It's been very hot these last couple of days. In attempts to bring on the winter days, I'm making easy-peasy delicious Champurrado. A mexican based corn masa drink, made with mexican chocolate discs. Served hot on cold nights, usually accompanied by pan dulce or sweet bread.
1 lb corn masa
1 Chocolate Abuelita Disc
1 c of sugar or 1 piloncillo
1/2c of sugar (needed)
(compacted sugar molasses )
1 TBSP of vanilla
1 tsp of ground cinnamon or 2 sticks of cinnamon
5 c of water + 2 cups of boiling water
2 1/2 c of milk
Vitamix blender & large pot
1. Set 5 cups of water to boil. Add piloncillo.
2. In blender mix boiling water masa, and all other ingredients, except disc. Blend well, add to pot.
3. Keep mixing masa and add chocolate disc. When thicken, add milk.
4. For smooth drink, make sure mixture is blend well in blender and you're mixing in por often. Turn off, once drink is hot, enjoy!
