Carob comes from a pod that is dried and ground to powder. It is often used as an alternative to cacao as it looks very similar to it, though it does not have exactly the same taste. Carob is high in calcium, a good source of selenium and a natural antioxidant. Enjoy this naturally sweet treat.
½ dl carob powder
1 Tbsp Caro or other coffee substitute
¾ tsp cinnamon, optional
½ – ¾ dl raw sugar or honey
pinch of salt
1 dl cornstarch
2 dl coconut milk
8 dl soymilk
Blend all the ingredients together until smooth. Cook over medium heat until it boils, stirring constantly so as not to stick on the bottom and burn. Allow to boil for three minutes. Pour into a serving dish and chill.
