Strawberry Fool

Strawberry Fool
Valentines Day is approaching and like every year, this year also I'm sharing a simple, quick and delicious dessert. Last year I posted a healthy mousse with avocado and chocolate which was quite a hit in the blog. Today's I'm sharing with you a lovely English dessert - Strawberry Fool. Traditionally, a fool is made with stewed fruit folded with a sweet custard, but  this is an easier version with whipped cream.
I first saw this dessert in a cooking show, and have been waiting to try this and what better time than this with Valentines Day coming up. This strawberry fool is exactly my kind of dessert - it's very easy and needs very less time. This is a make-ahead dessert, so perfect your friends and family for parties and get-together. The main ingredients of this dessert are cream and strawberries, with a slight hint of rose essence. If you want to make something special for your loved ones, try this out and let me know how you like it.
