Whipped lingonberry semolina porridge ๐ŸŒฑ

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month and the pink ribbon is its symbol. Pink is also the color of this month’s Intl’ Food Challenge. My contribution to this challenge is a traditional Finnish dessert.

Simmer or steam 150 ml spelt semolina in 600 ml diluted lingonberry juice (you can use store-bought juice or prepare it yourself by boiling 300 ml lingonberries in 750 ml water and then straining it through a sieve) sweetened with sugar to your liking and tasted with vanilla extract. Allow to cool and then whip until the color turns pink and the consistency airy.

Serve with foamed almond milk as well as raspberries, pink plums and pomegranate seeds. Decorate with pink chrysanthemum blossom.

    This is one of my favorite Finnish desserts, but … it should be a lingonberry kissel, not juice!
