Chocolate Pudding (DF, GF) - Sweet Potato Based

This was SOOOOO  good. It is GREAT to satisfy a sweet tooth !!!   Eat it as a snack or for dessert.  The sweet potato REALLY makes this nice and creamy and smooth !!! 

This is a GREAT way to eat more chia seeds, which are high in fiber, Omega-3 fatty acids, calcium, manganese, phosphorus, and protein.  And get even more fiber from the sweet potato !!!

Comments from taste testers: Smooth and creamy.  Did not have a banana flavor.  

This recipe is adapted from  this recipe .

1 and 1/4 cups unsweetened almond milk
2 tsp ground cinnamon
2 very ripe bananas, sliced
1 cup cooked sweet potato 
4 dates
1/4 cup peanut butter 
2 tsp vanilla extract
3 Tbsp Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill)

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.

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
