Frozen Summer Treat

Ok, it’s hot. We knew it was coming and here it is. So let’s just embrace the summer weather and try to find things to beat the heat. As things get hotter meals get lighter and anything frozen will definitely get it done.The traditional “foole”, as it was known centuries ago in England, is pureed/stewed fruit folded into a simple custard. A “fool”, as it is spelled now, is now usually built in the trifle or parfait style as before but whipped cream replaces the custard.For my version I take the modern route and layer it with crumbled cake, chill and serve. But then it hit me; why not make a frozen ice cream type sandwich using the some components. Angel food, or pound cake, sliced and topped with the fool mixture of pureed fresh summer fruit and whipped cream. Top with another slice of cake to make a sandwich, wrap and freeze. This treat is super simple, easy and most of all a refreshing way to use summer fruits in a creative and unique way.
