Mocha Coconut Mousse (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: This is a keeper.  Not a SUPER STRONG coffee flavor.  This is SOOOO good !!!

This recipe is adapted from  this recipe .

1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk
3 Tbsp instant coffee granules
2 tsp ground cinnamon
3 very ripe bananas, sliced
1 cup cooked sweet potato 
1/3 cup powdered sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/8 tsp salt
1/3 cup Unsweetened Shredded Coconut  (I use Bob's Red Mill)
2 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

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him.  Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.
