AIP Hot Chocolate.jpg

Could anything be more perfect (and AIP compliant) when it’s cold out? Not that winter has actually arrived in North Texas, but a girl can dream :)

This rich and creamy carob-based version of the tasty classic keeps it elimination phase compliant and still satisfies that sweet tooth in a major way.

•2-3 tbsp Carob Powder, to desired “chocolate-ness”
