Today is the final day of the Nutrition Stripped Paleta series! Check the previous posts for more paleta recipes. This recipe is a perfect way to end summer and paleta series week here at Nutrition Stripped with the fruit of the month, peaches! Peach Melba to be exact. This recipe is a perfect salute to summer or to share on Labor Day at BBQ’s, parties, and gatherings.

Peach Melba is traditionally a French dessert of vanilla ice cream, topped with sliced peaches, and a raspberry drizzle. This paleta recipe is not cream-based like the Creamy Lavender Honey, Citrus Espresso Chocolate Fudge, or Strawberry Rose; it’s a fruit-based blend of tangy raspberries and sweet peaches. Perfect for a hot summer day, light, cool, and refreshing! As with every recipe, the better quality your ingredients, the better ending result. As with all my peach recipes for the month of August I turned to the best peaches in town from The Peach Truck here in Nashville (check them out!) and stocked up on peaches as they had their end of season offerings a couple weeks ago.
