Don't be anybody's fool - Make this low carb dessert with Lo-Dough's Vanilla Sponge Mix and you can have your cake and eat it
A quintessentially British summer dessert, a fool is effectively crushed or stewed fruit stirred through whipped cream or even, custard. For us - looking at making this a low-carb dish, suitable for keto, it was always going to be unadulterated cream - and our most popular summer berry, the strawberry.
Other than the cream and the strawberries, you'll need a little sweetener and the secret ingredient, some chopped up left over vanilla sponge cake. It's a great use for any last little bits and bobs and makes this speedy dessert that little bit more substantial, for hungry bellies, without moving the dial for carbs or sugars!
- 1 portion of leftover cake made with the
Lo-DoughVanilla Sponge Mix
- 90g whipped cream
- 50g strawberries
What you'll need
This diet-friendly recipe is possible with:
- Chop or break the cake apart into little pieces.
- Squash the strawberries with a fork and then mix through the cream.
- Add the mix to a glass adding layers of cake pieces as you go.
- Chill for approx two hours and serve cold.
You can lighten this further and lower the calories by cutting 50% of the cream with low fat yoghurt, though the fool wont set quite as firm.
