Peanut Butter Coconut Banana Date Mousse (DF, GF)

Comments from taste testers:  LOVE IT !!!!  Love the texture:  the smoothness from the "mousse" and the crunch from the coconut and chia seeds.  No one flavor is overpowering.  Nice blend of ingredients.  This one is a keeper !!!!  LOVE the coconut in it.   

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.

1/4 cup water 
4 very ripe bananas, sliced
1/2 cup natural peanut butter
6 dates, chopped
1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
4 Tbsp Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill)

Blend the water, bananas, peanut butter and dates in a blender or food processor until smooth.

Add the coconut and 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
