This is a Latvian mousse-like dessert made with farina or Cream of Wheat. You can substitute whatever juice you prefer - just be mindful that some juices will need less sugar. Recipe is from Saveur.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 3 cups unsweetened cranberry juice
  • 12 cup sugar
  • 12 cup farina or 12 cup cream of wheat
  • milk, for serving (optional)


  1. Bring juice and sugar to a boil in a 2-qt. saucepan over medium-high heat. Whisk in farina, reduce heat to medium-low, and cook, whisking constantly, until thickened, about 5 minutes. Transfer to the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a whisk, and process on medium-high until thick and doubled in volume, about 12 minutes. Serve in bowls with milk poured over top, if desired.
