Summer Berry Fool

A quick and easy, no-bake dessert made with sweetened whipped cream, a mix of luscious Summer berries and biscuit crumbs. Perfect to make-ahead of time, everyone will fall in love with these creamy, refreshing pots of heaven!
Prep Time 10 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 3 -4 individual desserts

Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp icing sugar
  • 8 oz (225g) frozen summer berry mix*
  • 1/4 cup (up to) water, amount needed will depend entirely on how thick your pureed berries are
  • 2 cups (480ml) double/heavy cream
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/3 cup (40g) icing sugar, sifted
  • 1/2 cup (60g) crushed shortbread biscuits
  • Extra berries to garnish, optional

Instructions

  1. Place icing sugar and frozen berries into a food processor and blitz until smooth. To begin with the mixture will be thick and sorbet like, add water, 1tbsp at a time until you have a thick, yet runny enough mix to spoon into pots easily. Leave to one side.
  2. Place cream, vanilla and sifted icing sugar into a medium sized bowl and either whisk by hand, or beat with a hand mixer until thick, creamy and it holds it's shape when you pull the beater out. Leave to one side.
  3. Have the crushed biscuits to hand and then get 3-4 individual sized ice cream/dessert bowls ready.
  4. Get ready to layer!: Place a heaping tablespoon of the fruit puree into the bottom of each dish, then sprinkle some biscuit crumbs on top. Then place 2 heaping tablespoons of the cream mixture on top of the fruit mixture and smooth over slightly, being careful not to mix the layers together.
  5. Repeat the fruit, biscuit, cream mixture until all of the mixture is divided between your dessert bowls. (I made 3 bowls, with 4 layers of fruit puree and 3 layers of cream, but my bowls were quite large)
  6. Try to make sure fruit puree is the last layer, then add a few more frozen berries to garnish and finish with another sprinkle of biscuits.
  7. Summer Berry Fools will keep covered, in the fridge for 2 days.

Recipe Notes

*You can use any mixture of frozen Summer fruit you want, the amount of sugar you add will need to differ depending on how sweet your fruit is.
