Rhubarb Fool

This fool is great for breakfast, snack and most definitely a light delicious dessert.

This rhubarb fool is a real delight and can move with the seasons for it soon became the cherry, damson and gooseberry fool- it works incredibly well with seasonal fruit… so be sure to try it with local seasonal fruit hence the name of fruity fool, plain natural yoghurt and a few nutritional extras.

So with out further ado… we now introduce to you the rhubarb version of the fruity fool.

The Creation

  1. Add the chopped rhubarb and one tablespoon of xylitol to a saucepan cook over a medium heat.
  2. When it starts to bubble turn the rhubarb down, add another tablespoon of xylitol and simmer for 5minutes.
  3. Check for taste, should be sweet with a little kick of sharpness, if too sharp add another tablespoon of xylitol and simmer for another couple of minutes.
  4. Once the rhubarb has stewed it should look at little jam, in a smooth consistency.
  5. Take the rhubarb off the heat.
  6. In a bowl add the ground almonds, mixed seeds, coconut (optional) and cinnamon, give it a good mix. Optional to add 1 teaspoon of xylitol to this.
  7. In a bowl layer this dessert: first layer (1 tablespoon) yoghurt/ coconut cream, second rhubarb, third almond & seed topping- you can repeat this again, quite effective when serving in a glass. Enjoy.
