Recipe: Elderberry Fool with Sweet's

Apothecary Mary's Elderberry Fool with Sweet's Syrup

Have you ever heard of a fool?  It's a lovely concoction of whipped cream, fruit, and extra goodies.  This Elderberry Fool with Sweet's Syrup is a fun take on an old classic, the perfect addition for holiday brunch or dessert.  

How is a fool different from a parfait?  

Parfaits were traditionally frozen custard with cake, although we are all probably more familiar with the Americanized breakfast version that is yogurt and granola.  A fool is whipped cream and fruit... no cake here.  Although there's no judgment either if you want to add cake.  Let them eat cake, right?

Can you make a dairy-free fool?  

Yes, you can make a dairy-free fool!  Coconut cream (yeah, the thick, almost solid cream from the can) works perfectly as a substitute for whipped cream.  

This fool would be lovely with any fruit.  Persimmons and chopped pears would be a nice addition!  You can also sprinkle on crumbled cake or cookies (like gingersnaps).

So here you go, baby.  I'm a fool for you, Elderberry Fool with Sweet's Syrup!
