I was looking forward to making Vispipuuro for Finland’s Independence Day (6 December). The recipes I read promised a light mousse-like dessert with only two ingredients – fruit juice and semolina. With just two ingredients you can’t go wrong …. right?
My pudding had a sticky glue-like consistency. Assuming that I had the wrong proportion of semolina, I made it a second time, a smaller batch, using half the semolina, but the result was still the same. I know it’s poor form to blame the tools but my toddler son did drop my electronic kitchen scales on the floor just the day before. It’s time for a new set.
My dessert may not have been very enjoyable to eat but it still looked pretty. So while there’s not much point sharing the recipe I used I can share the photos with you.
I will definitely persevere and try it again. Vispipuuro is a healthy, low-fat fruity dessert so it will be ideal for the new year when I will be making amends for my many excesses over Christmas! What’s your favourite healthy dessert?
