April Fool! {Lemon Fool}




What better way to welcome April and Spring than with my lovely, refreshing April Fool! No surprises in store here, just a light and creamy delicious treat!

250ml whipping or double cream
1 tsp caster (berry) sugar
125ml Greek yogurt
Zest of ½ lemon plus squeeze of juice
125ml lemon curd
Lemon zest & ginger biscuits to serve

Lightly whip the cream with the sugar until you have lovely soft peaks – be careful not to over whip – then fold in the Greek yogurt, lemon zest and a squeeze of lemon juice. Taste to check it is sweet and lemony enough and adjust to your tastes if needed. Gently fold in the lemon curd to create a ripple effect. Spoon into glasses or individual serving dishes and chill.

When ready to serve top with some long strands of lemon zest and serve with ginger biscuits on the side for a delicious, fast and easy dessert.
