This champurrado recipe Filipino version is a sweet chocolate rice porridge, a popular Filipino breakfast or snack, and often served hot with Tuyo (Salted Dried Fish).
It is made from glutinous or sweet rice, cocoa powder and sugar. Milk is added to make it creamy.
I added instant coffee to make the chocolate flavor deeper and more pronounced (which I learned from Ina Garten of the Barefoot Contessa show on Food Network).
I particularly specified 'Filipino version' to distinguish it from the Mexicans' Champurrado which is a real thick hot chocolate and spice drink.
