The 'You'll never guess it's not chocolate' Carob Porridge

Have you heard of Charlie & The Carob Tree? 

I hope so! If not, well let me introduce you.

Charlie & The Carob Tree is a family owned business, where Lisa, a wife & cancer survivor, created this perfect Carob blend since she was no longer allowed to eat chocolate. 

I kid you not, it tastes so much like chocolate you won't know the difference! Also with the added maca, cinnamon, maple sugar, wattleseed & murray river salt, their blend really is the person combination of chocolatey, vanilla-ey and spice. 

The hints of vanilla & caramel are heavenly. 

Just in case you are unfamiliar with Carob, Carob is 

full of fiber,

antioxidants,

is low in fat and sugar,

& it is caffeine + gluten free!

It even has twice the amount of calcium compared to cocoa.
