"Caramel" Mousse (GF) - Bean Based

Oh my gosh, this is SOOOOOO good.  I LOVE the molasses flavor !!!

Comments from taste testers:  Smooth texture.  Nice creamy flavor.  Right amount of sweetness.  Mild peanut butter 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".

1 can white beans, drained and rinsed (I use Cannellini)
6 Tbsp almond milk   
1/8 tsp salt
1/4 cup natural peanut butter    
2 tsp ground cinnamon 
2 tsp vanilla extract
6 large dates 
1/4 cup molasses   
1 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
