Paleo Chocolate, Coconut, Banana Mousse

This is a dessert that you can whip up in minutes. It is the consistency of a thick pudding when you first make it, but as it sets in the fridge it turns into a decadent, creamy mousse! It tastes just like your eating a restaurant mousse made with lots of heavy cream and sugar but this recipe has none of that!!!

I found this recipe on: http://www.fastpaleo.com

Ingredients:
1 medium banana
2 tablespoons almond butter
2 tablespoon cacao powder
1/4 cup melted coconut oil
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

Directions:
In a bowl mash the banana with a fork.
Mix in the almond butter.
Whisk in he coconut oil and vanilla until smooth.
Add cacao powder and whisk until combined.
Place in refrigerator to thicken up for at least 1/2 an hour.
Place 1/4 cup of pudding into ramekins and top with fresh fruit and cinnamon.
(Tasted best with the strawberries).
