Low-fat and luscious
With all the flavours of Christmas this sorbet is a very special dessert with which to finish a festive meal...
Although this lovely recipe may sound more like a dessert than a starter, it's actually a brilliantly refreshing way to begin a meal and cleanses the palate for what lies ahead.
Refreshing to eat and easy to make, all you need to serve this lovely dessert is some whipped cream.
Dessert figs that have become too dry to eat as they are can be excellent made into a compote. This is superb served with ice cream, but failing that, try it with some Greek yoghurt.
This is the recipe to make when there's a real glut of ripe strawberries. It's a much nicer way to conserve them than simply freezing them. The granita looks like sparkling jewels when you serve it in tall glasses.
