Directions

For the Champurrado

1.

In a medium saucepan, combine the water, cinnamon sticks and star anise. Bring to a simmer and then remove from the heat, cover and allow to steep for 15 minutes.

2.

Remove the cinnamon and anise and turn the heat back on to medium-low. Whisk in the masa harina, LACTAID® Reduced Fat 2% Lactose-Free Milk and coconut sugar, then add the chocolate. Allow to simmer, whisking often, until the chocolate has melted and the mixture is thick and smooth, about 10 minutes.

3.

Chill in the refrigerator until cold, about 2 hours.

For the Cinnamon Twists

1.

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F, and line 2 baking sheets with parchment paper. Unroll the puff pastry onto a cutting board and brush with margarine.

2.

In a small bowl, combine the sugar, cinnamon and salt and sprinkle over the puff pastry. Cut the pastry in half vertically and then cut each half into 6 strips. Twist each strip into a long straw and place onto the prepared baking sheet. Continue with the rest of the strips, and bake until puffed and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Transfer the twists to a wire rack to cool.

For Assembly

1.

Add the champurrado to a blender with the bananas and 1 cup of ice, and blend until smooth and frothy.

2.

Pour into glasses and serve with the cinnamon twists.
