Summer Mixed Fruit Sundaes (Not Just For Sundays!)

This delectable dessert makes the most of fruit currently in season, especially strawberries. These fruit sundaes only take about 15 minutes to prepare, and if you serve them in a tall glass, it gives a very decorative and professional look! The fresh strawberries and kiwi fruit are high in vitamin C and fibre, and if you use just 2 scoops of ice-cream per serving it keeps down the fat and calorie content.(Well, you've got to tell yourself they are good for you somehow, haven't you? To alleviate a bit of the “calorie guilt”! I don't usually worry about that though, I just enjoy them!!)

Ingredients (Serves 4)

290 g (10 ½ oz) can of raspberries in apple juice, or syrup

100 g (4 oz) strawberries, hulled and sliced

2 kiwi fruit, peeled and sliced

500 ml (18 fl oz) tub of vegan vanilla ice-cream

12 fresh raspberries

4 mint sprigs, to decorate


1) Drain the raspberries and reserve 2 tablespoons of juice from the can. Mash the raspberries with a fork or process in a blender until smooth and runny.

2) Using a spoon, press raspberries through a fine sieve into a small bowl. Discard seeds from the sieve. Stir the reserved juice into the raspberry pureé.

3) Divide 50 g (2 oz) of the sliced strawberries between 4 tall dessert glasses. Put half of the sliced kiwi fruit over the strawberries. Spoon 2 scoops of ice-cream into each glass.

4) Carefully drizzle raspberry pureé over the ice-cream. Place the remaining strawberry slices, kiwi fruit and raspberries around the side of the pureé.

5) Decorate each sundae ith a mint sprig, and serve immediately.

Variation:  For a crunchy topping, add a sprinkling of chopped, toasted mixed nuts, flaked almonds or shredded coconut, just before serving.

Enjoy this dish - an indulgent pleasure is good for you, once in a while!!! Your votes and comments are very much appreciated.
