Carob banana cocoa is a delicious hot and thick vegan recipe treat that's great with breakfast or anytime on a cold day.

A cup of hot Carob "Cocoa" is quite a nice treat, especially for those who are trying to avoid eating chocolate and dairy. It is thick and "creamy". And since Carob is much sweeter than Cocoa, you may not need to add any sweetener; by itself, it tastes like bittersweet chocolate. In fact, since we started making it, we prefer it to trying to make the traditional cocoa without milk.

Place in a blender: the carob powder, cornstarch, banana and 1cup of water, cover, and run at high speed until the contents are smooth. Wash out the blender with additional water, if necessary, to bring the total volume to 2 cups.

Heat the ingredients, stirring occasionally, and serve.

Vegan FlagThe above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31): 'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food. And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so. God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV) Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!
