Or you can call it fruit soup.
One of my favorite childhood desserts is fruit porridge, fruit soup. It is a nice treat, wonderful dessert and you can dress it up or dress it down for family dinners or hosting a party. It is great for the Holidays because in the cold of weather it is so much nicer to have a warm treat. We traditionally put cold milk in the warm “fruit soup” but you can omit it or use oat or coconut milk or a nut milk.
So often I hear how people try to force themselves to be off sugar and sweets but we human like sweetness. It is the quality of the sweetness and the sugar that will make it satisfying and not cause you to go into a “sugar-attack” of not being able to stop. And it is your mindset as well. If you deny yourself a treat it is very possible that is all you can thing of after or in a stressful moment.
So choose sweetness from non-processed real food sources and enjoy.

Strawberries or any other fruit or berries – 2 cups fresh per person
Clean and cut the fruit. You can also use frozen fruit you just have to account for the extra liquid already in there when it melts.
Mash them a bit, add a small amount of water to the pot and simmer for 30 minutes, stirring from time to time. Because there is a lot of water in the fruit, do not add a lot of water.
Sweeten with maple syrup to taste, and serve hot.
Optional: Add a small amount of cold nut milk.
