Summer Strawberry Lime Fool

Servings: 4
12 oz. fresh strawberries, hulled and sliced in half
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tbsp. lime juice
4 oz. white chocolate
1 tsp. lime zest
1/3 cup yogurt
3/4 cup whipping cream

Extra strawberries and white chocolate, for garnish

Heat strawberries, sugar and lime juice in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Simmer until berries are soft, about 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and bring to room temperature. Purée mixture in a food processor or blender until smooth; pass through a sieve into a mixing bowl. Place chocolate in a microwave-safe measuring cup and heat in microwave on high for 60 to 90 seconds, until melted. Stir chocolate and allow to cool slightly. Fold lime zest into yogurt and stir yogurt mixture into strawberry purée along with white chocolate. Lightly whip cream and fold into berry mixture until thickened. Fill four 6-oz stemmed glasses about three-quarters full with berry mixture and chill in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours. To serve, top each portion with sliced strawberries and finely grated white chocolate.

Makes 4 servings.
