Champolas are common in the southern states of Campeche, Yucatan, and Quintana Roo. Even the State of Veracruz in the Gulf of Mexico has its own version. According to Chef David Sterling from the Mexican Cooking School “Los Dos” in Yucatan, they are also popular throughout the Caribbean, from Cuba to Puerto Rico. The Guanabana fruit is the classic flavor for a Champola, but nowadays you can find many other fruit flavors.
I will share with you two ways in which to prepare the Champola: one using frozen fruit, and another using fresh fruit.
