Coconut Mousse

At the begining of the month I have posted a dessert containing coconut mousse, however I still owe you the recipe. Yesterday, it was snowing for the first time while I was preparing it again. I have also spent quite a long time with creating chocolate decorations while I was wondering about the Christmas menu. About the menu I still do not have a single idea, but making the chocolate decorations was a lot of fun and I can't wait to get another bunch of foil to experiment some more. But now, let's see the recipe for the mousse.


2 egg yolks
25 g sugar
125 ml coconut milk
2 g gelatine
125 g heavy cream

Beat egg yolks with sugar until pale, while bringing the coconut milk to the boil. As soon as it starts to boil pour it over the beaten egg yolks and put it back to the stove. Cook until thickens, then stir in gelatine and let it cool. As soon as it is cold enough stir in beaten cream and let it stand in the fridge for a few hours.

It seems to taste really nice. And I love cocount in any form. Cocount and mousse... Gosh! I have to try this!

Beautiful! Of course, chocolate and coconut are great together, so I'd love to taste those two together (same with a mango mouse, or maybe a thickened mango puree as syrup - would be great with coconut), but I also love coffee and coconut together and would love to make this and your coffee mousse and put them in dishes in layers.
