Sweet desserts that say spring in one mouthful. The minty sugar is such a pretty garnish – use it for everything, from cocktails to ice-cream sundaes!

  • 1 punnet (approx 8-10 large) strawberries, hulled and chopped
  • 1/3 cup sugar, plus ¼ for mint sugar
  • ¼ cup water
  • 2 tbsp strawberry liqueur (optional)
  • 2 tbsp gelatine, plus ¼ cup water
  • 300ml cream, softly whipped
  • ¼ cup white chocolate, grated
  • Large handful of fresh mint leaves

1 Combine the strawberries, sugar, water and liqueur in a medium-sized saucepan and simmer for 10 minutes until soft.

2 Drain off ½ cup of strawberry syrup and set aside for serving. In a small bowl, sprinkle gelatine over the water and allow to rest and absorb for 5 minutes. Stir into the hot strawberries and mix until dissolved. Cool for about 20 minutes.

3 In a large bowl, fold together the strawberry mixture, whipped cream and white chocolate, and spoon into serving glasses. Chill for 2 hours or until set. To serve, drizzle with reserved strawberry syrup and sprinkle over mint sugar.

4 For mint sugar, simply whiz together the mint and sugar until fine and green.
