Rich and Creamy Hot Carob

It's that time of year and as part of Whole Foods for the Holidays I'm featuring this recipe again!  After playing in the snow my kids love this!  I have personally found Chocolate to be a bit strong for me.  I feel like it taxes my adrenals and I seem to have a reaction (headache, big pimples, feeling depressed, etc.)every time I eat very much.  Supposed "healthy chocolate" seems overpriced and pretty hyped.  I also feel like it seems to have an addictive quality.  For these reasons I eat very, very little if any chocolate.  It works for me and I have found my family and I enjoy carob and don't miss the chocolate.  For those of you who really enjoy chocolate I have heard part cocoa and part carob is a great compliment.  You won't overdo the chocolate and both contain nutrients that can work together for you.  Whatever you choose I hope you ENJOY my recipe!


Rich and Creamy Hot Carob
2 cups rice or almond milk
2 rounded Tablespoons organic raw carob powder (may use more if you want it more "chocolaty")
3 Tablespoons agave nectar or desired sweetener may add more or less depending on how sweet you want it
1/2 teaspoon vanilla (optional)
pinch of salt (optional)
1/2 Tablespoon coconut oil (optional if you want it more rich)

Mix ingredients into a small pot on the stove! Stir till nice and warm do not boil!

Thank you. I have seen similar versions for a healthy chocolate drink. No more instant hot chocolate for me and my family. This is so good!

Oh my...on Sunday night we made this and added a big scoop of Vanilla Coconut Ice Cream to each cup...it was the perfect treat to watch the Christmas devotional with!

Love you!!

I will also say that hazelnut milk makes an awesome combo with carob and cacao! Yum!

Chocolate gives me headaches too! Thanks for this alternative. It looks so inviting!
