Recipe: Chicha Morada

6 persons / 2,5hrs


This national lemonade is made from purple corn, chicha morada. The sweets, this lemonade and the dessert from this corn are my favourites. In Peru you drink this in a longdrink glass with a lot of ice cubes. Also great to make popsicles of the lemonade. If you prefer an alcoholic drink, mix with 1/4th of prosecco!


  • 1 bag / 0,5 kilo of maiz morada (purple corn)
  • 1 pineapple
  • 1 apple, cut in two
  • the peel of 1 orange
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 clove
  • 50 g of cane sugar
  • 3 liters of water


  1. Boil de chicha morada over medium heat with the shell of the pineapple, the apple , the peel of the orange, the cinnamon and clove till the corn kernels start to open. This takes about 2 hours.
  2. Sieve, add the sugar and lime juice and let everything cool down.
  3. Serve it in a big glass with a lot of ice cubes.
