This rich mug of hot chocolate can be enjoyed right before bed because the cocoa powder is swapped out for carob powder. Carob is grown in a pod, and mimics the taste of chocolate but without the caffeine. Carob is also a good source of B vitamins, calcium, potassium and the important sleep-inducing magnesium.
