Raspberry Yogurt Fool Recipe

Raspberry Yogurt Fool Recipe

This classic parfait-like English dessert is usually made with whipped cream, but in this version, yogurt gives the traditional treat a healthier twist–and it will totally fool even die-hard yogurt haters!

You can use fresh or frozen raspberries; either way, this is an early-summer delight filled with antioxidants, probiotics, and scrumptious taste.

2 pounds fresh or frozen raspberries
10 ounces Greek-style yogurt
1/3 cup sugar (optional, if you don‘t mind a very tart dessert)

1. Place the berries in a mixing bowl, sprinkle with sugar and allow to macerate for a few minutes. Place about 3/4 of the berries in a food processor or blender and puree. Chill until cold.

2. When ready to serve, combine yogurt with half the puree and spoon this yogurt-berry mixture evenly into glass parfait glasses. Cover with the plain puree, and top with reserved berries.

Serves 6.
