Keep warm and cozy with a thick and creamy mug of Mexican Atole! This traditional drink is perfect to enjoy during the winter and around the holidays.
Let’s get started!
- milk - piloncillo - cinnamon stick - masa harina - water - vanilla extract - salt
Replace the milk with the creamiest dairy-free plant milk, like almond, pea, or oat milk.
Remove and discard the cinnamon stick, using a strainer if it has broken into pieces. In a small bowl, add warm water and masa harina. Whisk together until smooth.
Add the masa harina mixture, vanilla extract, and salt to the saucepan. Bring to a simmer, reduce heat to low, and continue to cook for 25 minutes, stirring frequently.
The atole should be thick enough to coat the back of a spoon. Serve and garnish with a touch of ground cinnamon or a cinnamon stick.
