A creamy fruity fool has to be one of the best summer desserts. Light and silky, it makes good use of seasonal produce and can be whipped up in no time at all.
I start with 200g of fresh berries. You could puree the fruit in a food processor if you want it super smooth but I just pop the lot in a big bowl and smush it with a fork. Add in a tablespoon of icing sugar just to sweeten it a little, then fold in 250ml of whipped cream and…that’s it! It really couldn’t get any easier.
This will serve four and I like to divide it in to individual portions. Berries and cream are a match made in heaven and I love the fruity bits throughout. This is perfectly delicious on its own but it’s often served with buttery shortbread biscuits on the side — an absolute must for an extra indulgent treat!
