HOW TO MAKE COCONUT SORBET

- 60g liquid glucose
- 1x150g packet coconut milk powder (by Maggi, widely available)
- raspberries and fresh coconut slivers
- Put the sugar and 400ml water into a saucepan over a gentle heat until the sugar has dissolved. Bring to the boil for 2-3 minutes, take off the heat and stir in the glucose. Whisk in the coconut milk powder, pour into a jug and once cool, put in the fridge to get really cold.
- If you're using an ice cream maker, just churn until nearly frozen and put in the freezer,. Otherwise, put in the freezer in a lidded box; once nearly frozen, whizz up and refreeze. Do this twice. Serve straight from the freezer with the raspberries and fresh coconut.
