- 2 1/2 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1/2 cup freshly-brewed coffee*
- 1/4 cup The Australian Carob Co. Roasted or Raw Carob Powder
- 2 tbsps The Australian Carob Co. Carob Syrup
- 1/4 tsp cream of tartar
- 1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/4 cup tapioca powder
- 1/2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1/3 cup mixed berries, diced
In a saucepan, combine the two cups of almond milk, with carob powder, carob syrup, coffee, cinnamon and cream of tartar. Whisk to blend and bring to a gentle simmer over medium heat.
While simmering, in a small bowl, combine the tapioca powder with the remaining 1/2 cup almond milk until smooth. Stir into the hot pudding mix and continue cooking it over low-to-medium heat.
Stir constantly until it reaches a thick consistency, approximately 3-6 minutes.
Remove from heat. It will thicken further as it cools.
Add in the vanilla extract and allow the mixture to cool for a few minutes.
Once it has cooled down a little, fold in the mixed berries and spoon into dessert cups or serving bowls.
Refrigerate for a few hours.
Before serving, garnish with whipped cream (or carob whipped cream), more diced mixed berries and dust with carob powder.
