  • 1 pint strawberries washed, hulled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup sugar divided
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 2 Tablespoons Chambord (Raspberry liqueur) optional


  • In a medium sized bowl, add 1/4 cup of sugar and the Chambord to the strawberries, and let them macerate for about 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • With a slotted spoon, reserve 1/2 of the berries. Puree remaining berries and juice in a food processor or blender, leaving puree a bit chunky.
  • Whip cream to stiff peaks in a mixer, adding the remaining 1/4 cup sugar, a little at a time, about half way through.
  • For the ombre effect, divide the whipped cream into three small bowls and add the strawberry puree to each bowl, varying the amount for three different shades or layers.
  • Add a small amount of the pureed berries to each glass or dish, then add the darkest whipped cream and berry mixture. Carefully add the next two layers with a spoon or spatula.
  • Chill fools for one hour for best flavor.
  • Garnish with fresh berries


To finish a classic Fool, you would then carefully fold in all of the remaining strawberry mixture into the whipped cream,
