About Charlie And The Carob Tree
Charlie and the Carob Tree - funny sounding name isn't it? My name is Lisa and together with my husband Simon, and my two children, Madeleine and Charlie, my household contains allergies to over 50 different foods. Cooking for four, while ensuring that the food is always nutritious has been an ongoing challenge for over 25 years.
In 2007 I was diagnosed with breast cancer and since having chemo I developed food intolerances and sensitivities to a number of food chemicals, with one of the foods now on my "not to eat list" being chocolate! I am a lover of hot chocolates, and never being a coffee or tea drinker, without being able to have hot chocolates I felt like I was missing out on socialising with my friends or having a late night drink after dinner. Missing my hot chocolate, my husband and I started experimenting with carob, adding different ingredients until we reached the perfect blend.
The health benefits of carob speak for themselves and now I want to share my secret blend so that everyone else can enjoy (food allergies or not).
Having "Charlie" as an alternative to cocoa in hot or cold chocolates is not the only way to use it! Sprinkled on ice cream, mixed with frothed milk using the coffee machine and substituting it for cocoa in baking ensures that even the yummiest of foods can now be healthy too.
We are proud to partner with The Australian Carob Company to ensure “Charlie” has a local organic flavour from an orchard in South Australia, home to 6000 selected sweet varieties of carob trees. Quality is their number one priority and they do everything from the harvesting, to the milling and packing on their property, ensuring a non contaminated product which is Nut Free, Gluten Free and the absolute best quality carob possible.
Selected cafes and restaurants in Melbourne are now stocking "Charlie" and we are excited for you to try our blend.
You'll never guess it's not real chocolate.

As we become more aware of the harmful chemicals and toxins within the food we ingest and the air we breathe, it’s no coincidence that we’ve become pickier about what we put on our skin too. After all, it was only 100 years ago that arsenic was still considered in vogue for cosmetics, and many […]

Let’s face it: as much as we want to go for all things organic to minimise our exposure to pesticides, it seems to be unrealistic because organic produces are expensive.

A few years ago, I visited my friend’s house and came across something interesting: instead of throwing food scraps in the bin, she collected those for composting right in her garden. Let’s be honest! I wasn’t a big fan of the whole idea of composting, it reminded me of the stinky smell our food scraps […]
