Blueberry Treat pt. 2 Blueberry Fool

Blueberry Treat pt. 2 Blueberry Fool

Blueberry Fool is an English dessert that involves folding fruit, fruit compote, or jam into a simple custard. Newer adaptations allow for simply using whipped cream instead of fussing with a custard.


Blueberry Fool

1 cup heavy whipping cream

1 tsp vanilla bean paste

Pinch salt

½ cup blueberry compote (recipe here)


  1. Whip heavy cream with the vanilla and salt.

  2. Plop into a bowl and serve with blueberry compote.  As much as you like. Swirl around for pretty colors.


This is a nice mid-afternoon snack or a light dessert.  It would also be great with fresh berries as opposed to the blueberry compote.

This is an over-simplified version of my previous post on blueberry treats, but I really do love it.

If you’re experimenting with low-carb or keto diets like I am it’s a great treat when you’re craving ice cream, jam, or if you want to whip up something quick for an unexpected guest (low-carb or not).

In both recipes, the addition of salt is very important.  Without it, the flavor falls flat and it’s tempting to add a teaspoon or so of sweetener which it really doesn’t need.
