Blackcurrant and lime fool

Mon, 27th Apr 2015

A berry fool is one of easiest desserts you can make. This classic is usually made with crushed berries but my version is even easier as I use my blackcurrant syrup. All you need is a couple of ingredients. This is a very simple dessert that you can put together at the last minute.

  • 2½ cups heavy cream
  • ⅓ cup Considered Blackcurrant syrup
  • ⅓ cup icing sugar
  • 4 tbsp fresh lime juice
  • Fruit (optional)
  • Edible flowers* to decorate (optional)

  1. 1. Whip the cream and the icing sugar with a whisk in a large bowl until stiff peaks form.
  2. 2. Beat in the lime juice.
  3. 3. Very gently fold in the syrup. I like to leave it with a rippled effect so don’t over mix.
  4. 4. Spoon into glasses and drizzle with a little extra syrup.
  5. 5. Add fruit if you wish or decorate with edible flowers*. If you are using fresh flowers serve immediately.
  6. *Please make sure the flowers have not been sprayed with any chemicals.
