Peaches add tons of immune system-boosting vitamin C to this simple yet delicious dessert, while raspberries pack in antioxidants, which help protect the body's cells against free radical damage, which can cause aging and potentially lead to certain types of cancer. 

This dish pairs beautifully with vanilla ice cream or simple whipped cream flavored with a little vanilla.
