Peach Melba Parfaits

  • Yield: 8 servings.


  • 4 cups vanilla low-fat ice cream, softened
  • 1 cup mashed peeled peaches (about 3/4 pound)
  • 1 tablespoon amaretto
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 none (12-ounce) package unsweetened frozen raspberries, thawed
  • 3 tablespoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Grand Marnier or other orange-flavored liqueur
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh raspberries
  • 8 none peach slices (optional)


Combine low-fat ice cream, peaches, amaretto, and vanilla in a freezer-safe container; stir well. Freeze until firm.

Place thawed raspberries, sugar, and liqueur in a blender, and process until smooth. Press the raspberry mixture through a sieve, reserving puree; discard seeds. Cover and chill.

Spoon 2 teaspoons raspberry puree into each of 8 parfait glasses or champagne flutes. Top each with about 1 1/2 tablespoons of fresh raspberries and 1/4 cup ice-cream mixture. Repeat layers, ending with 2 teaspoons raspberry puree. Garnish with peach slices, if desired.
