South African Nectarine Sundae…

South African Nectarine Sundae.

A nice and tasty fruity treat, perfect for after a big dinner, light lunch or snack at any time of the day for a little treat.

Preparation time: 25 minutes, plus cooling

Serves: 4

How To Make South African Nectarine Sundae:



  1. Plunge the nectarines in boiling water for 30 seconds. Transfer them to a bowl of iced water, then drain, peel and then cut in half.
  2. In a pot just large enough to hold the nectarines, stir together 500ml of water, 100g sugar, the ginger and lemongrass. Squeeze in the lime juice, and add the nectarine halves.
  3. Bring to boil, add the nectarines, and boil for 1 minute more.
  4. Let the nectarines cool in the syrup, then cut 3 into chunks and puree the other 3.
  5. Discard the lime halves, strain the syrup, and keep to one side.
  6. Whip the cream with the vanilla until medium peaks form, and then fill the bottoms of 4 serving glasses with the nectarine puree. Share the cream mixture between the glasses, then top with the nectarine chunks and blueberries.
  7. Spoon over some of the reserved syrup. Finish each serving with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.

* Top tip: to reduce the fat content, use low-fat Greek yogurt in place of the cream, and simply stir in the vanilla extract.
