Blueberry Mousse Recipe

2 ripe bananas
1 heaping T melted coconut oil
2 T hemp hearts (seeds)
Blend all ingredients in a blender on high for 3 minutes. The mixture should be warm. Freeze in a sealable container for 4 hours; serve immediately. Store in Fridge. To reducing the setting time, scoop out warm mixture into 2 oz. shot glasses, place on a freezer safe tray and freeze for about 2-3 hours depending on the preferred solidity. Serve with a dollop of no dairy coconut whip cream and a few blueberries and small sprig of mint herb in each miniature glass. A delicious treat!

If you can’t wait for the mousse to set, refrigerate for 1 hour and serve as a fluffy chilled blueberry pudding!
