Servings 6


  • 3 Saturn peaches
  • 100 g of sugar 1/2 cup
  • 3 yolks
  • 200 ml of whipping cream 1 cup
  • 5-6 drops of lemon juice


  • Peel the peaches.
  • Cut them into small pieces and blend them with the mixer until you get a puree with a few drops of lemon to prevent the puree from becoming dark.
  • In a bain-marie, whisk the egg yolks with sugar with the electric whisk for a few minutes.
  • Pour the peach puree flush and continue whipping for another minute (the long whipping will allow you to incorporate a lot of air, essential for the success of a semifreddo).
  • Let it cool down.
  • Whip the cream until stiff and gently add it to the yolks and peach puree mixture.
  • Distribute the mixture in the mold you prefer and let it cool in the freezer for at least 6 hours.
  • Remove your semifreddo from the freezer just before serving(melt quickly enough), soaking the mold for a few seconds in hot water, and turn it upside down on the plate.
  • Decorate with peach slices and mint leaves.
