Weight Watchers Easy Recipe: Skinny Lemon Triple Berry Fool
A traditional fruit fool is one of the simplest desserts ever. All you need to do is gently swirl together pureed lightly sweetened fruit and whipped cream.
And since either fresh or frozen fruit will work, you can make them any time you want a quick and easy no-cook dessert.
This skinny lemon triple berry fool is based on a recipe I saw in one of my favorite cookbooks of the year – 5 Easy Steps to Healthy Cooking: 500 Recipes for Lifelong Wellness by Camilla Saulsbury.
It swaps out the whipped cream for thick and luscious, non-fat plain Greek yogurt.
Skinny on Lemon Triple Berry Fool
I used a combination of raspberries, blackberries and blueberries I had in the freezer with nice results.
But feel free to experiment with other berries and/or or juicy fruits. And use whatever citrus juice/zest you think would work best.
You can also turn this into the British dessert, Eton Mess, by adding some crushed meringues.
We found this skinny lemon triple berry fool light and refreshing, but next time I’m going to skip the optional mint.
You may also need a little extra agave/sweetener if you’re not in love with the tanginess of plain Greek yogurt.
Be sure to taste and adjust the sweetener to suit your tastes before serving.
According to my calculations each Skinny Lemon Triple Berry Fool has about 154 calories, *4 Weight Watchers PointsPlus, *4 WW Freestyle SmartPoints.

This brief video shows another way to make Fresh Berry Fool (using raspberries, strawberries and blackberries):
Skinny Lemon Triple Berry Fool Recipe
- 1-1/2 cups fresh or frozen berries (I used a combination of raspberries, blackberries and blueberries)
- 1 teaspoon chopped fresh mint (optional) (next time I'll skip it)
- 4 tablespoons liquid honey, divided
- 2 cups non-fat plain Greek yogurt
- 1 tablespoon finely grated lemon zest
- 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
- In a medium bowl, mash the berries wit the mint and 1 tablespoon of the honey.
- In a second bowl, whisk together the yogurt, remaining 3 tablespoons honey, lemon zest, and lemon juice, until smooth and well blended.
- Reserve 1/2 cup of the berries for topping.
- Gently fold the remaining berries into the yogurt mixture, creating a marbled effect.
- Taste and adjust sweetener to suit your tastes before serving, adding a little more if necessary.
- Divide the mixture evenly among four small glasses or glass dessert dishes. Top with the reserved mashed berries.
- Serve immediately.
