is gluten free, and is an easy dessert that can be made the day before, even the week before, and then kept in the freezer. It’s a sophisticated alternative to ice cream that anyone with a sweet tooth will love.
Strawberry, Mint and Pineapple Iced Yoghurts
Strawberry, Mint and Pineapple Iced Yoghurts are a deliciously light alternative to ice cream. These fruity little numbers will have everyone coming back for more. Serve them in mini cones for a perfect afternoon snack.
