Subject: Hot Chocolate
2 tablespoons unsweetened carob powder
1/4 teaspoon cornstarch or arrowroot
6-8 ounces water or fortified vanilla, soy, or rice milk
1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract (omit if using vanilla, soy, or rice milk)
sweetener of your choice (optional)
In a small saucepan whisk together carob powder and cornstarch or arrowroot. Gradually whisk in water or nondairy milk, keeping the mixture as smooth as possible. Heat, stirring often, until steaming hot. Stir in vanilla, if using, and sweetener to taste.
Tip: If you prefer, you can substitute unsweetened cocoa powder for the carob powder, or try a combination of the two as you wean yourself off chocolate.
