Blueberry-Yogurt Fool

Yogurt adds a healthy component to this fool, an old-fashioned dessert. If you don't have thick Greek-style yogurt, put 2 cups of regular whole milk yogurt in a cheesecloth-lined colander over a bowl and let drain for 2 hours in the refridgerator. The volume should reduce to 1 cup. Per serving: 306 calories; 4 g protein; 15 g fat; 44 g carbs; 3 g fiber.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 pints blueberries
  • 1/3 cup honey, plus more if desired
  • Juice of half a lime
  • 5 fresh mint leaves plus 4 sprigs for garnish
  • 1/2 cup cold heavy cream
  • 1 cup thick Greek-style yogurt
  • 4 teaspoons finely chopped pistachios

Directions

  1. In a blender, combine 1 pint of blueberries, honey, lime juice, and 5 mint leaves; puree. Press mixture through a fine mesh sieve to remove skin and seeds. Discard skin and seeds. Taste and add more honey if desired. Transfer to a container, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until cold, about 10 minutes.

  2. With an electric mixer or a whisk, whip the cream until it holds stiff peaks. Fold the cream into the yogurt.

  3. Using a light hand, fold the blueberry puree into the yogurt mixture about three quarters of the way, leaving a swirly pattern of dark purple streaks through the white yogurt mixture.

  4. Spoon into 4 glasses and chill. To serve, sprinkle with pistachios, and garnish with remaining blueberries and mint sprigs.
