WHAT IS CAROB?
Have you ever tried carob before? Carob comes from the pod of a tree in the Mediterranean. Often used as a substitute for chocolate, it’s a good source of antioxidants and rich in calcium. Since it’s caffeine free, it’s good for anytime of the day!
Carob is delicious and naturally sweet and can be used the same way you use cocoa powder. The brand I like is Chatfield’s Carob Powder. It can be mixed into drinks or baked goods. Carob mixes best when first combined with a hot liquid before adding the rest of the ingredients.
For this recipe, I used my trusty Vitamix 5200 Blender. I love how easily it chops up the ice uniformly to make a nice slush.
