3 C Unsweetened Almond Milk(you can use rice milk or soy or real milk if you aren't a vegan)
3 T Carob (powder...found in health food stores)
1 T Coconut Oil
1 t vanilla extract
1-3 T maple Syrup(depends on how sweet you like it)
Heat milk in a pan on your stovetop on medium
Sift Carob into Bowl(if you don't have a sifter just take out any clumps with a spoon till smooth)
Add coconut oil to carob
Mix a little hot milk to the carob(so it's easier to pour)
Add Carob to pan & stir
Mix in vanilla & syrup.
You can also add ice to this for a cool treat
This recipe makes 2 mugs full of cocoa. It is a great treat all around--especially if you are trying to cut down on sugar.
You can replace Carob with Cacao (raw chocolate powder found in health food stores)
