You will love this blackberry fool that tastes fantastically creamy and delicious. It’s a lovely light and healthy dessert, thanks to blackberries, which are low in fat and high in fibre, vitamin A and calcium.

Enjoy the unusual taste of blackberries and give yourself a fibre boost!

(Please note you will need 2 hours for chilling this dessert)

Blackberry Fool

Serves 4

You will need:

450 g fresh or froze blackberries

25 g custard powder

40 g caster sugar

285 ml skimmed milk

115 g thick Greek yoghurt

1 teaspoon icing sugar


Put the custard powder into a bowl. Add 15 g of the caster sugar and blend to a smooth paste with about 4 tablespoons of the milk (use a hand wire whisk). Pour the rest of the milk into a small saucepan and bring to boil, and then stir the boiling milk into the custard powder. Return this mixture to a pan and bring back to the boil, stirring constantly until the custard has thickened and no trace of custard powder remains.

Pour the mixture into a bowl and allow to cool a little. Cover and place in a fridge for at least 1 hour to allow the fool to set.

Reserving 4 blackberries for garnish, put the rest into a pan with the remaining sugar and cook over a low heat for 7 minutes, until the fruit softens. Press the fruit through a sieve to make a puree. Whisk the chilled custard until very smooth, then whisk in the Greek youghurt and fold in the puree. Spoon into desert bowls and chill for 1 hour. Decorate with 2 fresh blackberries and dust with some icing sugar. Enjoy!
