Classic Blackberry Fool

Makes 6 to 8 servings

500 grams blackberries (fresh or frozen)

½ cup sugar

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

Juice & zest of 1 lemon

1 ⅓ cups heavy (whipping) cream

1 cup Greek yoghurt

1 tablespoon maple syrup

Fresh mint, for garnish

  1. Heat a saucepan over medium-heat and add the blackberries, sugar, vanilla, and juice of 1 lemon, and stir well to combine.
  2. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook for 4 – 5 minutes, until the berries have softened but still hold their shape. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  3. In the bowl of a stand mixer (or armed with a whisk & forearm strength), whip the cream until thick and glorious. Fold in the yoghurt, lemon zest, and maple syrup, mixing well. Fold in ½ of the blackberry juice. Beautiful!
  4. Build the desserts in glasses by layering the cream mixture and blackberry mixture, about 2 tablespoons of each at a time, until the glasses are just about full (reserving about 1 cup of blackberry mixture for topping). Top each dessert with the reserved blackberries, then garnish with fresh mint. Serve & Eat Delicious!
