A deconstructed peach melba is so much more fun and grown-up than the usual peach half and a dollop of ice-cream that so many restaurants think does the job. My version is healthy, sugar free and just jolly damn tasty, the perfect end to a super supper.
It’s so simple!
This little recipe is more of construction job though you are deconstructing the finished product if you see what I mean, however you are expected to approach the cooker for just a few minutes to grill the peaches and warm up your raspberries to create the sauce.
This will serve two people as a light dessert and is a fun (and possibly even romantic) way to finish off your meal.
What you will need
All you need are 2 peaches, some raspberries, squeeze lemon juice, chopped fresh basil, plain yogurt, vanilla extract, a pinch of dried chilli and a little coconut oil. Just look at all that healthy goodness and not a touch of sugar in sight, result!
So I shall leave you with this healthy dessert to get your taste buds a tingling, enjoy!
