Today, it’s gonna be fast. I don’t want to tear you from your holiday weekend flow. Perhaps, only a little bit :-) So close your eyes and dream of a place of your choice with the finest white sandy beach, palm trees, turquoise waters and a huge portion of sun. All are in a happy sunshine mood and nothing can dampen your mood. And, do you hear the sound of the sea?
Yes, you’re right. If not, I might be able to help you with this coconut pineapple dessert . Creamy, sweet coconut mousse meets juicy pineapple cream. All is topped by a slice of grilled pineapple in coconut milk. About Pinterest, I stumbled by chance on the recipe for grilled pineapple from Nicole on her Blog dula notes and had to try this directly. Doesn’t it look so tasty? You want to bite in directly, don’t you? And what should I tell you. It is superb ;-)
