Gooseberry-fool & Diet

A few days ago I cooked Gooseberry-fool. It is a bit healthier than the cookies, muffins etc. I have shown you before. Maybe something for people, men or women, who want to start a diet, but still want to get a treat??! I suggest then that you use another sweetener (for instance birch sugar – it has a very low GI-index) than proper sugar, in the gooseberry-fool if you want to try to lose weight… 😀



  • 5-7 ½ dl red gooseberries
  • 5-6 dl water
  • 2 dl caster sugar
  • 3 tablespoons potato flour

Boil water and sugar.

Add the gooseberries and cook them gently smooth over low heat.

Mix the potato flour with a bit cold water. Pour it into the pot.

Just wait until the gooseberry-fool starts bubbling again, then take it off from the stove.

Pour it into a bowl and sprinkle sugar on the surface of it.

Serve lukewarm or cold with milk.

Remember that the gooseberries can be a bit sour so add sugar after taste.

Happy Gooseberry Day! 😀
