4 small parsnip, trim ends, peel and slice into approx. ½ cm disks
1 bunch basil, picked and washed, reserve small leaves for garnish
½ lemon, juiced
¾ C water
½ punnet cherry tomatoes, trim ends & cut in half

Blend basil, water and lemon juice together. Pour into a container, cover and freeze for ½ hour, then rake with a fork. Freeze for a further hour, break up and blend again until smooth. Cover and return to freezer until ready for use.
