60g caster sugar
500g fresh or frozen blueberries
250ml chilled pomegranate juice, such as Pom


1. In a small pan, gently heat the sugar with 60ml water until dissolved. Bring to the boil and simmer for 1 minute; leave to cool.

2. Whizz the blueberries and pomegranate juice in a blender until puréed. Pour through a fine-meshed sieve, using a spatula to scrape as much juice through as possible; discard the skins from the sieve. Stir in the cooled sugar syrup.

3. Chill for a couple of hours, then  churn in an ice-cream machine until thickened and the blade begins to slow down. Transfer to a lidded, freezeproof container and freeze for at least 3 hours, until firm
