"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."

"delicious and wonderful I used wild blueberries (frozen) and will make this a lot"
"A very nice alternative for dessert, would be good with other types of berries as well. Thanks for posting!"
"This was so good I will make it again,and again"
"Wonderful - a guilt-free dessert. I used low-fat Greek yoghurt. This was very tasty and easy. Definitely a 5-star recipe."
"Very good, very tasty, very easy, so light and so beautiful! I used only low fat greek yogurt and almond extract! The cream was fantastic! Its a keeper and now that strawberries are in season its my favorite dessert. Thanks for sharing another great recipe Toni!"
"I love this dessert;I only put 1 tsp of sugar at the beginning.It is great...low fat but tastes like you are cheating.Will make this one again.Thank you for sharing."
"This is absolutely delicious, what a great summertime dessert! I made this using full-fat sour cream and I used Greek yogurt also I increased the confectioners sugar, we loved this Toni, thanks for sharing hon!...Kitten:)"
"Delicious!!! The plain fat-free yogurt I used was very runny so I decided to drain it first for about 1/2 hour - am glad I did, and will drain even more the next time as I'd love an even thicker texture. Great creamy taste with just a hint of tartness from the yogurt! Thanks for a great recipe!"
"A sensational recipe! Both when I was making it and even more when eating it, it was really hard to believe that this recipe was SO low in fat. I followed the recipe exactly, except for using only 2 tablespoons of sugar in step one – and using raspberries rather than strawberries – because I’d bought raspberries for another recipe, and because I prefer them to strawberries. I generally cut back the sugar in recipes. This recipe makes eating such a dessert something that you don’t have to relegate to the “make only occasionally category” (in the interests of your health) and it is a recipe that you can confidently serve at a dinner party. Unlike so many low fat recipes, it just doesn’t look or taste low fat. Thanks toni!"
"Too delish to be light! I used all yogurt just added an 3T to the pint used. I buy nonfat yogurt by the truckload. Love the tart flavor and it is much lower in fat and better for you than sour cream so I use it as a sub often. This recipe is simply awesome! Thanks Toni!"
"Absolutely heavenly. I knew from the start when I was mixing everything how well this was going to taste. Couldn't hardly wait the two hour chilling time. Loved it and I am not sharing with anyone here.I made as exactly posted but I did not have clear vanilla but that was not a problem at all. Thanks for a new favorite strawberry recipe Toni!!!!"
