Strawberry and orange fool

Strawberry and orange fool


  1. Wash and chop the strawberries, keeping some aside for the garnish.  Place the chopped strawberries in a bowl, roughly mash them up and fold in the orange juice and orange essence (if using) and the icing sugar.
  2. In a separate bowl, whip the cream until stiff peaks form and then gently fold in the yoghurt and finally the strawberry mixture.  Pour into 6 glasses and chill for a least 1 hour.
  3. Just before serving, take the reserved strawberries, cut in half and roll the pointed ends in the caster sugar before arranging the two halves on the top of the fool.
