Low Carb Strawberry Rhubarb Fool


A “fool” is a super easy dessert of whipped cream mixed with berries or fruit. This low carb strawberry rhubarb fool is so simple and yet so delicious. And a great way to showcase those spring fruits like strawberries and rhubarb. My kids loved this so much, I socked some chopped rhubarb in the freezer for the future!

Low Carb Strawberry Rhubarb Fool


  • 1 cup chopped rhubarb
  • 1/2 cup chopped strawberries
  • 3 tbsp water
  • Sweetener equivalent to 6 tbsp sugar (powdered or liquid works best), divided
  • 1 cup whipping cream
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract


  1. In a saucepan over medium heat, combine the rhubarb, strawberries and water. Bring to a simmer and then reduce the heat and cook 5 minutes, until the rhubarb and strawberries are very soft.
  2. Stir in 1/4 cup of the sweetener until well combined. Let cool to room temperature.
  3. In a large bowl, beat the cream with the remaining sweetener and the vanilla extract until it holds stiff peaks.
  4. Divide the whipped cream among 4 dessert cups and drizzle with the strawberry rhubarb sauce. Gently fold in with a spoon to swirl together.
  5. Serve immediately or refrigerate a few hours before serving.
