Champurrado

Champurrado is a traditional warm, thick Mexican drink served during the holidays, similar to a spiced hot chocolate. Made from corn masa (cornmeal) and flavored with clove, cinnamon, and cacao, this chocolatey drink is like a warm hug in a mug!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Corn Flour, Masa
  • 2 cup Cashews, raw – soaked in hot water for 30 minutes, then drained
  • 6 cup Water
  • 1/2 cup Coconut Sugar
  • 1/4 cup Maple Syrup
  • 1/2 cup Cacao Nibs
  • 1 tbsp Vanilla Extract
  • 1/8 tsp Clove, ground
  • 1/8 tsp Ground Cinnamon – or one cinnamon stick

Directions

1

Toast masa in a saucepan on low heat.

2

In a blender, add drained cashews and water and blend on medium for 30 seconds, then high for 30 seconds.

3

Add the rest of the ingredients to the blender (omit the cinnamon if using a cinnamon stick) and blend on medium for 30 seconds and then on high for 30 seconds.

4

Pour mixture into a medium pot, add the cinnamon stick if using, and bring to a simmer, stirring frequently to make sure masa does not clump.

5

Add more sweetener if desired.
