What is a berry fool?
A berry fool is a traditional English dessert. No one is really sure where the name Fool came from but some believe it might have been derived from the Arabic dish known as ful or foul (pronounced fool). While the ingredients differ from the Arabic and English dishes, both are prepped in the same way. Typically a berry fool is made by folding stewed fruit into a sweet custard. Classically the fruit of choice is gooseberries (close to the flavor of a grape but slightly more boozy tasting). Nowadays, modern fool recipes skip the custard and use whipped cream.
What Berries are Keto Friendly?
Most berries are okay on the keto diet. You can enjoy raspberries, blackberries, blueberries and strawberries on the keto diet. You will just want to make sure that you consume them in a small amount. One cup of raspberries has 6.7g net carbs, making them great options for a low carb berry in this easy keto whipped cream dessert.
Can I use Frozen Berries to Make a Keto Berry Fool?
Since you are making a syrup out of the berries, you can definitely use frozen berries in this recipe. That way you can always have the ingredients on hand to make this delicious, simple keto dessert.
Can I Make Keto Berry Dessert Ahead of Time?
Yes, you can make this keto berry fool ahead of time. However, the berry fool might not look as pretty. I recommend making the components of this keto dessert separately and store in the fridge. Then, when the time comes, assemble them before serving.
Sugar-Free Berry Fool Variations
There are many other berry options for this easy sugar easy dessert. If raspberries are not your thing, try using strawberries, blueberries, or even blackberries. Raspberries and blackberries contain as much fiber as digestible carbs. The carbs in blueberries can add up quickly. Otherwise, all four are great options for this easy keto dessert.
You can also substitute the monkfruit sweetener for a sugar-free vanilla syrup by ChocZero. Their syrups are sugar free and sugar alcohol free. Use 1/4 cup of vanilla syrup in the berries and 1/4 cup of vanilla syrup in the whipped cream.
You can also top your berry fool with melted sugar-free white chocolate. It makes for a stunning presentation and tastes amazing!
