Gooseberry Chia Fool

I’ve just harvested the last of my gooseberries and this time of year they are definitely at their best, soft and sweet – I’ve been eating them directly from the bush.  This recipe requires no cooking, just blended fresh gooseberries with some maple syrup to add a little more sweetness.  It doesn’t quite replace the delight that is the rich gooseberry fool, but even I would struggle with lots of cream at breakfast time.

Gooseberry Chia Fool (serves one)

Goosberry fool

  • 100g fresh gooseberries
  • 100g natural yoghurt (or coconut yoghurt)
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons desiccated coconut
  • 2 tablespoons chia seeds
  • Some coconut flakes to top

Blitz the gooseberries, yoghurt and maple syrup in a blender (save a few gooseberries for the topping to make it look pretty).   Put the mixture into a bowl and stir through the coconut and chia seeds.  Leave for an hour or more (I left mine overnight) – to let the chia seeds do their work to thicken the mixture.  Sprinkle the coconut flakes and some gooseberries on top and enjoy.
