Traditional Tsokolate Tablea Recipe


You only need three ingredients for a traditional preparation of tablea tsokolate. 


For One Serving

  • 20g (about four snaps Oodaalolly tablea)

  • 1 cup of water 

  • Sugar to taste - start with ¼ to ½ teaspoon (we prefer Philippine muscovado or coconut sugar)


  • pot/kettle 

  • cup(s)

  • Spoon, whisk, or small mixer (if you can get one, a batidor or a batirol is the traditional mixing method). If you live near an IKEA, we recommend their Produkt milk-frother ($3.00). You can also find similar devices on Amazon.   


For a traditional preparation, bring water to a boil. For a non-traditional preparation, bring milk to a boil. 

Drop in the tablea, and after it softens, break it up with your spoon or mixing device. The real mixing begins after this initial mixing. 

Using your batirol, whisk, or milk frother (rotate the opposite direction of the spin or the cup will overflow), mix the chocolate evenly throughout. 

REMEMBER: There is no right or wrong way to make tsokolate.  Make it how you like! Some recipes call for nut butter. Make tablea tsokolate your own.
