Cocoa milk


-2 liters of milk
-4 oz. cocoa beans with shells and everything (in U.S. and other countries can find it on Mexican or latin American stores)
-1 / 2 cup white rice, washed and left to soak from the previous day
-cinnamon sticks
-2 cloves
-sugar to taste


Roast the cocoa beans on a comal, or in a skillet. Turn it over until the hull are bold and chips, let cool and proceed to peel the cocoa. To find out if it is their point, the skins peel easily and fall apart. Blend or grind in a grinder or grinding stone with 1 / 2 cup raw rice soaked, the cinnamon sticks and two cloves.

Place the cocoa in a blender with some water and blend until you can get a soft paste. In a large jar add the milk, if it feels too strong, add a little more milk.

Brew it well. Strain and then add sugar at taste, shake well with a whisk (the traditional way in Nicaragua) or with a spoon.

Serve with some crushed ice in tall glasses or jícaras (the tradition way Nicaragua). You can also shake the juice into the jar or jícara with the grin.
