Hot "Cocoa" on Xmas Day

It is so much easier to change our diets than to tell our little one 'no' for everything we love to eat and drink - but he can't. What to do without hot cocoa on a winter's day? Here's our son's favourite allergy-free substitute treat: hot carob 'tea'! Mix together 2 tbsp sifted carob and 2 tbsp sucanat or other sweetener. Add 2 cups of hot milk, a little at a time, and whisk.

According to Heinerman's Encyclopedia of Fruits, Vegetables and Herbs, carob reverses kidney failure (2 tsp of carob powder in cranberry juice or milk, taken 4 - 5 times daily) and is one of the best remedies for infant and adult diarrhea (it has anti-viral and anti-bacteria properties)!
