      Utterly delicious! The masa harina makes such a special flavour and texture. For the milk I used almond milk, and I used a piloncillo for sugar which I dissolved in the hot milk. Really easy, and soooo goood :) Thanks for posting!!
      Made for ZWT 8 /Mexico for the Lively Lemon Lovelies

      I live 5 minutes away from Mexico and so I have high expectations for champurrado. I like this, but couldn't give 5 stars. I changed things up a bit here, so it might be my fault that it wasn't superb. First of all, I used4.5 c nonfat milk and 1.5 c. half and half. I upped the masa and water accordingly and I used 2.3 tablets of abuelita chocolate. I upped the brown sugar after tasting, but later regretted it b/c it was too sweet (next time I will put the indicated amount!) I didn't know what translucent masa is supposed to look like so when I thought it was thick enough I added it to the milk. It was super lumpy after lots of stirring so I blended the lumps in the blender and it is nice and smooth now. I really do like it, it's just too sweet

      I have been looking for the right recipe to make this and this one looks the best I would be making it know if I had the masa or corn flour but I don't so I have to wait but about the Mexican chocolate Ibarra why not use abuelita it is exactly the same and I love it they have it in a boox just like Ibarra or you can get it in a bag already course or even in a syrup and it already has the cinnamon and sugar so it may help lessen ingredients but I am just going to follow this and add in my abuelita and I may buy the brown sugar cones and use those since that's what most use!! thanks for posting this I crave it all the time im 3 months pregnant and this is my sweet, hot, filling drink!!
