  • Preparation time: 
  • Serves: Up to 8 people


  • 300ml double cream
  • 300g greek yogurt
  • 300g frozen blackberries
  • 150g honey
  • ½ lemon, juiced
  • 100g fresh blackberries
  • Mint leaves, to decorate


  1. Place the frozen blackberries in a saucepan with the honey and place over a low heat. Allow the blackberries to soften and turn into a jam-like consistency in the honey, mashing them up with a wooden spoon. Remove from the heat and add the lemon juice. Strain the blackberry mixture through a sieve into a clean bowl, pushing as much of the pulp through as possible, but keeping back the seeds. Discard the seeds, and set the bowl aside to cool.
  2. Into the bowl of your kitchen machine, fitted with the balloon whisk, add the double cream, and switch on the machine. Increase the speed to 3, and whisk the cream for 3 minutes, or until thickened. Be careful, as you don’t want to over whip the cream, just until it leaves a thick trail when you raise the head.
  3. Add the yogurt and combine with the machine on minimum speed.
  4. Fold in the cooled berry mixture; don’t worry if there are a few streaks.  This can be done using the fold function on the machine or the folding tool, if available.
  5. Divide the fool mixture between 8 individual glasses, top with fresh blackberries and small mint leaves, and chill for 2 hours before serving.
