While I love the flavour combination of peach, raspberry and vanilla, the poached peach itself is too heavy for me so I decided to give this recipe a spin. To keep the lovely taste of fresh peaches while adding lovely sweetness to this dessert I opted for a raw sorbet.

Ingredients

  • 1.25 kg peaches very ripe
  • 2 tsp lemon juice
  • 4 tbsp agave
  • 400 g raspberries
  • 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 tbsp water

Instructions

  • To make the sorbet pit the peaches and puree them in a food processor with 2 tsp of lemon juice and 4 tbsp of agave. Peeling them is optional since the skin is very soft and blends up.

  • Pour the fruit puree into an ice cream machine and process it.

  • Transfer into a freezer friendly dish and freeze for another 1-3 hours before serving if you want a scoopable sorbet.

  • While the peach sorbet is chilling you can make your raspberry sauce. Add the raspberries, 2 tbsp sugar and 2 tbsp of water to a saucepan and gently bring to a simmer over low to medium heat.

  • Blitz the berries with 2 tbsp of water in a blender and strain the puree through a mesh sieve. Use a spoon to make sure you press all the liquids out and have only seeds left in your sieve. Discard the seeds and pour the pure fruit into a sauce pan. Add the sugar and bring to a simmer over low to medium heat.

  • Gently simmer until the liquid has reduced by about a third and looks more like a sauce. Remove the pot from the heat and set aside to cool.

  • Once ready to serve scoop vanilla ice cream and raspberry sorbet into bowls. Pour over the cold raspberry sauce and garnish with a few fresh berries.

Notes

If you don't have an ice cream machine then you can also pour the peach puree into a freezer friendly dish and place it as it is in the freezer. Set a timer and give it a good stir every 30 minutes until it is frozen.
