April fool!

There’s nothing fake about this clowning celebration of the craziest month of the year

It’s the start of a month when you’re never quite sure what is fact and what is fake. 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 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.
