Forget multi-coloured bagels and unicorn cupcakes, the new trend is for something altogether darker – black coconut ice-cream.
The unusual colour comes from vegetable ash which creates activated charcoal, and is then mixed with coconut cream, topped with chocolate popping candy and served in a coconut shell.
Malmaison has launched it for a limited time only, alongside a new Pina Colada flavour, infused with white rum, topped with freeze dried raspberries and glace cherries, and served in a baby pineapple.
Both limited edition ice creams cost £5.50 and will be available across Malmaison’s 15 hotels to take away or eat in.
