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.


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


  • 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


  • 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.

  2. Hubby and me ended up the same way whilst blackberry picking but it is so worth it!

    This fool looks lush!


  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.
