Raspberry Fool with belVita Honey and Nut Crunch

Raspberry Fool with belVita Honey and Nut Crunch
I eat breakfast at my desk a couple of mornings a week when I go swimming before work. It means leaving home at 6am very bleary eyed, so I'm rarely organised enough to bring a bowl, cereal and milk with me. Instead, I keep a handy stash of belVita Breakfast Biscuits, some dried fruit and packets of seeds in my desk drawer to keep me going until lunch. belVita Breakfast Biscuits are made with at least 5 wholegrains and offer a great source of fibre and vitamin B6 as well as magnesium and iron. Being familiar with the brand I was happy to accept their challenge of developing a recipe using the belVita Honey and Nut Breakfast Biscuits.....and this Raspberry Fool with a Honey and Nut Crunch was what I came up with. I have to say it 's just a little bit yummy.

The raspberry fool with a crunchy honey and nut topping (courtesy of crushed belVita biscuits) makes a lovely lazy weekend breakfast, or you could even use it as a fresh and fruity dessert. I love fruity fools made with thick greek yogurt as it gives the dish a nice tang. If you wanted to make it a bit sweeter though mix some fruit syrup in with the raspberries before folding in to the creamy yogurt. Personally I like it on the tangy side.

The fruit can be varied to whatever's in season - strawberries, blueberries and blackberries would work really well and you could even use defrosted frozen fruit in the middle of winter. Sometimes whipping cream is used as the base of a fool but I much prefer the sourness of thick greek yogurt, as well as the obvious health benefits.

One thing's for sure, this fool is definitely to be repeated!
