I have wanted to try one of the “fool” recipes I keep seeing in magazines and on other blogs. Tonight I finally took action. It is a very simple dessert taking less than ten minutes to whip up. It is related to trifles and tiramisu, a combination of pureed blackberries and whipped cream.
I cut down the sugar and added the juice of lime. It is a cool summer treat for a hot summer night.
Blackberry Lime Fool
1 pint blackberries
1 1/2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup sugar, divided
Juice of 1 lime
Puree blackberries in a blender or food processor. Strain to remove the seeds.
Add the lime juice and 1/2 of the sugar.
Whip the whipping cream until it starts to form peaks. Add the remaining sugar and continue to whip until stiff. Fold in the blackberry puree. If you want a rustic look leave it more streaked.
Place in serving dishes and refrigerate.
