How to cook Champorado or Tsampurado

Champorado Recipe is a sweet chocolate rice porridge, it is one of the most common Filipino snacks in the Philippines.  The Champorado becomes very thick and the lighter milk helps to loosen the thickness.  It’s almost like eating “chocolate oatmeal”.

Filipino’s usually served this during breakfast or mid-afternoon for merienda.

Champorado Recipe

Champorado is traditionally made by boiling sticky rice with cocoa powder, giving it a distinctly brown color and usually with milk and sugar to make it taste sweeter. However, dry Tsampurado or Champorado mixes are prepared by just adding boiling water.
