4th of July Ideas: Apple-Berry Fool

Forgive me for adding a British fool to a fourth of July menu. I do not apologise for your taste buds exploding, though.

I had never made a fool before today so I wasn’t 100% sure of its final look and taste. Also, if you did not know this before, I rarely taste my food while preparing it so this was a huge gamble as I was serving this to people.

Fortunately for me, it was a huge hit and seconds were ordered.

This fool is so delightful. It is so delicious and sweet although no artificial sugars were added to it. The nutrients in it are the same as that of the previous recipe although it has a greater calcium, cobalamin (vitamin B-12), ergocalciferol (vitamin D-2) and vitamin E content. As usual, an elaboration of these nutrients can be found in the Nutrient Index.

Without going further on how amazing this fool is, here’s the recipe!

Bon Appétit!


 

Ingredients

Base

Braeburn Apples, finely chopped

Lime, freshly squeezed (1/2 a lime per apple)

Strawberries, finely chopped (1-4 per apple, depending on size)

Date Syrup

Filling

Vegan Greek/Strained Yoghurt

Strawberries, mashed thoroughly

Topping

Blueberries

Strawberry juice (from mashed strawberries)

 

Method

Base

  • Combine all the base ingredients in a saucepan and place it on a stove at medium heat stirring often till the apples soften.
  • Scoop some of the mixture into dessert dishes or cups, push it down and smoothen out the top using the back of a spoon.
  • Set the dishes or cups in the fridge for at least 10 minutes (till they are completely cooled and set)

Filling

  • Take the dishes out of the fridge and scoop some of the vegan Greek/strained yoghurt over the base.
  • Add a few tablespoons of the mashed/puréed strawberries over it and using a fork, gently mix it to create a mixture of red and white colours (rather than a uniform pink colour)
  • Add another scoop of the yoghurt and smooth out the top of the filling using the back of a spoon.

Topping

  • Place blueberries across the top of the filling.
  • Drizzle some of the reserved juice from the mashed strawberries and drag the bits of it over the final layer of yoghurt using a fork.
  • Place the dishes or cups in the fridge to set for at least a 15 minutes in order for it to set a bit.

Serve.
