1.   Put the berries and granulated sugar into the mixing cup. Using the blending shaft, purée, using an up-and-down motion, until almost fully puréed; reserve.

2.   Put the remaining ingredients into a medium to large mixing bowl. Using the whisk attachment, whisk until medium peaks form, about 1 minute. Fold in berry mixture.

3.   Serve immediately for the best texture (fool will only stay in good form for about 1 hour maximum).
