Atole de Elote


Water Cinnamon stick Fresh corn Sugar Cornstarch Milk Ground cinnamon

Remove the fresh corn kernels


Remove the fresh corn kernels from the cob. Shave down along the sides of the corn. For a smoother texture, blend all the kernels.

Make the cinnamon tea


Boil water with the cinnamon stick in a large pot. Unfortunately, you can’t use ground cinnamon here. Just remember to remove it before serving.

Blend and strain


Add the corn kernels and water to a blender. Blend until smooth. Strain the corn mixture into the cinnamon tea pot.

Make the atole


Add the reserved corn kernels, sugar, and milk. Dissolve the water with the cornstarch and add it to the pot. Cook, stirring constantly, so it won’t stick to the bottom.

Serve immediately


Pour the Atole de Elote into a large cup and add a good amount of dusting of ground cinnamon. Hope you enjoy it!
