Strawberry Fool. What a silly name, right? Traditionally an English dessert, a fool is made by mixing stewed fruit with fresh custard. And in this case we are using fresh strawberries and whipped cream in lieu of custard. This makes this dessert easy to “whip” up and serve to your guests in under 10 minutes.
How To Make Strawberry Fool
For this easy spring dessert you will need:
- Fresh strawberries
- Heavy Whipping Cream
Start by whipping the cream. To the bowl of your mixer add 2 cups of heavy whipping cream and 1/4 cup of sugar. Whip until stiff peaks form (about 3-4 minutes).
Next, hull and quarter 1 lb. of fresh strawberries. Add them to your blender and pulse until blended, but still chunky.
Take half the strawberry puree and half the whipped cream and fold them together in a small bowl.
Now it’s time to assemble your this easy spring dessert. Using a coupe, glass, jar or small bowl, Place a dollop of whipped cream at the bottom. Add a spoonful of strawberry puree and then top with the strawberry fool mixture.
