A “fool” is an old-fashioned dessert traditionally prepared with pureed fruit and whipped cream. This version is lightened and updated by using non-fat yogurt instead of cream. The fresh tang of yogurt complements and balances the sweetness of the fruit puree.
- 1 pound rhubarb, leaves removed
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 6-8 fresh mint leaves
- Thinly pared rind and juice of 1 orange
- 1/2 pound fresh or frozen strawberries, sliced
- 4 tablespoons non-fat yogurt or frozen yogurt
Cut the rhubarb into 1-inch pieces and place in a heavy saucepan with the sugar, a few mint sprigs, orange rind and juice. Cover and cook gently for about 5 minutes, until the rhubarb is tender but not mushy. Remove from the heat and add the strawberries. Serve warm or cold with a tablespoon of non-fat vanilla yogurt on top of each serving.
