Strawberry Apricot Semolina Pudding

Strawberry Apricot Semolina Pudding

I never count calories, so be warned: when I make something light and low-calorie, it is by pure accident. Because if I want something, I will have it. Be it healthy or guilty. But I think this pudding with fresh fruit counts as a low-calorie dessert… doesn’t it? It includes no cream, eggs or soft cheese, just milk. The percentage of milk fat can be adjusted to individual taste. I believe it’s also a fun and healthy way for kids to have their semolina. Food tastes so much better when it’s bright-coloured!

The pudding is very similar to Cranberry Semolina Mousse, but its obvious benefit is that it’s made with fresh berries and fruit – no heat treatment this time. The bright fragrance of apricot blends nicely with the classic flavour of strawberries, and semolina adds a pleasant grainy texture. All you really have to do is cook semolina and wash your blender after you puree the ingredients. Couldn’t be any easier!

Strawberry Apricot Pudding


330ml milk
1/3cup+1tsp sugar
4tbsp semolina
20 strawberries
4 apricots

Serves 4


In a small saucepan, combine milk and 3 teaspoons sugar. Bring to a boil and fold in semolina, stirring continuously. Continue stirring over a low heat until thick and creamy. Cover with a lid and set aside.

Halve the strawberries, cut the apricots into chunks, add remaining sugar, and puree them in a blender.

Process the semolina in a blender until smooth and sticky. Combine the semolina and pureed fruit, stir well. Beat the mix with a hand mixer to make it more airy.

Refrigerate in individual bowls for at least 3 hours or overnight.

    I have never had similar idea! Very interesting, I make only semolina ‘vulgaris’ (just milk&sugar).
