Ingredients
  • 800ml lemonade
  • 2 x 12g sheets of gelatine leaves
  • 150ml Asda Double Cream, lightly beaten
  • 227g punnet Asda Fresh Strawberries, washed, quartered and hulled
  • 3 or 4 thin slices cucumber (optional)
  • Mint leaves (to decorate)
Method
  • Soak the gelatine in a little cold water until soft.

  • To make a sugar syrup, put 200ml of lemonade in a small pan and heat gently. Do not boil as this will affect the gelatine.

  • Remove the gelatine from the water, squeeze to remove any excess water, and then drop into the sugar syrup and stir until completely dissolved.

  • In a large bowl, add the remaining lemonade to the sugar syrup and gelatine.

  • Divide between 6 pretty glasses, pop into the fridge and allow to set a little. When the jelly has started to thicken, add the fruit pieces and the cucumber (if using).

  • Return to the fridge and chill until set - approximately 3-4 hours or overnight. Serve decorated with fresh mint leaves and cream.
