      1. I've stirred it into my kids' oatmeal along with a little bit of honey--and sometimes bananas.

        Have you tried making hot "cocoa" with soy milk? I love it with soy, but I'm not sure I'd like it with cows' milk.

          perhaps i will attempt to use it at tiny amounts... i was just hoping for a way i can get rid of heaps of it at once!

          i don't drink cow milk either... do you add 1-2 tbsp? last time it left alot of sludge at the bottom and the difficulty in dissolving it just turned me off...

          i know these are basic things, but once i get a bad experience, it's a path i don't feel like revisiting........ especially with carob's poor rep!

            Have you tried throwing some in a smoothie, for example with bananas, nut butter, and almond mylk?

              When I make hot soy/carob "cocoa," I heat the milk first, then add the carob and use my small whisk to blend it in the mug. I usually have some residue at the bottom, but no sludge.

              I use about two tablespoons of powder to 10-12 oz milk.
