Delicious and gorgeous. Imagine 2 sweetened peach halves swimming in a puddle of raspberry sauce. Quick and easy, too; the perfect recipe. This also works well with nectarines and blackberries or any combination of those four. Cook time is chill time.

Simple and tasty! I used fresh peaches from the Farmers Market along with some nice juicy raspberries. My husband looked around for more after he licked his bowl clean and was so disappointed I wasn't going to share mine. LOL! This is one recipe I'll be repeating all summer.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Bring 1 cup sugar and the water to a simmer and cook until sugar is dissolved; add lemon juice and peaches and simmer until peaches are tender, about 10 minutes (test with the tip of a knife); Drain peaches and let cool enough to handle; remove peach skins and chill peaches; press raspberries through a fine sieve and catch juice in a bowl; add the remaining 2 T sugar and stir to dissolve.
  2. To serve, ladle raspberry sauce into 2 shallow soup plates; place 2 peach halves and a small scoop of ice cream in each.
