Happy Birthday to my mommy!  Today is my mother's birthday and in her honor I am making her a  peanut butter and chocolate mousse pie with a date nut crust.  I am queen of "Fast and tasty" so fasten your seat belts.  When I make this pie it is gone within minutes.

1 Cup Dates, pitted
1/3 cup Walnuts
1/3 cup cashews
1/3 cup almonds
1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 Pkg. Silken Lite Tofu
2 Tbsp. Cocoa Powder
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/3 cup maple syrup or agave

Bottom Layer:
1/4 - 1/3 cup Peanut Butter 
1/4 cup Chocolate Chips, chopped
Blend crust ingredients in food processor. Press crust into pie pan. Blend filling ingredients in blender.  Slather a layer of peanut butter along bottom of crust.  Drop a few chocolate chips on top of peanut butter if desired.  Pour the mousse filling on top of the peanut butter. Top with chopped Chocolate chips or mini choclate chips. Freeze then serve. 

Happy Birthday to a woman who has given me life and direction.  She has taught me how to smile, has reminded me more than once "the best is yet to come", and I am pretty sure I inherited her love of chocolate.  I love you mom!
