Ice cream sundae glass
50g fruit salad (made with tinned pears, peaches and cherries)
2 generous scoops of vanilla ice cream
1 tbsp raspberry sauce (see below)
Generous piping of whipped cream
1 wafer biscuit
1 glacé cherry
A classic ice cream dessert that everyone will love, and, with the fruit, you can almost convince yourself that it's a bit healthy (kind of)...
First make the raspberry sauce by roughly crushing a punnet of fresh raspberries until it's half fruit half liquid then mix in a little icing sugar until you have the desired sweetness.
Add fruit to the sundae glass first, followed by a scoop of ice cream, more fruit and some raspberry sauce.
Then another ball of ice cream topped with whipped cream, more raspberry sauce, a wafer and the crowning glory – a glossy red glacé cherry.
