Once in a while we’ll post stuff not related to Coffee, but about other types of drinks. This is one of those posts.

One drink that Arieanna and I like to enjoy once in a while is Atole, a cornstarch-based Mexican hot drink. The last one we had was Chocolate Atole, also known as Champurrado.

I don’t know how to make it from scratch, but it is very easy to make if you buy a package of Atole of the flavour of your choice.
Making Atole

1. Mix the package with cold water. This is important, mixing corn starch and hot water is not fun.

2. Boil some milk. You’ll have to do this slowly and stir frequently or you will burn the milk.

3. Once the milk is hot enough pour the cold mixture and stir.

4. Add sugar to taste.

5. Serve and enjoy!
