Sparkling Peach Dessert

Quick look

  • prep 10 min
  • serves 4

If time allows, chill the wine glasses or dessert dishes first.


  • 4 ripe peaches
  • 4 scoops raspberry sorbet, about 1 cup in total
  • 8 tbsp. sparkling white wine, well chilled
  • 4 tbsp. chopped toasted almonds

    How to make it  10 minutes

  • 1

    Rinse the peaches and pat dry with paper towels. Halve each fruit and discard the pit. Using a small sharp knife, dice the flesh, then divide it between 4 wine glasses or dessert dishes.

  • 2

    Rinse an ice cream scoop with hot water and use to scoop the sorbet. Put a scoop on top of the peach in each glass.

  • 3

    Add 2 tablespoons sparkling wine to each glass, then sprinkle with the toasted almonds.

Some More Ideas

  • If peaches are unavailable, ripe nectarines make a good substitute.
  • When soft fruit is at is best, make Sparkling Berry Dessert. Use 10 ounces strawberries, halved, or a mixture of raspberries and blueberries. You can also use a mixed-berry sorbet, instead of raspberry, or frozen vanilla yogurt.
  • Replace the almonds with 4 tablespoons chopped, toasted hazelnuts.
  • Instead of sparkling wine (or even champagne), use a dessert wine, such as French Beaume de Venise.

Although sorbets can be very high in calories because of the sugar they contain, they are much lower in fat than ice cream.


Peaches are an excellent source of vitamin C (1 medium-size peach provides around 10 percent of the recommended daily amount). They also provide useful amounts of fiber and are low in calories.
