Strawberry fool

This lovely summery dessert would work just as well with other seasonal soft fruits. Try raspberries, blackberries or stewed gooseberries.


Preparation method

  1. Place a third of the strawberries in a food processor with the icing sugar and blend to make a purée. You may have to do this in batches.

  2. Chop the remaining fruit and place in a large bowl, sprinkle over the caster sugar and set aside.

  3. Whip the cream in a very large bowl until soft peaks have formed then stir in the yoghurt, chopped strawberries and the purée.

  4. Spoon into large bowls and refrigerate until ready to serve.
