Blackcurrant Coulis and Icecream:

I created this light summery dessert using Barker's new Lite Blackcurrant fruit syrup. The coulis has an intense berry flavour and can be made in seconds in the microwave. Simply pour a little of the hot syrup over  a scoop of vanilla icecream .
Barker's has replaced half the sugar in their blackcurrant syrup with a natural sweetener called Stevia which substantially cuts down on the calories.
This coulis could also taste wonderful over meringues filled with whipped cream.
Serves 3-4 .
1/3 cup of Barker's Lite Squeezed New Zealand Blackcurrants Fruit Syrup.
1 teaspoon of cornflour
Pour the syrup into a microwave safe jug.
Thoroughly whisk the cornflour in.
Cook on high for 30 seconds in the microwave.
Continue to microwave, stirring every 10 seconds until the syrup has thickened.
Pour while still hot over scoops of vanilla ice cream.
