Fresh Strawberry Fool

12:05 am on 26 January 2010


  • 2 punnets ripe strawberries
  • 300mls cream
  • 2-3 tablespoons sugar
  • 2 tablespoons orange liqueur (Cointreau or Pomaranska, an orange infused vodka)


Put six strawberries aside. Chop the tops off the remaining strawberries, and put them in a food processor. Pulse gently until they are almost pureed but still a little chunky. Gently whip the cream until it forms peaks. Fold in the sugar and then mix the strawberry puree in with a metal spoon, adding the liqueur.

Pile the mixture into 6 cocktail glasses and top each with a sliced strawberry.

Cover each glass with glad wrap and refrigerate for 2 - 6 hours.
