  • 4 cups whole milk*
  • cup sugar
  • 6 Tablespoons corn flour masa-harina
  • ¾ cups water


  • Mix milk and sugar in a saucepan. Turn heat to medium and simmer.
  • In a small bowl, mix the cornflour the ¾ cups of water. Stir well to avoid any lumps.
  • Once the milk comes to a boil, slowly whisk in the cornflour mix and bring to a boil again. Then, reduce heat to medium-low and keep simmering until thickened about 5 minutes. Stir occasionally.
  • Please be very careful before drinking it, it’s very hot! The thickness of the drink helps it maintain its heat for a long time.


* You can use whole milk or any other milk for your preference.
** To make simple Atole (without the milk), substitute the milk for water.
