Smarter Semolina Pudding
Blueberries and grape juice form the base for this delicious sauce, and not only give the semolina pudding a rich purple hue but the flavonoid anthocyanins, which helps support cardiovascular health.
If you're cooking this pudding not during the summer months, feel free to use frozen blueberries instead of fresh.
