Peach Melba

Author Notes: "Your body is not a temple, it's an amusement park. Enjoy the ride."... Anthony Bourdain. This is one of our favorite rides, concocted by my wife after a visit to one of our favorite Italian restaurants. Quality ingredients, as in most recipes, can elevate this treat from very good to truly memorable.MTDavids

In This Recipe


  1. Place raspberries, orange juice, and honey in a blender. Blend well. Send through a strainer to remove seeds.
  2. Slice peaches into twelve sections and remove skin. Halve or chop each slice.
  3. To assemble, place a scoop of ice cream in the bottom of each deep desert dish or glass.
  4. Top with peach and 1 tablespoon of sauce. Repeat for second layer.
  5. Finish each with a scoop of ice cream and place in freezer for 15 minutes before serving. Do not allow to stay in the freezer too long or the peaches become flavorful, tooth-breaking marbles.
