Kids' "Coffee"

When I was little, I always wanted some coffee because my parents were always drinking it... but it tasted gross (I like it now though, haha). I think this would be great to serve your kids with dessert while the grown-ups enjoy their coffee. This is a great and very healthful drink for kids or grown-ups to enjoy. It sounds a little odd, but it actually tastes very good and can act as a good alternative to coffee for adults (who don't want the caffeine) or kids (who don't like coffee!) Molasses is a good source of Vitamin B6 and Selenium, and a very good source of Calcium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium, Copper and Manganese. I make mine with blackstrap, but you can use the lighter variety if you (or your kids) prefer. I got this idea/recipe from a peculiar cookbook from the 70s for sugar-free (and artifical sweetener-free) diets called "The Ecological Eclair."
