Strawberry Fool (Light)

READY IN: 2hrs 15mins
Recipe by justcallmetoni

A traditional Fool is made with generous amounts whipped heavy cream with fruit gently folded in. This lighter alternative uses sour cream and yogurt and originated in Cooking Light. I have adapted it a bit to my own tastes and preferences.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine strawberries and granulated sugar in a large bowl. Cover and chill 2 hours.
  2. Combine brown sugar, confectioners sugar, vanilla extract and yogurt and sour cream in a blender. Blend for a minute or two so that the sugars are blended in and you have incorporated a bit of air in the dairy mix. (i've also done this with an immersion blender.) Turn out into a covered bowl and chill for 2 hours.
  3. Just before serving, gently fold the strawberry mixture into the yogurt mixture until swirled.
