Organic Carob Powder Light
Carob is a tropical pod that contains a sweet, edible pulp. After drying, the pulp is roasted and ground into a powder that resembles cocoa powder. Naturally sweet and nutritious, carob powder is gluten-free, lactose-free and caffeine-free. It is also low in fat and calories. It is commonly substituted for chocolate, however while unsweetened carob powder may be sweeter than cocoa powder, it may not be considered as flavourful as chocolate and is actually quite earthy.
A tablespoon of carob powder is a delicious addition to your smoothies for a chocolate hit and also works well as a 1:1 substitute for cacao in your homemade hot or iced chocolates. As it is naturally sweet in flavour you may not need any additional sweetener, however a dash of honey or maple syrup may be added for extra flavour. Carob is well known as a dairy-free alternative to chocolate. Create your own carob chocolate by combining carob powder with an equal amount of coconut oil and a dash of maple syrup. Carob powder, as with cacao powder and cocoa powder, is wonderful for use in all raw food and home-baked goods. When using it as a replacement for cacao or cocoa powder in recipes, always substitute 1:1.
