Fruity Polenta Dessert (Vegan, Gluten-free)

This recipe is based on a dessert that my grandma used to dish up after lunch when I was a kid. In Germany it is called ‘Rote Grütze’, but there are a few variations of it – depending on where you come from.

My recipe is based on polenta – an awesome gluten-free alternative to semolina. It is also very simple and quick to do. Vegan, gluten-free and free from added sugar. If you like it sweeter, feel free to add some sweetener of your choice 🙂
