The flavour of dragon fruit is so subtle, but it’s definitely there.
A hint of vanilla and the chill of the sorbet coax out its delicate melon-like fragrance to pair perfectly with the salted vanilla ‘nice-cream’.

Just a touch of chocolate sauce is needed to bring it all together for a slightly unusual but divine sundae!
