Blackberry, Apple and Greek Yogurt Fool

Those of you who follow me on twitter will no doubt have been hearing about my blackberry picking adventures over the last few weeks. Well, several nettle stings (both me and Lowen), a few prickles and a rather scary incident with a cow later, we have survived *unscathed* (not the right word) for another year.

After exhausting the crumble and jam routes to their limits, I decided to try something a little different, incorporating some of the Total Greek Yogurt I was sent recently. The stewed fruit in this recipe will keep in the fridge for a week, so as long as you have some yogurt and honey to hand (and maybe a few toasted flaked almonds if you fancied), a tasty fruity fool is only a matter of minutes away.

BLACKBERRY, APPLE AND GREEK YOGHURT FOOL

| Serves: 4  | Prep Time: 10 Minutes | Cook Time: 15 Minutes | Total Time: 25 Minutes |

Ingredients:

  • For the stewed fruit:
  • 500g Bramley Apples, peeled, cored, sliced
  • 200g Blackberries
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 1 TBSP Water
  • 8 Heaped TBSP Total Greek Yogurt
  • Honey for drizzling

Instructions:

  • Step 1: To make the stewed fruit place the apples, sugar and water in a pan and cook on a medium heat for 6-7 minutes. Add in the blackberries and continue to cook for 5 minutes. Cool a little, taste and add more sugar if needed. Keep in fridge for up to a week.
  • Step 2: To assemble the fool mix together the yoghurt and fruit, spoon into bowls and drizzle with honey.

  1. Braving the bramble patches is well worth it for rewards like this in the end.

  3. I go bramble picking every year, I like to keep some in the freezer so I can whip up a pie or crumble at a moments notice.

    I like the idea of using them to make a fool, it looks beautiful.

  4. I have a bowl of blackberries in the fridge (but more stings than blackberries I'm afraid!!) and will keep some back from the tart to try this - it looks wonderful.

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.


TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
