Delicious Orange-Pineapple Coconut Milk Mousse

I’ve been on an active search for healthy recipes to satisfy my passion and addiction for sweets. I recently saw a recipe going around on Facebook for making Chocolate Mousse using cold Coconut Milk, instead of butter, eggs or cream. Even better – all you do is combine the ingredients & blend. What a terrific concept! But I’d been making a LOT of chocolate recipes for us lately, and was craving something different.

If you follow us, you know our “M.O.” by now. See what we have in the kitchen to use. I knew I already had organic coconut milk. I saw Bruce had bought a box of clementines, and there was a quarter of a pineapple in the fridge…

“Hmm,” I thought. “Orange and Pineapple go really well together, and balance wonderfully with Coconut Milk! Yes!” * This recipe is just one step, and is vegan, 100% natural, paleo, dairy free, and gluten free. One thing it is not free of – is flavor!
