Hot Carob Mint Nip

Courtesy of Fern This was posted in EatingFromGodsGarden last year and it has become our favorite wintertime drink! I think everyone will like this!

Ingredients:

1 cup organic rice milk, or almond milk
1 peppermint herb tea bag **
1 tsp carob powder
1 tsp honey ** or maple syrup

Directions:

In a small saucepan, heat milk, with tea bag over low heat for about 10 minutes. Combine carob powder and honey in a cup and stir well. Remove tea bag from saucepan and discard. Pour herbed milk into cup, stir and serve.

Makes 1 serving

** What we often do, since we don't use teabags, is make peppermint honey. We take 1-2 drops of Peppermint Essential Oil to 1/4 cup honey, stir well. Then add 1 tsp or more peppermint flavored honey to replace the tea bag and honey called for in the recipe. Very yummy!
