Semolina Mousse

Time for another cheap dessert recipe! I grew up eating this and it’s delicious. I don’t make it that often cause one of my sons doesn’t eat it (he doesn’t like anything that has a mushy consistency) and I prefer making foods that all of us will eat. Just as with the Sweet Curd Balls, there are plenty of recipes out there and I didn’t come up with it. I just want to give you some cheap food ideas that you usually wouldn’t think to make :)

By the way I have never said where I am from, I am not hiding it, but I think it’ll be fun to see how long until someone guesses :) Anyway, here is what you’ll need:

1l of juice (any berry juice is the best choice, but you could also use somekind of fruit syrup and dilute it)

1,5 dl of semolina

sugar if needed (depends on your juice choice and preference)

milk for serving

  1. Pour your juice into a pot and bring to boil. Once it’s boiling lower the heat and add the semolina. Mix well with a whisk to avoid clumps and cook on a low heat for 10-15 minutes, until it thickens (stir often). For this recipe it’s better on the liquid side and not too porridge kind of thick. See if you need to add sugar, I added a little bit.

2. When it’s ready pour it into a big bowl and let it cool down. My mom used to cover it and put it outside.

3. Once it’s cooled down take your electric mixer and mix it until it’s nice and fluffy, more voluminous and the color gets lighter. I would say not less than 5 minutes.

4. All is left to do is to serve it with a little bit of cold milk. Mmmmmmhhhh so yummy. It’s especially great for hot summer days when you want something lightweight and refreshing.

I hope you’ll give this a try and if you do, let me know how it went! Talk to you soon people.
