Peanut Butter Banana Date Mousse (DF, GF)

This is SOOOOO delicious...I could NOT stop eating it.  If you do not have a high powered blender, you will need to add more water or make it in a food processor.  It is pretty thick!    

This is my NEW "make all the time" snack !!!  This was a BIG hit with my co-workers...they thought it was DELICIOUS !  One co-worker said this was her favorite so far !!!

The dates give this mousse a sweeter flavor.

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".
This recipe is adapted from this recipe.

This picture is with 3 Tbsp of water and a little under 1/2 cup peanut butter. 

2 to 4 Tbsp water (depending on desired thickness)
4 medium very ripe bananas, sliced
1/3 to 1/2 cup natural peanut butter   (depending on desired thickness)
6 dates, chopped
4 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
