I have a hot “cocoa” drink for you that tastes great without being overloaded with sugar and other not-so-good-for-you ingredients.
This hot “chocolate drink is 100% vegan (if you use agave or maple syrup) that uses carob powder instead of chocolate.
I used Carob instead of chocolate chips in this recipe. Carob has been used for thousands of years as a sweetener, substitute for chocolate, and even folk remedies because of its nutritional benefits.
Carob is packed with fibre and contains a wide variety of vitamins (Bs, E, and K) and minerals, including zinc, potassium, and magnesium.
You will enjoy the comforting, warming, and deliciousness of this recipe.
(Makes 1 serving)
Place all the ingredients in a small pan over medium heat. Whisk together well to get rid of any lumps and heat until it reaches your desired temperature.
Pour into a mug and enjoy!
