Spice It Up!

Sweet Corn Atole

Yields 4 servings

2 cups of fresh corn grains

4 cups of milk

3/4 cup of water

1/2 stick of cinnamon

1/3 cup of sugar (or more to adjust to your personal taste)

5 Tablespoons of cornstarch

Note: You can use honey or any other kind of sweetener.


Dissolve the cornstarch with a cup of water until there are not lumps. Set aside. Puree corn grains with 1 cup of the milk in the blender until smooth.

Using a colander or sieve strain the liquid and pour into a pot adding the sugar, milk and cinnamon.. Cook over medium heat bringing the mixture to a boil and stir frequently to avoid sticking, until mixture thickens. It could take 15 minutes or more to get to this point. Remove from heat and serve warm.

hello Patricia,

Corn grains are the kernels of the corn. You can also use the ones you find in the frozen section at the supermarket.

Love this!!! In my country "Guatemala" its call "Atol de Elote"  but the real one doesn't have cornstarch or milk because it will change the favor of the corn, try to make it without those add a pinch of salt and you'll taste the difference.... also when we serve it instead of the cinnamon we add some cooked kernels.... enjoy it!!!!
