Sweet, tangy and irresistibly delicious. This sugar free and vegan raspberry coconut fool will tantalise your tastebuds.
Simple pleasures are the best. They are like an unexpected gift, don't have to cost a penny and take you by surprise. As the writer Paul Coelho puts it, “It’s the simple things in life that are the most extraordinary.”
It does feel very satisfying indeed to bake a sponge, let it cool, cut in in half, mix a filling, mix a topping, assemble the thing, crown it with whichever decoration you have dreamed up and bathe in the ah's and ooh's when you serve it. That is a big, fat, special pleasure. But. Not simple!
This raspberry coconut fool is so easy to assemble that a child could do it.
It is a dessert delicious enough to serve at a dinner party as you can easily prepare it in advance and store in the fridge. (If you want, you can create beautiful swirly patterns by sticking a knife into the raspberry layer and combine it with the coconut. = extra wow factor)
But as so often, the essential element of a simple pleasure is spontaneity and surprise. So, to help you enjoy a raspberry coconut fool when inspiration strikes, you should always keep a can of full fat coconut milk in the fridge. It will help it to harden sufficiently to have a wonderful creamy texture which is needed for this dessert.
Trust me. There is one in my fridge right now. Just in case.
The raspberry coconut fool is
- quick to assemble
- tangy but sweet
- sugar free
- low carb
- highly nutritious and rich in fibre, vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6 and minerals including iron, selenium, sodium, calcium, magnesium and phosphorous - yes, coconuts are a true superfood!
- a glorious moment of happiness
If you are a strawberry lover, you could also try my strawberry coconut mousse, which is based on coconut milk as well. For chocolate fans, the chocolate avocado mousse would be a great choice.

Easy, quick, delicious, refreshing! I'll put this recipe on repeat!
This sounds so yummy! When mixing, you use 2 cans coconut milk with half raspberries? Thank you 🙂
Hi there, the recipes uses 14 oz of raspberries 🙂
Can I use thawed frozen raspberries and how long will this keep in fridge?
Hi Yvonne, you can use frozen raspberries. From my experience, they are more soggy than fresh ones, so if you keep the fool in the fridge you might have to give it a stir the next day should liquid collect on the top. It should be fine for 2-3 days in the fridge, though fresh is always best!

Making this as one of the desserts for Saturday night - sounds so delicious and easy to make! Just one question on blending the coconut and 1/2 raspberries, vanilla and sweetner - is this a blend done by hand or do you actually put it in a blender? I don't want to mess up the consistency......is it like a mousse type texture or more creamy when you eat it?
Thank you for all your wonderful ideas!!
I have a food processor, but you can also use a stick blender for this. Creamy or mousse-y - it's kind of both. You do end up blending some air into it, so it does get a bit fluffy. Enjoy! You can't really get this one wrong 🙂
This dessert is absolutely fantastic! I always say that I have to bake less and enjoy making amazing no-bake dessert like this one. You inspired me to try it! I love the unexpected simple pleasures, too! 🙂 Have a great week!
