Number of Servings: 7


    * Peaches, fresh, 6 cup slices
    * Water, tap, 1.75 cup
    * Splenda brown sugar blend, 23 grams (2 TBL., lightly packed) ****
    Dash salt
    * Splenda, 3 packets
    * Torani Sugar Free Hazelnut Syrup, 2 oz
    * Fresh Lime Juice, 1/2 TBL


Start with around 10 medium to large peaches. Blanch, put into cold water bath, and peel and pit; you will need 6 cups of the sliced peeled peaches. SAVE peels.
Put peels (not pits) into water in Dutch oven, along with Splenda Brown Sugar Blend. Simmer on low until slightly reduced and very fragrant - around 10-12 minutes. Strain through metal sieve over bowl, pressing down on solids to get all liquid out. You should have around 1 2/3 cup liquid. Discard peels.
Return liquid to Dutch oven, add peaches, regular Splenda, hazelnut syrup, and lime juice. Cook over low, stirring occasionally, until peaches are VERY soft, around 30 minutes.
Remove from heat and allow to cool for at least one hour. You can cool the soup in the Dutch oven (or a large bowl) in an ice-water bath to reduce the cooling time. In batches, process in blender or food processor fitted with a metal blade until smoothly pureed.
Taste to adjust for sweetness - you may add some regular Splenda at this point, if needed.
Chill for at least 3 hours or overnight.
Serve with a few fresh mint leaves and a drizzle of evaporated skim milk. You may also top with around a teaspoon of toasted hazelnuts. (Add-ons not included in nutrition information)
Total yield approx. 5 1/2 cups, for 7 servings of generous 3/4 cup portions.
**** You may omit the Splenda Brown Sugar blend and use an additional 5 packets of regular Splenda; this will reduce the calories for the recipe by 115 (reduction of 16.43 calories per serving). I like it better with the brown sugar blend, but it's a matter of personal taste.
Either way it's a delightfully refreshing dish to have on a hot summer day!
