Reviews for Berry Rhubarb Fool
"A great dessert - something a little different and so easy to make. Got rave reviews. I used fresh rhubarb."
"We've really enjoyed this! Even people who don't normally like rhubarb would probably enjoy this. It's so quick, no baking, easy to make low carb when you use an alternative sweetener like stevia, and it's gluten-free!"
"For a more traditional fool, don't fully mix the rhubarb and whipped cream; it should be swirled through the cream so streaks of fruit show."
