Best Carob Powder Drink

I grew up drinking Milo chocolate sweetened with condensed milk as a child and my grandmother's homemade made from cocoa beans cocoa tea. 

At that time I was always congested and had sinusitis, later on in life when I switched to a dairy-free, caffeine-free lifestyle drinking carob drink instead of drinking chocolate, my congestion and sinusitis literally disappeared. 

That's my personal experience so I'm excited to share with you one of my favorite Carob powder recipes that I love especially during the cold winter months or late evening relaxing comfort drink. 

Carob Powder Drink Ingredients

Carob Powder - Made from the pods of the carob tree, the pods are dried, roasted and ground into a powder. The powder doesn't taste exactly like chocolate,

it is milder and sweeter but it is an exceptionally great alternative to chocolate. Carob powder doesn't contain caffeine or theobromine, stimulants found in chocolate.

Carob powder can be used as a one to one substitute for chocolate powder in recipes. You can purchase the carob in health food stores or online.

Almond Milk - For this recipe, I used unsweetened almond milk but you can use the sweetened kind if you do then lower the amount of added sweetener. 

Coconut Milk - I added coconut milk for flavor, it combines well with carob, but you can leave it out if you choose. 

Maple Syrup - I loved the flavor of maple syrup as a sweetener in this recipe, you can substitute with cane sugar or stevia.

Vanilla - I added vanilla to make the flavors pop and it worked quite nicely.

Salt - Just a pinch of Himalayan pink salt an optional ingredient added to make the flavor pop.

How To Make Carob Powder Drink

Mix almond milk, coconut milk, carob powder, and salt in a medium pot over medium-high heat. Stir to remove lumps until carob drink is heated through. 

Stir in maple syrup and vanilla, pour into a cup and garnish with vegan marshmallow or coconut whipped cream. Serve.
