When I want a coffee drink or coffee ice cream I make one of these.
Don't let the ingredients stop you. I never would have tried this if
someone hadn't *given* me the Postum. I love coffee, good fresh
ground, drip coffee and I don't, as a rule, drink Postum. Still, I
buy Postum just to use in this recipe. I guess any of the instant
coffee substitutes could be used. Once I forgot the carob powder and
it just wasn't the same.
Cold Carob/Postum cooler
1 Tablespoon carob powder
1 1/2 teaspoons Postum
2 Tablespoons boiling water
1/2 to 1 teaspoon dark molasses
4 oz. cold vanilla soymilk
Ice cubes as needed to fill mug.
Put the boiling water in the bottom of a large coffee mug. Stir in the
carob powder and the Postum. Add the molasses and stir until dissolved.
Add the soymilk and ice cubes to fill the mug. Add water if needed.
Makes one serving.
Optional--I often throw the ice cubes and soy milk in the Vita Mixer to
crush the ice and then I mix it all together in a mug. Either way
I love it.
