Juicy Peach Melba

Sunday, May 20, 2012

This is a simple classic but also a tasty & healthy dessert recipe. I prefer to eat it on a warm summer's day (so just waiting for that English summer now... hopefully it will be along some day soon ;o)


4 ripe peaches
170g/6oz raspberries
1 level tsp icing sugar
a squeeze of lime juice
8 level Tbsps reduced fat vanilla ice cream

(Serves 4)


1. Skin the peaches, then cut them in half and remove the stones. Set aside while you prepare the raspberry sauce.
2. Put the raspberries in a fine sieve and press down on them with a spoon to push the thick red puree through the sieve, removing the seeds.
3. Sweeten the raspberry puree with the icing sugar and then add a little lime juice. Stir well.
4. Place a peach half on each side of 2 level tbsps of vanilla ice cream.. Repeat with the remaining peaches and ice cream.
5.Drizzle the raspberry puree around and over the peaches and serve immediately before the ice cream melts.

ENJOY :o) emoticon

    Sounds good. Wonder if I could use yogurt? Does that sound nasty...instead of ice cream?

    I have enjoyed peach melba before, but never with lime juice ... which sounds awesome and never such a healthy take on it. Plan to try it soon. Thanks for sharing.
