Green apples, with their small percentage of sugar, always remind me of a fruit that is refreshing and cool. This summer recipe uses green apples in three forms—as gelato, a sauce, and as a decoration. Together, with a slightly alcoholic finish, they create an appropriate way to close a summer dinner of fish and vegetables.
MINI GREEN APPLE CUP
Preparation time: 20 minutes
4 Toschi mini green apples in alcohol
4 tablespoons of alcohol from the Toschi green apples
4 scoops of green apple gelato
2 green apples
8 fresh basil leaves
the juice of 1 lemon
4 tablespoons of sugar
- Wash the apples and cut into pieces while maintaining the skin. Put them in a blender along with the basil leaves, sugar, and lemon. Blend for a few seconds until a smooth consistency is obtained.
- Prepare the cups using a champagne glass. Pour in 1 tablespoon of alcohol from the Toschi green apples into each glass, then place a scoop of gelato and on top, and top with a spoonful or two of the apple mixture. Complete the preparation with a small Toschi green apple. Serve immediately.
