Carob comes from the pods of the carob tree, a member of the legume family that grows along the Mediterranean Sea. The pod contains a sweet, edible pulp. Once dried and roasted, the pulp is ground into a dark brown, slightly sweet, richly flavored powder called carob powder. It is a healthy alternative to cocoa that is low in calories, contains no fat and is caffeine free.
Carob is an excellent substitute for chocolate or cocoa powder in cakes, cookies, smoothies, beverages and confections. To substitute carob powder for cocoa, replace one part cocoa with 1½ to 2 parts carob by weight. To substitute for chocolate, use 3 Tbsp carob powder and 1 Tbsp water in place of each square of chocolate.

- Nice Alternative to Hot Cocoa
- If you're into drinking homemade hot cocoa for the health benefits (high in antioxidants, reduces blood pressure) this makes a nice change-of-pace from natural or Dutch process cocoa powders. Has a roasted flavor somewhat similar to coffee. Certainly worth a try!
- The taste is excellent. I ...
- The taste is excellent. I do not have to add sugar. I mix it with an ounce or so of water before adding to organic unsweetened rice milk, almond milk or hemp milk. My only wish is for friendlier packaging. the crinkly, thin plastic bag is hard to deal with. The product must be emptied into a glass jar for storage in the refrigerator.
