Vispipuuro (Finnish whipped porridge) or klappgröt (Swedish name) is a sweet, wheat semolina (manna) dessert porridge made with berries, usually lingonberries. It's eaten in both Sweden and Finland. The semolina is cooked with the berries and also some kind of sweetener. After the mixture has cooled down, the porridge is vigorously whipped to a light, mousse-like consistency. The dessert is usually served with milk and sugar. Other berries and fruit that can be used are cranberries, apricots, gooseberries and strawberries.
