A fool is a classic English dessert made by folding puréed fruit into whipped cream. In this recipe we add refreshing mint and tangy plain yogurt to balance the rich cream.

  • 2 tablespoons granulated cane sugar, more to taste
  • 2 tablespoons fresh spearmint leaves, more for garnish
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 (6-ounce) container low-fat plain yogurt

Core and trim the strawberries. Slice three berries in half and set them aside for garnish. Purée remaining strawberries with sugar and mint leaves in a food processor. Transfer to a large bowl. In a mixer or with a wire whisk, whip the cream to stiff peaks. Gently fold yogurt into cream.

Taste berries and add more sugar if desired. Fold cream-yogurt mixture gently into berries until completely combined. Spoon mixture into 6 dessert glasses and garnish with strawberry halves and mint leaves.
