"This recipe was found years ago at africadotupenndotedu/Cookbook/Dessert. The intro said: "The term FOOL (also Egyptian for lentils) comes from the English & means essentially a fruit puree folded into a soft custard or whipped cream. You may begin w/any good custard recipe, vanilla pudding or whipped cream." Over time the definition has been modified & I modified it even further in response to reviewer comments. There are apparently 3 African FOOLS: Strawberry (Ghana), Peach (Liberia) & Peanut (Nigeria). Enjoy!"

Tis

We really enjoyed this dessert. I was not sure how much to fold in the strawberries, so I just did it very lightly, but I think I should have folded the mix through a little more.... ahh well next time! Served with extra cream and a strawberry on top this made for one creamy & delicious dessert.
