WATCH: How To Cook Ube Champorado
Ube + champorado = a delicious, colorful morning.
Champorado is a classic Pinoy breakfast so, it's only time that we upgrade it. Naturally sweet, the vibrant dessert ube halaya is a great chocolate substitute and the natural complement to the rice. Plus, it's just as fast and easy as the original so it won't be any more of a hassle to make.
