A fruit fool has been around for a good long time. Wikipedia says since the mid-16th century! It is traditionally a combination of pureed fruit and custard or cream.
I decided to use some those amazing strawberries that keep coming from my garden to try this dessert out.
I used 3 cups of strawberries. I diced them up and then sprinkled them with sugar and let them sit for a bit.
I then pureed up one cup of the strawberries and left the other two cups diced. Whip up some cream and mix together some plain Greek yogurt and brown sugar.
I topped mine with a little bit more whipped cream and a Lorna Doone cookie.
- 3 C strawberries diced
- 1/8 - 1/4 C sugar depending on how sweet your berries are
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 C brown sugar
- 1 1/4 C whipping cream whipped
- 8 oz. container of plain Greek yogurt
Combine strawberries with sugar in a bowl and allow to sit for 20-30 minutes
Remove one cup of strawberries and blend in a blender or food processor.
Add back in with the diced berries.
Mix together brown sugar and yogurt and vanilla.
Fold strawberry mixture into yogurt
Whip cream and then fold into yogurt mixture.
Refrigerate until ready to serve.
Serve in a pretty dish.
