Watermelon, orange and ginger cocktail with granola

ingredients

serves 4
10 g (1/4 oz) rolled oats
5 g (1/8 oz) sesame seeds
pinch of ground ginger
5 g (1/8 oz) sunflower seeds
2 tsp freshly squeezed orange juice
1 tsp runny honey

for the fruit cocktail

300 g (10 1/2 oz) deseeded watermelon, cut into chunks
100 g (3 1/2 oz) fresh orange segments
6 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
1 tsp finely grated orange zest
1 tsp peeled and finely sliced root ginger
1 tsp runny honey
1/2 tsp arrowroot, blended with a little cold water

method

1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/350°F/Gas Mark 4.

2. To make the granola, put all the dry ingredients into a bowl, then add the orange juice and honey and mix thoroughly. Spread out on a non-stick baking tray and bake for 7-8 minutes. Remove from the oven, break up into pieces, then return to the oven for a further 7 - 8 minutes. Remove from the oven and break up again. Leave to cool on the baking sheet. The mixture will become crunchy when cool.

3. To make the fruit cocktail, put the watermelon and orange segments into a bowl. Put the orange juice and zest, ginger and honey into a small saucepan over a medium heat and bring to the boil. Gradually stir in the arrowroot mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until thickened.

4. Pour the mixture over the fruit and leave to cool, cover and chill in the fridge.

5. Spoon the covered fruit into glasses and sprinkle over the granola.
