Raspberry tapioca

1.5 litres water
100 g tapioca
2 containers Prestige raspberries
2 limes
40 g powdered sugar

Bring the water to the boil and add the tapioca. Gently simmer for 30 minutes until done. Rinse the mixture with cold water for 5 minutes. Finely purée 2 containers of raspberries in a blender and add the juice of two limes and the powdered sugar. Mix this together with the tapioca pearls and set aside for 90 minutes until the liquid has been completely absorbed.

700 g milk
400 g heavy cream
4 vanilla pods
400 g sugar
320 g egg yolk

Transfer the milk, cream and vanilla pods to a pan. Bring to the boil, turn down the heat and allow to infuse for 15 minutes. Beat the sugar and the egg yolk until frothy and fold into the liquid. Heat this mixture to 84 degrees. Turn this mixture into ice cream in a Pacojet or ice cream machine.

Chocolate sauce

250 g water
20 g cocoa powder
75 g heavy cream

Bring the raspberries, together with the Monin, raspberry liqueur and agar agar, to the boil. Blend the raspberries in a food processor until smooth (cutter) and pass the mixture through a sieve. Allow the mixture to set in the refrigerator and, when it has stiffened up sufficiently, process in a Pacojet or ice cream maker.
