A cool twist on a classic

Peach Melba a classic that is perfect for summerIn the heat of summer it is often too hot to fuss with or eat complicated desserts. It is the perfect time for ice cream.  

I can’t believe that one of my favourite ice creams, Häagen-Dazs is 50 years old! All vanilla-based Häagen-Dazs ice creams are made with only the best natural vanilla extract. Even today, all of the fresh cream and milk that goes into each Häagen-Dazs ice cream is typically used within 48 hours of its arrival. It’s these quality details that make it one of my favourites and perfect for serving, even for entertaining.
 
This summer Häagen-Dazs has brought back two classic flavours for a limited time. Chocolate Chocolate Chunk is a deliciously rich recipe that combines Häagen-Dazs chocolate ice cream with fudge chunks. Pralines & Cream infuses pure creamy vanilla ice cream with crunchy praline pecans and thick rich swirls of caramel.
For a cool classic dessert twist, make a Peach Melba with Haagen-Dazs Pralines and Cream. It is delicious made with the original vanilla too. Try Häagen-Dazs Vanilla Bean for a rich taste. Chef Auguste Escoffier invented the Peach Melba in 1892 or 1893 at The Savoy Hotel in London in honour the Australian opera singer Nellie Melba. It consisted of vanilla ice cream, peachesm and raspberry sauce, and is still popular today.
Peel and chill 2-3 peaches
Puree 1 cup of fresh or frozen raspberries and 1 tbsp. extra fine sugar and 1 tbsp. of orange liqueur (optional).
