Make berry syrup by adding the berries to a saucepan with 2-3 tablespoons of water over a medium heat.
Once the berries start to simmer, stir in the sugar until dissolved and mash the berries with a fork until syrupy. Strain through a sieve and leave aside to cool.
Meanwhile, prepare the fruit. Arrange in side bowls, along with shaved ice. (To make shaved ice, add ice to a food processor and blitz in batches, keeping in the freezer until ready to serve. This is a perfect make-ahead dessert)
Spoon over some of the cooled berry syrup and top with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Enjoy immediately
