Chocolate Peanut Butter Coconut Banana Mousse (DF, GF)

Chocolate and coconut is a GREAT combination - just like in a mounds or almond joy bar!!!  I LOVED this mousse.  It is thick with the peanut butter and chia seeds.

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".

2 Tbsp unsweetened almond milk (if needed - I did not use it)
4 medium really ripe bananas, sliced
1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla or coconut extract
1/4 cup peanut butter  (no sugar)
2 Tbsp Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1 tsp Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill)

Put everything in a blender or food processor and blend until well combined.  

Pour into a glass jar with tight fitting lid.  Place in freezer to firm.  Then store in fridge.

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
