Gooseberry Fool

Yield 4 servings (serving size: about 1 cup)
Tart, grape-sized gooseberries are popular for making jams and jellies because their juice thickens nicely because of its high pectin content. This perennial dessert favorite combines tangy and sweet flavors. It is cool, refreshing, and creamy.

Ingredients

  • 4 cups vanilla low-fat yogurt
  • 3 cups green or pink gooseberries, halved
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1/4 cup whipping cream

How to Make It

  1. Place a colander in a 2-quart glass measure or medium bowl. Line colander with 4 layers of cheesecloth, allowing cheesecloth to extend over outside edges. Spoon yogurt into colander. Cover loosely with plastic wrap; refrigerate 12 hours or overnight. Spoon yogurt cheese into a bowl; discard liquid. Cover and refrigerate.

  2. Combine gooseberries and sugar in a medium nonstick skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 minutes or until mixture begins to thicken, stirring frequently. Gently mash gooseberries with a fork; simmer an additional 2 minutes. Spoon into a small bowl; cover and chill.

  3. Place whipping cream in a large bowl; beat with a mixer at high speed until stiff peaks form. Fold in yogurt and gooseberry mixture. Serve chilled.
