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!

Method

  1. Chop or break the cake apart into little pieces.
  2. Squash the strawberries with a fork and then mix through the cream.
  3. Add the mix to a glass adding layers of cake pieces as you go.
  4. 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.
