Hot Spiced Carob

Hot Spiced Carob

Serves 4

This delicious, warming drink is made from carob rather than cocoa and you may use your choice of dairy, almond or soy milk. The fresh ginger gives it just a little kick and the sprinkling of spices over the top will tickle the tongue. Top with whipped cream, if you like.

  • 1 (1-inch) piece ginger, peeled and halved
  • 3 tablespoons carob powder
  • 2 cups milk
  • 4 teaspoons honey
  • 1 pinch ground cinnamon
  • 1 pinch ground cardamom
  • Whipped cream (optional)

Bring 2 cups water and ginger to a low simmer in a small pot. Cover and simmer for 5 minutes over low heat. Remove and discard ginger. Add carob powder and stir until blended completely. Add milk and honey and heat until hot but not boiling. Pour hot spiced carob into mugs and sprinkle with cinnamon and cardamom. Add dollops of whipped cream on top, if you like.
