Mayan Atole is a warm winter drink with a long history. It’s a simple beverage, and is really best made with Yucateccan ingredients, such as Mexican cinnamon, and piloncillo! If you can’t find these items at your local store, we have listed some alternatives that we used, and it turned out delicious! 🙂
We love making Atole when we make tamales. We use some of the masa we are using to make the tamales for the Atole. When I was a kid, making tamales with my mom, she would use some of the freshly ground corn (rather than bought masa), to make Atole for everyone helping with the tamales.
