Carob Smoothie

I'm not sure why I've had so many questions recently about carob ! So I decided to post this really delicious recipe.

Warning - carob is not for everybody. I have a friend who swears that it tastes like dirt ! We happen to love it. But then, we grew up on carob, lentils, homemade muesli, vegetarian lasagne and so many other things that left us labelled as "very alternative". We weren't vegan or paleo. We didn't subscribe to any one particular label. My mother was, and still is, simply very creative. I clearly recall a sweet treat that would now be labelled "frozen, raw, vegan, blueberry cheesecake" - that was considered really odd indeed. How times have changed !

So try this out....

Put the following ingredients into a blender:

1/2 cup soy milk, 2 tbsp carob powder (we like the brand in the photo), 2 tbsp natural yogurt, 1 tbsp honey, handful of frozen raspberries, pinch of cinammon

Whiz together and enjoy !!
