These fools are very easy to make, with a great refreshing taste. They are also a healthy dessert, with the fruit, the ginger and the yoghurt.

  • Wash the rhubarb stalks, chop into small pieces, and toss into a pot along with the ginger, lemon juice and just enough water to cover the rhubarb. Put on the stove, bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer, cover and cook until the rhubarb is just tender (about 5 minutes.)
  • Extract and discard the cinnamon stick. Sweeten to taste either with sugar, or with syrup from the jar your preserved ginger was in. Set aside to cool.
  • When it's cooled down, make up the fools. Take 4 dessert bowls, and in each make layers of rhubarb and yoghurt, starting with the rhubarb on bottom and finishing with a layer of yoghurt on top. Set in fridge to chill (at least half an hour.)
  • When you're ready to serve them, put a sprinkle of the ground cinnamon on each.
