This is a low fat recipe that is also low in sugar, yet tastes very decadent and is absolutely delicious. It can be easily served at a dinner party to add some glamour without too much effort.


  • 4 ripe organic peaches
  • 4 cups of water
  • 2 large organic oranges, thickly sliced rind removed
  • 2 tsp organic brown sugar
  • 2 tsp organic raw honey
  • 1 vanilla bean
  • 1/2 cup organic raspberries (any other berry can be used)
  • 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
  • Yoghurt, low fat for serving
  • 1 tsp grated walnuts (or pecans) Extra raw sugar


  1. Add the water to a saucepan and bring to the boil.
  2. Add the sugar and vanilla bean and simmer until the sugar dissolves.
  3. Once the sugar has dissolved, add the peaches (peeled or unpeeled, depending on the state of the skin) and simmer in the water for about 1 minute only, carefully turning them around to make sure all sides have been immersed in the water.
  4. Remove the peaches carefully and place on absorbent paper on a plate.
  5. In a small bowl, add the honey and cinnamon and mix together.
  6. Add 4 of the orange slices to a baking tray and add the peaches on top.
  7. Drizzle about 1/2 a teaspoon of the honey mixture on the top of each of the peaches and add a slice of orange on top.
  8. Sprinkle a bit of the raw sugar on the top of each of the slices of orange.
  9. Cook at low-medium heat (150°C or 302°F) in a warm oven for about 10-20 minutes (depending on how ripe the peaches are; the more ripe, the less time baking).
  10. Serve warm with a dollop of yoghurt, topped with raspberries and grated walnuts.

The poached peaches will keep for 2-3 days in the refrigerator, just make sure to cover well.
