Add raspberries and stir until combined and simmer until slightly softened, about 6-7 minutes. Remove from heat, pass through a fine sieve and place into ice cream machine to churn according to manufacturers instructions.
  • To make the Lemon Meringue, line a baking tray with baking paper. Place egg whites in the bowl of a stand mixer fitter with a whisk attachment and whisk, gradually adding the sugar until soft peaks form. Add vinegar and freeze dried lemon juice whilst whisking. Turn mixer on high and whisk until thick and glossy, about 10 minutes.
  • Meanwhile, squeeze lines of yellow colouring down the inside of the piping bag then transfer meringue into piping bag. Pipe 2cm rounds of meringue onto a paper lined baking tray and place into the oven until crisp, about 30 minutes. Remove from oven and set aside.
