Llaeth Y Llan Gooseberry Fool

Indulge in a classic British dessert that perfectly captures the essence of summer – the luscious Gooseberry Fool! Made with plump, freshly harvested gooseberries, velvety Llaeth y Llan Natural or Gooseberry yogurt, and a touch of golden caster sugar, this exquisite treat is a celebration of seasonal flavours.


  • 900g gooseberries, topped and tailed with scissors.
  • 275 g Llaeth y Llan Natural yogurt or Llaeth y Llan Gooseberry yogurt
  • 150g golden caster sugar


  1. Place the gooseberries in the baking dish, sprinkle on the sugar and bake them on the centre shelf of the oven, uncovered, for 20-30 minutes, or until tender when tested with a skewer.
  2. After that tip them into a sieve set over a bowl to drain off the excess juice. Now reserve about a quarter of the cooked gooseberries for later, then place the rest in the bowl of a food processor, add 4 tablespoons of the reserved juice and whiz to a thick purée.
  3. Next, leave the purée to get quite cold, then empty the yogurt into a bowl, give it a stir, then fold in half the purée. Now spoon this mixture into the serving glasses, spoon the rest of the purée on top and, finally, add the reserved gooseberries.
  4. Cover the glasses with clingfilm and chill till you’re ready to serve.
