Carob Cocoa




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)
