    That is weird. I don’t like the idea of a made-up non-existent beverage though.

      I suppose you could always follow through with it. Sprout Quinoa, ferment it and make a drink out of it. Perhaps it would have some really great properties. At any rate, the name is there, all you have to do is make it and it will no longer be non-existent.

    Dr. Michael G, how did they make their cocoa drinks? Mashed up cacao beans and boiled in water? How much did they have to drink? Why did they stop drinking cocoa when they moved to the mainland?

      I read somewhere they cooked it with mashed banana.

    I little more information on how to prepare a beneficial beverage would have been nice, instead of a teaser article. Bad Doctor!

      Yeah how do you prepare this mysterious cocoa drink!? I’ve never heard of such a thing as a cocoa drink. Perhaps he should patent that too! Maybe they should send researchers to find out what the secret recipe is. Alas. I bet it would be really good on a cold winters day with marshmallows in it….. But the world will never know!
