Ruby Peach Melba

This is a quick and easy low-carb version of Peach Melba--a dessert created in the late 1800s for Dame Nellie Melba, an Australian opera singer. In the traditional version, the peach halves are poached in syrup, placed on a scoop of ice cream, and topped with a sweet raspberry sauce.


6 servings (serving size: 1/4 cup raspberries, 1 peach half, and 1/4 cup ice cream)
