Colin Fass­nidge and Louise Keats re­make the ice-cream sun­dae. Which grown-up take on this child­hood clas­sic will you scream for? - - THIS MONTH -

Ice-cream sun­daes are not just for kids, es­pe­cially when Colin Fass­nidge and Louise Keats cre­ate their own grown-up ver­sions.

“Syrupy berries, vel­vety ice-cream, choco­late, tof­fee. Enough said!”

the base of my sun­dae is a gor­geous, rich ice-cream that’s in­fused with lemon thyme and bay leaves. The herbs add a sub­tle aro­matic note, which works re­ally well be­cause the ice-cream is rich in fat from the pure cream and large quan­tity of egg yolks. It’s def­i­nitely go­ing to be one of the creami­est ice-creams you’ll ever eat! The straw­ber­ries com­ple­ment it per­fectly and help to bring out the flavours. For me, a sun­dae isn’t com­plete with­out choco­late sauce. Here, I’m go­ing with a dark, slightly bit­ter choc-malt ganache. If you can’t find malt ex­tract, use golden syrup in­stead – it works just as well. Top ev­ery­thing off with crunchy shards of al­mond pra­line for the ul­ti­mate sun­dae that’s per­fect for kids and kids at heart.

made with co­conut cream rather than cow’s milk, this sun­dae is per­fect for any­one on a dairy-free diet. Just make sure you use a dairy-free choco­late for the sauce. To make the ice-cream re­ally creamy I’ve also added av­o­cado flesh, which pro­vides a dose of healthy fats, too. I’ve teamed the co­conut flavour with matcha, one of the rich­est tea sources of cat­e­chins, which are a type of an­tiox­i­dant known for their po­ten­tial health ben­e­fits. Matcha also con­tains L-thea­nine, an amino acid that has been found to im­prove alert­ness. And, of course, what’s a sun­dae with­out a driz­zle of choco­late? Use dark choco­late, which has more flavonoid an­tiox­i­dants. These are linked to an im­proved mood, mak­ing this a guar­an­teed win­ner!


“I’ve pumped up all the el­e­ments here.”

My aim was to cre­ate a great bal­ance of flavours and tex­tures.

This un­usual flavour combo is sure to put a smile on your face.
