Fake-acino – Friday Food

fridayfood2.jpgI promised this one, my fake, Good for You-Naturally!™ cappacino.

Lisa’s Fake-acino

Make a cup of roasted barley/chicory herbal coffee (Cafix) with hot, not-milk (instead of water). Add 1/2 tsp. raw Carob Powder, and 2-3 drops flavored (English Toffee, is a favorite) Stevia Drops (Sweet Leaf brand). Froth in frother.

When you are traveling, you can use Better than Milk (a milk substitute powder – soy or rice) and skip the frothing, to make an easier “on the road” drink. Just make your herbal coffee with water, and add milk powder, carob powder, and stevia drops and stir well. (Plain Teeccino or Celestial Seasonings Roastaroma are other herbal coffees you can use. Teeccino brews like coffee; Roastaroma brews like tea – in a tea bag.)

Tips: Of course, you could use one of the already flavored Teeccinos.

Carob Powder can be substituted in any recipe that calls for cocoa powder. It is a bit different taste than chocolate, but a good, Good for You-Naturally!™ substitute. Also, it is not bitter like chocolate.

Stevia leaf is an herb that is 300 times sweeter than sugar. You can buy it ground and sifted (a green powder – the straight herb) or a white powder (I don’t know what they do to it, obviously this is a processed product) or as a “tincture” in grapeseed oil (what the Sweet Leaf drops are.) When using the powder you use just a very small pinch, the drops, just a couple drops.

[Update: We have mainly used the plain ol’ cut and sifted Stevia herb, and just recently began using the Sweet Leaf drops. I’ve never tried or looked into what other Stevia processors were doing to it. Erica at SuperMom has posted why she only uses Sweet Leaf brand and not others.]
