Serves 4
Prep time 5m
Cooking time 10 mins, and an hour to chill

Top tip: Make sure your pears are ripe!

Make sure the pears you use are ripe as they add a lot of the sweetness to the dish. This also means less honey can be added.


  • 250g ripe pears
  • 225g brambles, washed
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 – 2 tsp runny honey
  • 300ml low fat Greek yoghurt (approx 3% fat)



1. Peel, quarter and core the pears and cut into slices. Put into a saucepan with the brambles and 1 tablespoon of sugar and 1 teaspoon of honey. Cover with a lid and gently bring to the boil. Turn the heat down and simmer for a few minutes until the pears are soft. Lift off the lid and if there is a lot of juice raise the heat to boil most of it away as otherwise the fool will be too runny.

2. Push the fruit through a sieve into a bowl and throw away the pips. Allow it to cool down completely.

3. Add the yoghurt to the fruit puree, taste and add another teaspoon of honey if necessary. Pour into serving glasses and chill for an hour before serving.
