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!

    1. I know what you mean, I tend to make sure everyone else is sorted and forget to feed myself.

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.
