Peanut Butter Banana Chia Mousse (DF, GF)

This has crunch from the chunky peanut butter and the chia seeds.  The peanut butter flavor stood out the most to some taste testers.

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.

1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk or water
4 very ripe bananas, sliced
1 cup peanut butter (I used chunky)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp salt
6 dates, chopped
3 Tbsp Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill)

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

Add the chia seeds and pulse until combined or 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
