We fell in love with this drink here in Cusco, Peru…
Chicha Morada is a purple corn drink that is super high in resveratrol. Purple corn can have 4 times more resveratrol than red wine!
Plus, there’s no alcohol… 🙂
Take a look as Annmarie makes a cleaner, healthier Renegade Health version of this awesome chicha morada…
Your question of the day: Have you ever had chicha morada?
Here’s the recipe for Chicha Morada:
– 1 lb dried purple corn kernels
– 4 qt cold water
– 6 Ceylon Cinnamon Sticks
– 6 Whole cloves
– 1/2 cup Fresh lemon juice
– 1 cup Fresh pineapple juice
– 1 c fresh apple juice
– 1/4 cup finely chopped apples
Bring the corn, cinnamon and cloves to a boil. Lower heat and let simmer for an hour, drain off the liquid and let cool. Once cool add lemon juice, pineapple juice and apple juice and stir together. Serve in a nice wine glass with piece of apple! Enjoy with friends and family 🙂
(I made much less on the show because of the pot size we had)
