Faux Hot choc-car-ob

As I continue on my AIP journey, I stopped living in denial that I can happily eat dark chocolate and not feel the effects after. I am trying to stop the one step forward two steps back mentality so I can go full force forward towards healing. 

I do miss a hot cup of dark hot chocolate as a treat and it has been a long time since I've had one. Recently I learned that carob, besides being AIP compliant, has other healing properties that can support my gut healing routine. 

Here is my recipe of what I call faux hot choc-car-ob, I chuckled when I came up with the name because it sounds like a bad Chinese accent at play, something out of Seinfeld. 

Faux Hot choc-car-ob

It looks like dark chocolate

  • 2 tsp carob powder
  • 3 tbsp coconut cream ( I use the Savoy brand ) with 1 1/2 c. water or 1 1/2 c. Coconut milk ( just coconut milk and water, no other thickener please ) 
  • 1 tsp honey or Maple syrup (optional)
  • 1/4 tsp gluten free vanilla
  • Sprinkle cinnamon (optional) 

  1. Mix all the above ingredients with a hand blender to get rid of the lumps 
  2. Warmed it up on the stove in a pan. 
  3. Pour in mug and serve. 

but it tastes different in a good way
An empty cup is a sign of yumminess
