This is a simpler, tastier - and MUCH healthier - version of the hot cocoa mixes that call for non-dairy creamers...and one that can easily be adapted for vegans, as I have done. I found that using a powdered soy milk in place of the milk powder and raw sugar in place of white yields a very tasty dairy-free hot cocoa mix. I also used good cocoa powder purchased at my local Trader Joe's that is far superior in taste than Nestle's or any other overly-processed commercial brand. I have not tried the healthier and caffeine-free option of carob powder in place of cocoa, but I'm sure it can substitute cocoa in much the same ratio. With whatever type of chocolate powder used, one needs to adjust the amount used to taste - I found most of these recipes for powdered hot cocoa mix are far too heavy on sugar and not chocolatey enough for my palate!
