Banana Spice Mousse - Take 2 (DF, GF)

Adapted from this recipe. 

Comments from taste testers !!!  This is DELICIOUS !!!!   

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
1 cup pumpkin puree
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
1 tsp ground cinnamon 
1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp ground cloves
8 large dates, chopped
2 to 3 Tbsp Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill) (depending on desired thickness)

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.

Pour 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
