Fresh and Simple Dessert Idea: Raspberry FoolsElizabeth Stark
This April Fools Day make everyone a fool, a raspberry fool that is. This tasty treat is made with yogurt, honey, and fresh fruit so you can feel great about serving it, and kids will love this simple, refreshing dessert.
A fool is a traditional English dessert and is open to tons of variation. Try any fruit you have handy, berries and stone fruits are great, or switch to all cream or yogurt. If your kids are fruit averse, this can be a great way to make it fun. If you use non-fat yogurt and just a smidgen of honey, it can make a low-calorie dessert seem really special.
1 cup raspberries, plus more for garnish
1/2 cup very thick strained yogurt (a greek variety or skiir)
1/2 cup heavy cream
3 tablespoons honey or sugar
In your food processor or blender, puree the raspberries. Pour into a small fine mesh strainer, or cheesecloth, set over a bowl and strain out the seeds.
In a large bowl, whip the cream to stiff peaks, add the honey, and then gradually add in 2 tablespoons of yogurt at a time. When the mixture is nice and thick and forms stiff peaks, fold in the raspberry puree. Spoon into a large glass or ice cream dish, and mix whole raspberries throughout. Cover and chill for at least an hour, or overnight. Serve and enjoy!
