Nectarine and Macadamia Sundae

Published : June 23, 2015

The combination of the fruit and nuts in this dish is superb!

Serves: 4


1/3 cup raw macadamias
Vanilla ice cream, to serve
2 yellow nectarines, cut into wedges
2 white nectarines, cut into wedges
Ice cream topping, to serve


  • Preheat oven to 200 C.
  • Place the macadamias on an oven tray and cook for 5 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Remove from oven, cool and chop roughly.
  • To assemble the sundae, place a few scoops of ice cream in four serving bowls.
  • Top with nectarine wedges and a drizzle of ice cream topping.
  • Sprinkle with chopped macadamias and serve immediately.

Note: Raspberry topping was used in this recipe, however the sundae works just as well with caramel or strawberry topping.

Nectarine Facts
  • In Australia Nectarines are in season from late November to March. 
  • The word ‘nectarine' means sweet as nectar, and this is very likely the obvious origin of the name.
  • To select a perfect nectarine, look for a fragrant, firm and richly coloured fruit, with glossy smooth skin.  At the stem end, make sure that the nectarine is either yellow (for yellow varieties) or white (for white varieties), and make sure you handle the fruit with care to avoid bruising.
  • Nectarines are best ripened in a bowl at room temperature or if you are planning to eat them quickly, store in the fridge for up to three days.  To ripen quickly, place in a paper bag with a banana.
  • Nectarines are best eaten with the skin on as it is the skin that holds a lot of the goodness and flavour.
