This dessert comes together so quick, that I hard to believe, but it is a fact and the taste tests pass with flying colors. A dessert that you need to start preparing an hour or two before dinner time; that’s all.

There are 3 things you need to do

  1. make a blueberry puree;
  2. push the puree through a sieve and allow it to thicken in the fridge
  3. whip cream.

When you are ready to serve, pour the puree on top of the whipped cream and you fold it once or twice and that’s all. The more you fold the more one color you will have, you’ll end up with a blueberry mousse. Don’t overdo the folding part. You want to reach this nice marbling effect.

Once you made the fruit puree you can place that in the fridge immediately; in other words, you can skip the step with the sieve, but you will end up with little crunchy pieces in the Creamy Blueberry Fool. Well, I ain’t no fool, I want a perfectly decadent dessert and that’s what I have. Follow the recipe below and you’ll have the same result.
