What you talking about – fool? Yes, fool – and Apricot and Lime Fool to be exact.
This is such a simple dessert, that anyone can do this, if they can mush up some fruit and whip some cream. I saw a recipe on The Kitchen, on Food Network, for a strawberry fool and I decided to try making a variation.
There were lovely punnets of apricots in the supermarket and I had a lime lingering in the fridge. I thought the two would be a great flavour combination for my fool.
All you really need to do to make a fruit fool, is blitz the fruit and pass it through a sieve then mix into some whipped cream Easy isn’t it?
The dessert, you would think to be rich, with lots of thick cream, but the fruit really cuts through it and gives the fool a freshness.
This really is a fresh, summery dessert. And of course, you could experiment with other fruits too.
Here’s how I made mine.
I am entering these into this month’s Treat Petite, hosted by alternately by myself and this month Kat at The Baking Explorer. The theme this month is ‘Getting Fruity’ and as these fools are individual and fruity – they are perfect!
