Perfect whipped porridge is fluffy and airy, like pink whipped cream. I show step by step how it is made, using strawberry whipped porridge as an example.

Tip: You don't necessarily have to make whipped porridge with berries! If you don't like them or you just can't find suitable berries, you can also use some ready-made fruit puree, such as mango puree. Or you can use, for example, apple, rhubarb or plums. Only your imagination is the limit.

Strawberry whipped porridge

1. Juice and sugar

Whisk porridge should be boiled in juice, because it brings flavor and color to the porridge. Choose a juice compatible with the berries or fruits you are using. The color is indicative. Cranberry, cranberry or currant juice goes well with lingonberries. Strawberry, raspberry or mixed juice goes well with strawberries. Blackcurrant juice also works, if you can't find anything else. A pale/yellow juice concentrate goes well with fruit.

The stronger the juice concentrate, the less it is needed. You may have to modify the amount of concentrate and sugar mentioned in the recipe, depending on the juice you use. If you use unsweetened juice concentrate, increase the amount of sugar. If you use a very sweet and strong juice concentrate (FUN Light), reduce the amount of sugar.

I personally used mixed blackcurrant juice, which contains several different types of fruit and is diluted 1+7.

How else do you know that the juice is sufficiently strong and sweet? Because it is suitable for serving in a glass at children's birthday parties - just like a regular strong mixed juice.

2. Boiling the porridge

Vispipuuro is cooked from semolina flakes (i.e. semolina flakes), and you need just the right amount of them for the porridge. Too little amount makes the porridge too loose to whip, but too much makes the porridge stiff, the crumbs remain raw, and the porridge does not become fluffy.

Mannaryns cook quickly (in about 10 minutes), so if you notice that the porridge is getting too loose, you can still carefully increase the number of mannaryns in the middle of everything. Or alternatively, you may have to increase the amount of liquid.

After cooking the porridge in the juice, it should look something like this:

3. Berries or fruits

Berries are often boiled together with mandarins to add color and flavor to the porridge. That way, however, you will destroy almost all the vitamins in the berries. If you cook the porridge in juice, I recommend adding the berries only after cooking.

Thaw and puree Frozen berries before use. If you use foreign berries, they should be boiled for at least 2 minutes before use.

If you use fresh apple, rhubarb or plums, you should first boil them until soft or throw them into the porridge to cook.

4. Whipping

Now let's get to the most fun part! Whisking is fun, because the porridge changes its shape right before your eyes. It's good to set aside 5-10 minutes for whipping, and you need a hand mixer for that.

Many instructions advise to cool the porridge before whisking, but I even consider it a bit harmful - the porridge hardens when it cools, so whisking can be difficult. I personally start whisking immediately after cooking the porridge. This is what the porridge looks like before whisking, after adding the berries:

5. Serving

Vispipuuro is traditionally served with milk. For those who use plant milk, I recommend cashew milk, which is our family's favorite. It tastes like low-lactose (HYLA) cow's milk, so it is a neutral-tasting addition to whisk porridge.

6. Storage

Whipped porridge may peel when it cools down, i.e. a dry film may form on its surface. For some reason, this didn't happen with strawberries at all, cheers! But to avoid that, you can always sprinkle a little sugar on top. Store the porridge in the refrigerator under the lid.

When the porridge is well whipped, it retains its fluffiness for many days. This photo wasn't taken until the next day, but the whipped porridge has retained its airiness as it cools and is actually full of small air bubbles:
