For 87% of my overall dessert consumption, I want either a rich and decadent chocolately dessert OR ice cream. But once in awhile, especially once the weather starts getting all hot and steamy, I’m in the mood for something lighter. Airy. And packed with fresh seasonal fruit.
The kind of fruit that is so freaking ripe, juice runs down your hand and chin as you try to stuff your face with them. And right now, New York is all about its berries. We wait all year long for berries. We train for this moment.
Blackberry Fool. It’s so simple. It’s so easy. It’s SO delicious.
It’s the type of dessert you eat and don’t want to cry in a corner about after all the calories you just consumed (I’m looking at you cheesecake). It’s refreshing, light, and the perfect way to enjoy berry season. Feel free to substitute in whatever berries look best at the market. They are all equally delicious.
If you’re a real rebel, you can even do a mixed berry one.
I know, scandalous.
And listen, you can totally do this for any summer entertaining you have going on. It’s elegant and casual all at the same time. It looks refined, but really is ridiculously easy. Just a handful of ingredients and about 10 minutes of prep. That’s it.
