Chocolate Mint Mousse (DF, GF)

This has a smooth texture and a nice minty flavor (not too strong!!!)

This is a GREAT way to eat more chia seeds, which are high in fiber, Omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, manganese, phosphorus, and protein.

I actually make the mousse and then leave it in the freezer for about a week before I take it out to eat it.  I think it has a better flavor - this gives it time for all the flavors to "blend together".

4 medium really ripe bananas, sliced
2 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk
1/4 cup  Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/3 cup natural peanut butter
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp peppermint extract
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbsp dried mint flakes
2 Tbsp Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
6 dates, chopped
2 Tbsp Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill) 

Place all ingredients (EXCEPT chia seeds) in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

Then add the chia seeds and pulse just until the chia seeds are slightly ground into smaller pieces.

Place into a glass jar with tight fitting lid.

Then refrigerate for a few hours or overnight.

My favorite food processor is the  KitchenAid  7-Cup Food Processor
For blenders, I use both the  Vitamix Blender and Ninja Master Prep Professional Blender
