In the northern hemisphere, we are in autumn already and in the UK they changed the time as well, so with all this, I started my winter depression. That is how I call it, I have a lot let energy than in spring and summer. Maybe it is having less daylight, the cold and being away from my family, which by the way they are in spring (while I am writing this I realize maybe this is all just jealousy because they have nice weather and I am freezing over here).
So to get over this “depression state” I decided to do a tart that made me feel like in a Caribbean island. I personally prefer cooking with more seasonal ingredients, but sadly it is never coconut or passion fruit season in the UK, so I decided to skip the rules a little bit and I bought fruit purees.
I baked a chocolate sweet pastry, very basic and then I did an anglaise cream for the passion fruit, with juice and on top I placed the coconut mousse glazed, the coconut mousse I did it with Malibu ®, and to finish it off I decorated with some coconut shavings.
It is a nice flavor combination and the mousse is one of my favorites, really smooth and aired, which makes it the perfect dessert for summer days, but in my case, it is also perfect for sad cold days in the UK.
