Summer Sweets: Strawberry and Orange Fool

This light and easy dessert is quick to prepare and can be chilled and ready to go in an hour – the blitzed strawberries, yogurt and cream come together as a sweet pudding for the perfect finale to an al fresco dinner in the garden.

Serves: 6                            Prep time: 1 hour

You’ll need

  • 400g strawberries (with a few extra for garnish)
  • juice of one orange
  • 1-2 drops of orange essence (optional)
  • 300ml double cream
  • 300ml thick Greek yoghurt
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 1 tbsp caster sugar


  1. Wash and chop the strawberries, keeping some aside for the garnish. Place the chopped strawberries in a bowl, roughly mash them up and fold in the orange juice and orange essence (if using) and the icing sugar.
  2. In a separate bowl, whip the cream until stiff peaks form and then gently fold in the yoghurt and finally the strawberry mixture. Pour into 6 glasses and chill for at least 1 hour.
  3. Just before serving, take the reserved strawberries, cut in half and roll the pointed end in the caster sugar before arranging the two halves on the top of the fool.
