Cut it into rather small pieces but without losing consistency, and then add the ice cream which can be creamy but also lemon if we prefer a lighter dessert. Who loves i berries, in the summer he can prepare a mix of strawberries, raspberries and blueberries to garnish with ice cream but in my opinion the most democratic and varied fruit salad has more taste and is also healthier.

We take some fresh plums and remove the core, boil some water and add tea and then the cut plums and wedges so that they can absorb the liquid. When the fruit has softened we can remove it from the heat and flavor it with the liqueur. When it is cold we have to put it in bowls and then garnish it with one icecream ball milk cream.
