  • About

This traditional dessert from Lima shares its funny name (it sounds like shampoo), with a local fruit. Originally, it was served as a hot beverage during cold winter nights. During the Spanish Colonial period, it was typical to hear the champuceras (women who prepared and sold champuz on the streets) announcing their product.
