Masa Harina Atole (Atole de Harina de Maiz con Leche)

Corn Masa Harina Atole with milk/Atole de harina de maiz con leche

4 servings


3½ cups of milk

1/3 cup of piloncillo or brown sugar

½ cup of masa harina

1 cup of water

1 inch of a cinnamon stick.


In a medium size pot pour the milk and add the piloncillo, milk and cinnamon. Dissolve the masa harina with the cup of water until there are not lumps left. Add to the rest of the ingredients in the pot and turn the heat to medium. Cook stirring frequently until boiling point. Keep cooking until the drink begins to thicken. Remove from heat and remove the cinnamon stick.

When cold, the Atole will ticken a little more. Reheat and add more milk or water.

Have you tried Atole? I love Tamarind Atole but have a hard time liking Black bean Atole.
