This refreshing dessert that's low in sugar is based on a mint tisane, set to a soft jelly with chunks of fresh fruit.
- STEP 1
Soak the gelatine in a bowl of cold water. Put on the kettle and when it boils pour 1 litre of the boiling water over the mint leaves. Leave to infuse for 5 mins then strain into a large jug. Squeeze the excess moisture from the soaked gelatine then stir it into the hot mint mixture until dissolved. Set aside to cool.
- STEP 2
Cut the peel and pith from the grapefruit with a sharp knife then cut between the segments to release them, reserving any juice. Cut the segments into about 3 pieces each then distribute the grapefruit, raspberries and peaches between 6 glasses. Stir any grapefruit juice into the mint jelly then pour it into the glasses and chill until set.
