Summer Berry Fool

Quick to make a simple dessert that looks and tastes fantastic. The fruit can be varied depending on what is in season.

Serves 2-4


350g/12oz seasonal berries

Zest and/or juice of 1 lemon

125ml/4floz low fat yoghurt

50g/2oz caster sugar

Fresh seasonal berries

Sprigs of mint


Puree the fruit by passing them through a sieve or placing them in a blender and add the lemon juice and/or zest

To make the fool, beat the yoghurt. Fold two-thirds of the puree into the yoghurt, add the sugar and mix lightly. Taste and add more sugar if necessary.

Place a few berries in the base of the glasses, then spoon in alternate layers of the puree and the fool. Fill until the glasses are topped up. Decorate with a few blackcurrants or strawberries and a sprig of mint.
