400 g       strawberries

600 ml       water

½ cup /7 tbsp     sugar

½ cup /7 tbsp     semolina /farina /manna


Cold milk to serve

Fresh berries to decorate (optional)


  • Bring water to the boil in a pot.

  • Blend strawberries and add them to boiling water.

  • Whisking constantly gradually sprinkle in semolina and sugar.

  • Reduce the heat to medium/low and continue to cook while whisking about 3-5 minutes until the mixture is thickened.

  • Let it cool down a bit off the heat.

  • When it is moderately warm, whip it with mixer until it whips up into airy cotton-candy-pink cloud and doubled in volume.

  • Spoon the mousse immediately when it is still airy and creamy with milk and decorate with berries of your choice.


Tip: You can use also cranberry juice, purred apples, even jams or any fresh/defrosted berries or rhubarb. Cook berries in the 1l water for about 8-10 minutes until they are soft. Put the hot juice and berries through the sieve to press out of skins.
