Strawberry Fool

According to good ol’ Wiki “A fool is an English dessert. Traditionally, fruit fool is made by folding pureed stewed fruit into sweet custard. Modern fool recipes often skip the traditional custard and use whipped cream.”

The fool of my childhood was usually gooseberry made indeed with custard and not cream, I can’t say I was particularly partial to it! I make this version for my kids, or more often they can now make for me. Simply crushed strawberries stirred through whipped cream and Greek yogurt. A mightily impressive pud with minimal effort, literally whipped up in a few minutes. What’s not to love? A great recipe for children to make on their own too. If you have a rotary whisk they’re ideal for little ones to use, if not, either get them exercising some muscle power with a balloon whisk or supervise an electric hand held whisk.

Try also making a fool with crushed raspberries, peaches or apricots or cooked gooseberriesapple and blackberries or ginger and rhubarb (the latter being a Fressh stall favourite).

Easy Strawberry Fool

Ingredients Prep Time:10 Mins, Cook Time: , Total Time: 10 Mins

275g Strawberries
200ml Double Cream
75ml Greek Yogurt
1 dessertspoon Honey, or more to taste
1/2 Lemon

1. Wash and remove the stalks from the strawberries, cut into large pieces and place in a mixing bowl.
2. Crush the strawberries a little with a potato masher, or chop with a knife. If there is lots of liquid strain some away so the fool is not too runny. Stir through a squeeze of lemon juice. Set aside.
3. Whip the cream in another bowl with a balloon whisk or electric whisk, until when you lift the whisk the cream forms little peaks. Whisk in the yogurt and a spoon of honey.
4. Using a large spoon, fold the crushed strawberries into the bowl of cream until fairly well combined. Add more honey to taste.
