  • 7gm or 1 small pack of unflavored Gelatin
  • 15ml / 1 Tbsp. Cold water
  • 240ml / 1 cup Coconut water
  • 120 gm/ ¾ cup White Chocolate
  • 15gm / 1 Tbsp. Unsalted Butter
  • Egg Yolk
  • 30 gm x 2 (60 gm) or 4 Tbsp. of Granulated Sugar (divided)
  • 1-2 Tbsp. Amoretti® Purple Sweet Potato Artisan
  • 15ml / 1 Tbsp. Cognac
  • 1/2 tsp of Amoretti® Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • ½ - 1 Tsp. Amoretti® Natural Purple Food Color (Optional)
  • 1 Egg White
  • 120 ml / ½ cup of Heavy Cream


  • Preheat the oven to 450 F.
  • Grease and keep aside a quarter sheet tray lined with parchment paper.
  • In a bowl mix together the almond flour, confectioner’s sugar, and all purpose-flour.
  • In another bowl, beat the egg whites with granulated sugar until stiff peaks. Set aside.
  • Add the 2 whole eggs along with almond flour mix until pale and creamy.
  • Add in melted butter and the extract.
  • Gently fold 1/2 of meringue into the mixture.
  • Then add the remaining meringue and fold again.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes and cool on the counter.


  • Mix the gelatin in the water and then microwave for a few seconds until melted.
  • Pour into room temperature coconut water and mix well until completely incorporated.
  • Take a flat tray, pour in the coconut water, and refrigerate overnight or until it jellifies.
  • Cut into cubes and set aside.


  •  Take a bowl and melt the white chocolate with the butter in the microwave in 30 second blasts, until smooth and silky. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, whisk the egg yolk with 2 tbsp of sugar, until pale and creamy.
  • Add in the Amoretti® Purple Sweet Potato Artisan, the cognac and salt. Mix until combined.
  • Drop in the melted white chocolate and mix well. This is a good time to add in the Amoretti® Natural Purple Food Color. This is optional if you want your mousse to have a pop purple color. Set aside.
  • In another bowl, whisk the egg white with 2 Tbsp of sugar until you get stiff peaks.
  • Fold it in with the chocolate mix and set it aside again.
  • In another bowl whisk the heavy cream until you get stiff peaks. Fold it into the chocolate mix gently without deflating much of the air.
  • Fill the mousse into a piping bag.


  • Cut out circles from the coconut sponge with cookie cutters in the size of your serving glass.
  • Start by piping a layer of the mouse. Then place a sponge disc. Repeat the process until you reach the top of the glass.
  • Finish with the mousse layer and level off with an offset spatula. Chill until serving
  • When serving, scoop and place a mound of the cubed coconut jelly on top. Dig in and enjoy!
