This recipe comes from a vegan cookbook, which if I ignore the nuts is great for people with food allergies. This recipe is really easy but remember to stir with a fork while its freezing or its very watery.
Gluten free, dairy free, egg free, nut free, optional- soya free
16 floz water
3 tbsp maple syrup
4oz caster sugar
3oz cocoa powder
2oz plain dark chocolate (try to find soya free if allergic)
Red fruits to serve
1. Place water, maple syrup, sugar and cocoa into a saucepan. Heat gently, stirring occasionally until sugar is completely dissolved.
2. Remove from heat, add chocolate and stir until melted. Leave to cool.
3. If you have one, tip into an ice cream maker and churn until frozen. If you don't have one, pour into a freezer proof container and freeze. Remove from freezer when slushy and whisk until smooth. Repeat as needed and serve with red fruit.
