Kolskål (literally meaning “cold bowl”) is a traditional Danish dessert made out of milk, sugar, and lemon and topped with “kammerjunker”, a sweet, crumbly cookie. My grandmother has always served it as a dessert so I have a bit of sentimental attachment to it.
Most “kammerjunker” are actually vegan and fairly easy to find in Danish supermarkets like Netto and Føtex, but if that fails just find some vegan vanilla cookies or granola to crumble on top. You can find my amazing granola recipe here
I would love to hear non-Danish opinions on one of our national desserts. Let me know if you like it or not!
I’ve recently come up with a new chia pudding recipe that I think beats my previous low-fat oat milk recipe. This version uses coconut milk which makes all the difference!
It’s really easy to make. Start with a can of organic full fat coconut in a bowl and mix in 3 tablespoons of chia seeds and 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract or powder (if you like some spice to it – add a tsp. cinnamon). After thoroughly mixing it, place it in an airtight container in the fridge for at least 12 hours. Try to stir it a few times within this time period for best results.
I enjoy mine with oatmeal and as a base for smoothie bowls but you can easily enjoy it as is! You can also easily serve it as a healthier dessert. Try it with raspberry compote or fresh strawberries. This has become one of my fridge essentials and will likely become one of yours after trying it!
