SUPERFOOD SPOTLIGHT: CAROB
The carob is a dark brown shrub that belongs to the pea family and is native to Mediterranean countries. The pods of carob can be roasted and ground into a powder to be used in baking for a more subtle chocolate flavour.
Undoubtedly, carob wins the prize for pleasing your taste buds without the side effects of chocolate. Rich and creamy, and slightly sweet, this is the perfect powder to be used in all desserts and smoothies, and the best part is that it is really healthy for you too.
