Minted Strawberry Fool(Proof)

This delicious dessert recipe was most recently served at my parents 29th (Yay Mom and Dad!) anniversary dinner and it was the one thing I let the whole family try. Everyone loved it! I personally couldn’t get enough. Beware! If you like this as much as I do – it won’t feed six, it’ll feed maybe two…

Strawberry Fool is a traditional British recipe for a classic dessert of strawberries in a mix of double cream and Greek yogurt flavored with mint and liqueur. A very simple version is given here and because of the simplicity of this recipe, I’ve added the (Proof) to the name!


Minted Strawberry Fool(Proof)

1 lb strawberries (hulled)
2 Tbsp sugar
2 Tbsp fresh mint leaves
1 c. heavy whipping cream
6 oz plain yogurt

Makes enough for six people.

Save a couple of strawberries for garnish.

Puree berries, sugar and mint in a food processor or blender. Taste to make sure they are sweet enough and add more sugar if needed.

Whip cream until it holds firm peaks. Fold in yogurt. Fold in berry mixture. Chill until needed or serve immediately. Garnish with slices of strawberries.

This dessert is perfect for the middle of summer – or just to REMIND you of summer when the rain seems endless and the sun refuses to shine…
