This no-bake dessert is guaranteed to cool you off in the summer heat. I really enjoy the texture—rich and creamy Panna Cotta balanced by the sweet and pulpy texture of the peach puree. —Andrea Campbell, Los Angeles, California

  • 4 medium peaches, peeled and pitted
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 envelope (1/4 ounce) unflavored gelatin
  • 1 cup peach nectar, chilled
