Coconut Pineapple Mousse ( Mousses Recipe)

Voila, the well-known pinacolada combo has transformed into a mousse! this delicious mousse, with its winning looks, is a popular one in eastern countries and is sure to be liked by all who taste it. For best results, use readymade coconut milk. I would also suggest that you use canned pineapples to capitalise on their sweetness and softness—and to avoid the sour and raw feel of fresh pineapples.
