Hot Carob Cocoa
From: Shaula Evans

Here's one awesome recipe, though, from my mother's newly acquired, second-hand copy of Ten Talents.
(How did I manage so long without this cookbook?--I am really impressed with it.)

Carob is a natural sweetener, also a bowel conditioner. High in minerals--low in fat.

  • 1 qt casher, coconut, or soy milk
  • 3-4 tbsp carob powder
  • 5 pitted dates
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla or 1 tbsp malt syrup
  • 2 tbsp soy or safflower oil
Liquify all ingredients except oil until smooth.
Heat, but do not bring to a boil.
Add oil slowly and blend again.
