A nice alternative to the sugar loaded hot chocolate, and oh so good on a cold night.

Fantastic Hot "chocolate" - loved it. Tastes like real hot cocoa but it's healthier with carob. Great for us because chocolate gives us headaches! Thanks for sharing! Read More

This was my first time trying anything Carob. The recipe looked easy enough so I gave it a try. I dumped everything in a sauce pan at the same time and whisked over low flame until hot. It's quick easy and yummy!! Read More

Loved it! To save time and to avoid using milk I boiled water in the kettle poured it over the carob powder added honey vanilla and 2-3 tablespoons of coconut milk and stirred. Thanks for a great recipe! Read More

I have been "dairy free" for about 2 years now. Recently I also developed a severe sensitivity to chocolate. In the last week or so I have been "jonesing" for a cup of hot cocoa. I had forgotten about carob as a substitute so I made this using light organic coconut milk and WOW! This totally satisfies my cocoa cravings! I use organic maple sugar to sweeten my drinks.

This was delicious and satisfied my 4 year old chocolate lover. I used a local raw honey that was very flavorful but I think it will also work with something a little more mild. Read More

We strive to eat organically non-GMO and sugar-free. (We use honey instead of sugar) We sometimes -if not most of the time:-). As I was reading through the recipe ( after 95% not expecting any results to come up 5% expexting at least something because after all this is Allrecipes ) I saw that there was already honey on the list and no sugar in sight! It tastes wonderful with Silk unsweetened original almond milk and is just right when you heat it up in between 4 and medium. Thanks Read More
