Snow White

It's snowing, and it has continued to do so the whole day! That much for the "spring is in the air" -feelings of last week! Well, there are two sides in every coin. :) I'm sure every skier in the Helsinki area is hoping for even more snow, where as us summer folks are counting days for... well, hoping, wishing, praying that in a few weeks time all snow would be gone!

In the meantime silky loveliness of some coconut flavoured semolina pudding with the hidden gem of half a nectarine in the bottom will keep the spirits high!

Semolina Pudding

Recipe from Samettisia makuja (Original French title of the book Délices de Lait) by Laurence & Gilles Laurendon

Serves 2

400 ml coconut milk
1 dl water
3/4 dl semolina
2 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons coconut flakes

1. Heat the coconut milk and water in a saucepan.
2. Add the semolina and let boil for about 8 minutes, mixing every now and then.
3. Season with sugar.
4. Enjoy warm or cold.

My own addition:

-Slice half a nectarine and place the slices in the bottom of the bowl/plate you'll use to serve your pudding.
- Fill the bowl/plate with the semolina pudding.
-Decorate with some coconut flakes and brown sugar.

This is Helsinki. Now. :)

I love the picture of footprints in the snow. It somehow reminds me that no matter the weather today, the winter is in fact already behind us. Only its footprints are left...:)

And a big praise on pudding of course! :)

Thanks, Rosa. It is delicious!

Hehe, Cynthia! :)Well, snow can be very beautiful, and every year it is first fun to have snow, but after 2-3 months enough is enough! :)

Thanks, Jesse. Yes, the pudding is perfect winter food.

Thanks for visiting my blog, Gattina!

Thanks, Anya! Only winter's footprints are left, that's a nice idea!

Thanks, Kevin! Coconut really gives that little something extra to the pudding!
