African Fruit Fool

A “fool” is a delicious mixture of fruit and custard or whipped cream. This recipe from Boma at the Animal Kingdom Lodge is bursting with tropical fruit flavors, light and refreshing. And there’s no cooking involved, so your kitchen will stay cool. Sounds pretty smart to us!

Serves 6

1 cup diced fresh pineapple
1 green apple, peeled and diced
1 small, ripe mango, peeled and diced (about 1 cup)
1 cup diced fresh papaya
2 cups red seedless grapes
3 bananas, peeled and sliced
1 cup shredded coconut
3/4 cup sweetened condensed milk
1 cup heavy cream, well chilled
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1. Combine pineapple, apple, mango, papaya, grapes, bananas, and coconut in a large bowl. Gently stir to combine. Stir in sweetened condensed milk.
2. Whip cream until soft peaks form. Add vanilla and continue to beat just until stiff peaks form. Working in batches, gently fold whipped cream into fruit mixture.
3. Cover bowl with plastic wrap. Refrigerate until cold, approximately 30 minutes.
