- Ready In:
- 1⁄2 cup whipping cream
- 3⁄4 cup sour cream or 3/4 cup creme fraiche
- 4 cups berries
- 1⁄2 cup sugar
- Whip 1/2 cup (125 mL.) whipping cream and stir in 3/4 cup (175 mL.) of dairy sour cream or créme fraiche.
- Then make a decision: Do you want a smooth fool or a lumpy fool? If the answer is smooth, puree 4 cups (1 L.) of berries with 1/2 cup (125 mL.) sugar (less if they taste sweet enough) in a blender or food processor. Fold the cream into the fruit puree and chill. If you want a lumpy fool, mash the strawberries and sugar together with a potato masher, then fold in the cream.

Awesome!!! Made this to serve one and it was a great treat for breakfast for me!! I know it should be considered a dessert, but I figured that it has the calcium and fruit so I made it breakfast, and what a great treat for breakfast!!! I also made this a smooth fool, as I used frozen strawberries, no longer in season. Thanks for sharing bluemoon!!! Made for stars tag!!!!
This is terrific. SO easy and yummy. I was a bit short on the strawberries so I made up the difference with some frozen raspberries. It was a great flavor pairing that I whizzed to smooth. I skipped the whipped cream to save a bit on the fat and used fat free sour cream. It was still delicious and a very worthy way to use the last of this years berries.

July 2008 update: VERY happy to be back on Zaar after about a two year absence due to having had no internet connection at home, and having been too unwell for a time so that getting re-connected wasn't even a priority! <br> <br>And really looking forward to getting back into the Zaar world and connecting again with the many wonderful people I knew before, and new people, of course!
