Strawberry Fool

Today was such day when I was craving for some mood uplifting, indulging dessert. Rich and decadent fool is what I thought of. You can use any fruits such as Cherries, Raspberries, Blackberries, Mango, Plum, Passionfruit, Kiwi etc instead of Strawberries that I have used today.

Strawberry Fool

Strawberry Fool


Strawberry – 1 lb
Sugar – 1/2 cup
Lemon juice – 1 tsp
Chopped Mint leaves – 1 tsp
Light cream – 2 cups
Vanilla powder – 1/2 tsp


1. Wash and slice the strawberries. Reserve a few for garnish. Add the remaining into a blender container. Add mint leaves, sugar and lemon juice and blend until smoothly pureed.
2. Add vanilla to the light cream. Whip the light cream until stiff peaks form.
3. Gently using a rubber spatula, fold in the the pureed strawberry with the cream. Cover and refrigerate for about an hour.
4. To serve, spoon the refrigerated cream+strawberry puree mixture into cups and drizzle with the reserved strawberry puree. Garnish with the strawberry slices.

Updated June 15th ’09: I forward Strawberry Fool to Happy Cook for the event – Strawberry Feast, that she is hosting this month on her blog for her love for Strawberries. Hope she enjoys it.

  15. Mona,
    if it is light cream, will stiff peaks really form? I thought this only happens with heavy cream .. I wonder if I can find the right cream in the regular grocery store..

    Nazia, you can use heavy cream if you like instead.
