Peanut Butter Mousse - bean based (GF)

Comment from taste testers:  This is REALLY good.  Loved the texture - thick so you knew you had taken a bite of something.  Coconut and chia seeds - what's not to love !  Yummy peanut butter flavor.  Just the right amount of sweetness.

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 was made with 2 Tbsp almond milk and 2 Tbsp chia seeds - it was thick.

2 to 4 Tbsp almond milk (depending on desired thickness)
1 can kidney beans, drained and rinsed  
2 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 cup peanut butter  
1/4 cup honey or maple syrup or agave nectar
2 tsp ground cinnamon 
1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
1 to 2 Tbsp Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill) (depending on desired thickness)

Place all ingredients (EXCEPT coconut and chia seeds) in a blender or food processor and blend until smooth.

Then add the coconut and 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
