Mocha Peanut Butter Coconut Banana Mousse (GF)

Adapted from this recipe.

I found a down-side to making all this mousse -  I eat too much !!!  I can't stop eating it once I start !!!! 

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 large really ripe bananas, sliced
1/8 tsp salt
2 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp  Coffee Extract
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/3 cup peanut butter 
1/4 cup instant coffee granules
1 Tbsp Hershey's Unsweetened Cocoa Powder
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1/2 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
4 Tbsp Chia Seeds (I use Bob's Red Mill) 

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
