1. Mix the vanilla seeds with the fruit. Freeze until frozen solid. To speed this process up, arrange the vanilla-speckled fruit in a single layer on a baking tray or in a metal dish – it’ll get them cold faster.
2. Once frozen, break up the pieces. Put them in a food processor with 2 tbsp icing sugar. Whiz until it all starts coming together. It’ll look icy and a bit like a gratin but will start coming together like a sorbet when you scoop it out. Taste. Whiz in a bit more sugar, if needed.
3. Spoon into glasses (chilled glasses – i.e. popped into the freezer before serving) will keep the ice icy for longer. It’ll melt quickly so eat straight away.
