Keep your dessert light a fluffy, with this to-die-for no bake Blackberry Mint Fool that’s ready in about 5 minutes!
For some reason around this time of year, I always want to make dessert. But in AZ it’s already getting too hot to run the stove in the afternoon. I have to bake first thing to get anything baked up And that doesn’t always happen with running errands and taking big man to school. Luckily, there’s this wonderful thing called a no-bake dessert. I’m talking Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Parfaits, Lemon Raspberry Mousse Pie in a Jar, and Raspberry Fool. Jamie’s fool was my inspiration for this dessert!
I stared at that picture and dreamed of taking a bite. I mean she only lives 1 1/2 hours away – or something like that. Then I was looking through my fridge and saw the extra blackberry mint puree I had from making bellinis for the wedding. That was it. I knew what must be done, and here we are. Light and fluffy dessert heaven that I’m extra happy dipping Nilla wafers into. because I’m weird like that. Long live no-bake desserts!
Blackberry Mint Fool
- 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1/4 cup powdered sugar
- 6 ounces fresh blackberries plus extra for garnishing
- 12 fresh mint leaves plus extra for garnish
- 1½ tablespoons sugar
In a large mixing bowl, beat together heavy cream, powdered sugar, and vanilla, on high speed, until medium peaks form, about 3 minutes.
To a food processor, add blackberries, mint, and sugar. Puree until smooth. (You'll have extra puree, use it to make bellinis!)
Pour 1/2 cup of the puree over the whipped cream. Fold in the puree, but not completely. You want to see the whipped cream and have "ribbons" of puree running through it.
Portion the fool into dessert cups, then garnish with a blackberry and a mint sprig. Serve immediately.
