Raspberry Fool

I bought two cartoons of raspberries today.  So now I had to figure out what I was going to do with them?  It's hot out so I knew it had to be something cool and light.  I turned to some of my favorite dessert ingredients and sure enough this dessert came together.  I call it a Raspberry Fool because a Fool is a British dessert that is made out of cream and pureed fruit.  Well, I changed mine up so it's going to taste like a Cheesecake married a Fool.

To make my Fool you will need:
1 pint of raspberries (divide into two)
1 tub Cool Whip Topping
1 14oz can of condense milk
2 (8oz) bricks of cream cheese
1 lemon (zest and juice)

Beat the cream cheese, condense milk, lemon juice and zest until cream.  Add half of your raspberries and blend with the mixer until raspberries get a bit pureed into the mixture.  Then fold in the cool whip topping.  Chill for 4 hours before serving.

Garnish with more fresh raspberries and serve.  Enjoy.

Note:  You can also put this filling into a graham cracker pie crust and serve it as a no bake pie.


  1. This looks delish! Super simple and perfect for hot weather!

  2. I love the addition of the cream cheese and even though most recipes call for real whipped cream, I think that Cool Whip holds up better with these kinds of desserts so good choice! It looks fantastic.

  3. Great recipe. Love the simplicity. :)
