Champorado Recipe

We have told you probably near a thousand times how much we love food; and honestly, we have already lost track of the number of food we have named as our favorite already, but hear us out again this time, because what we have for you today might just be one of those food that we have loved ever since we were kids. Seriously, this one is another favorite and we are not just saying that!

Champorado

Champorado has always been one of those food that could have us waking up early in the morning even though we had a late night the day prior. It has that certain pull and we are not going to resist that pull, of course. Believe it or not, we are not a morning person growing up so we would usually sleep through breakfast and just wake up late in the day and start by having brunch or lunch instead. However, when we know we are going to have Champorado the next day or someone in our family surprises us with Champorado and tell it to us while we are half-asleep, you sure could bet we will do everything in our power to wake every cell in our body and be the first on the table. That’s how much we love Champorado!

Champorado

By the way, Champorado is a classic breakfast goodie here in the Philippines. It is well-loved by many, so to say. If you are familiar with the Asian rice porridge, then Champorado is exactly that, but instead of it being savory, Champorado is no doubt leaning more on the sweet side. Basically, it is a sweet chocolate rice porridge that is ultimately made with glutinous rice and tablea.

Champorado

Traditionally, Champorado is served for breakfast but surely, it is great as a midday snack too! With an intense chocolate flavor that could be made milkier and even sweeter, thanks to milk and sugar, Champorado is positively a guaranteed hit with both kids and kids at heart (also known as adults)!

Champorado

Truly, nothing could compare to the comforting feeling and delectable taste every spoonful of Champorado brings. As Champorado is associated to being a sweet breakfast treat, it is actually famously paired with something that is a total opposite – Tuyo, a salty dried fish that is also popular among Filipino households. This classic pairing may be of polar opposites but believe us when we say they work so well together as they balance and complement each other really nicely.

That said, if you want to experience this lovely affair that Champorado could provide, then you are in luck because you can follow our recipe on it and make it in your kitchen too. Yay!
