Berry Rhubarb Fool Recipe

Berry Rhubarb Fool Recipe

A "fool" is a British dessert that's usually made with custard. This is a modified, quicker version I created. My kids love it because it doesn't taste like rhubarb—so I guess it's well named! —Cheryl Miller, Fort Collins, Colorado
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 30 min. + chilling YIELD:6 servings

Ingredients

  • 3 cups sliced fresh or frozen rhubarb (1-inch pieces)
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • Dash salt
  • 1 cup heavy whipping cream
  • 2 cups fresh strawberries, halved

Directions

  • 1. In a large saucepan, combine rhubarb, sugar, orange juice and salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 6-8 minutes or until rhubarb is tender. Cool slightly.
  • 2. Process rhubarb mixture in a blender until smooth. Transfer to a bowl; refrigerate, covered, until cold.
  • 3. Just before serving, in a small bowl, whip cream until soft peaks form. Fold into pureed rhubarb. Alternately layer cream mixture and strawberries into six parfait glasses. Yield: 6 servings.

"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."
