Guilt-Free Strawberry Fool

April 19, 2011

Lately I’ve been on a bit of a strawberry kick. Maybe that’s an understatement since I eat a clam shell container of strawberries a day. Thankfully, strawberries are in abundance and finally at a reasonable price. Something I can’t say eight of the other months out of the year.

But as much as I love strawberries, even they need a little bit of love every now and again. Enter the strawberry fool, which is bascially a fancy way of saying berries and whipped cream, with a few other extras added in. And while I would much prefer a full-blown fool made with real, rich whipped cream and thick lemon curd or sticky strawberry jam, the weeknights call for something a bit less decadent.

This week has suddenly turned extremely crazy, full of big changes, decisions and responsibilities. I’m running just to keep up and promise to share with you all the juicy details as soon as I can! Until then, I strongly recommend hitting up the produce isle for some strawberries.

Guilt-Free Strawberry Fool

*1 tablespoon sugar-free strawberry preserves
*2 to 3 tablespoons lemon yogurt
*1/3 cup light whipped topping
*4 strawberries, sliced

*Stir together the strawberry preserves and yogurt until well combined. Combine the strawberries, whipped topping and yogurt mixture in a bowl and gently stir to combine.
*Spoon into glass and enjoy!

    One of my favorite summer snacks is attacking a bowl of strawberries and a container of cool whip. Your creation sounds like that but much more gourmet!
