Recipe from The Blue Zone´s Kitchen cookbook.

A traditional drink from one of the 7 blue zones, Nicoya Costa Rica. It´s custardy, creamy, and smooth with a hint of spice from the ginger. Nicoyan´s enjoy this as a hot beverage on cold days and a refreshing drink on hot days, you can also make an eat this as a soup. It´s taste and consistency are very similar to a sweet corn chowder. Enjoy!
