This Italian-inspired dessert makes the most of this season’s seed-packed, sweet-fleshed, vibrant kiwis. Blended with a spicy ginger syrup, fragrant mint and zingy lime, this refreshing frozen pud is sure to impress. You can also serve it with a spoonful of Greek yogurt for a creamy contrast to this easy dessert.
Put the sugar and ginger in a pan with 400ml (2/3pt) water. Bring to the boil, then simmer for 8 minutes over a low heat until syrupy. Remove from the heat and discard the ginger. Leave to cool a little, then chill until cold.
In a blender or food processor, whizz the kiwis, mint and lime juice until smooth. Combine with the cold sugar syrup, then pour into a shallow, freezer-proof container and freeze for 1 hour.
Using a fork, break up the ice crystals and return to the freezer. Mix with a fork every 30 minutes until it reaches a gravel-like consistency. To serve, spoon into glasses and garnish with the extra kiwi slices and a spoonful of Greek yogurt, if you like.
