Last week I was a little late for work. I went to the freezer and grabbed a frozen container of breakfast chili for breakfast and headed off to work. Around 10:00 I was ready for breakfast so I grabbed the container of chili, opened it and found barbecue sauce. Crap. So I ate a handful of almonds and counted down until lunchtime.
Now, I am usually really good about labeling things before they go into the freezer. I keep masking tape and a sharpie in the kitchen so I can label as I go, but I must have been in a hurry when I made the chili, so I didn't label it, and Dave must have put the barbecue sauce away, no label and in the wrong place...I'm sure it was him, I wouldn't do that...
So, no breakfast but it wasn't the end of the world. I just ate lunch a little earlier than usual.
Well, I went home and made myself a blueberry fool. Fools are usually whipped cream and fruit mixed together. I added some cream cheese to give it a little more body and that tangy no-bake cheesecake taste. I have frozen blueberries in the freezer and they worked perfectly. I love this little treat.
|I love dessert in a pretty glass.|
So the next time you are feeling like a fool, or when you don't, make this dessert. It is easy, beautiful, and so delicious.
Blueberry Cheesecake Fool
8 oz. cream cheese, softened
3/4 cup blueberries, fresh or thawed frozen
1-2 Tbsp. water
1/3 cup Swerve, more to taste if needed
1 cup heavy whipping cream
1 tsp. vanilla extract
sweetened whipped cream and berries for garnish, optional
In a blender, mix blueberries and water until finely pureed. Add cream cheese and puree until completely mixed.
In a medium bowl whip heavy cream and vanilla to still peaks. Fold the blueberry mixture into the whipped cream until no streak remain. Spoon into dishes and refrigerate for 1 hour or overnight. Mixture firms up as it chills.
