    I love making this refreshing fool in the summer when fresh gooseberries are at their peak! Serve with extra cream or yoghurt and shortbread.

    This is a wonderful take on a traditional fool, and guests will simply love it. You could use tinned mango if it is out of season, though do be sure to take advantage when mangoes are at their best!

    Try this delicious mango fool for a scrumptious summer dessert. I used frozen mangoes, but you can use fresh ones if available.

    A quick pudding to rustle up at a moment's notice, this can be made with almost any fruit in season. The usual whipped double cream in fruit fool is replaced here with a mixture of low-fat yogurt and whipping cream, yet despite the fat content being reduced, this is still a wonderfully rich and creamy dessert.

    Rhubarb is cooked until tender, then chilled and layered with sweetened whipped cream to make a summertime favourite!

    A delicious, healthy dessert that is similar to a traditional fool. This is made with quark, creme fraiche, cream, strawberries and blueberries - it looks lovely and colourful. Other kinds of berries can be used, of course.

    I strongly recommend using fresh brambles in this recipe for best flavour. Raspberries, strawberries or a combination of all three may be used, but they should all be fresh.

    This dessert is lower in fat and calories than the classic fruit fool. It's made by layering ripe mangoes with Greek yoghurt, pomegranate seeds and honey. Simple and delicious!
