April berry fool

The joke’s on you if you don’t try this simply smashing chiller thriller

April Fool’s Day always brings forth incredible tricks and pranks – whether it’s kids or grown-ups acting the clown! But we can assure you there is nothing crazy or spoofy about with this special April Fool recipe. Just the taste of chilled, smooth, sweet and simply smashing strawberry…



  • 450g strawberries
  • Juice of ½ lemon
  • 100g icing sugar
  • 300ml double cream
  • 200ml fromage frais


  • Wash and remove the stalks from the strawberries. Place in a large bowl and add the lemon juice (or some strawberry liqueur if you want to pimp it up!) Next, sieve over the icing sugar then mash up the strawberries so that they are juicy but still with some texture.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the cream until it forms firm peaks. Stir in the fromage frais and then fold in the crushed strawberries. Spoon into individual glasses and chill in the fridge for a couple of hours.
