Total time
The semolina base in this recipe is very adaptable—use any fruit you like or none at all. For an authentic flavor, try it with shredded carrots, nuts, raisins and spices (cinnamon and cardamom).
Serves: 5 to 6 generous servings
  1. In a large saucepan over medium-low heat, stir the semolina flour into the coconut oil, and gently cook for 10-15 minutes, stirring constantly (as in do not stop stirring). The semolina should turn a rich golden caramel color.
  2. Reduce the heat slightly. Immediately add the coconut milk beverage and ¼ cup of water to start. Be careful, it will sputter! Quickly stir the liquid around and then add the honey or maple, vanilla, peaches and dash of salt. Continue to cook for about 3 to 4 minutes, still stirring constantly. The mixture will become very thick. If the mixture seems way too gummy, add a little more water.
  3. Serve immediately. It's best eaten warm, especially if you want it to have a pudding-like smoothness. It does solidify quite a bit when cold, which is still quite tasty. It's surprisingly good leftover for breakfast too!
