Atoles are very popular beverages in Central America with roots in Mayan cooking. They are a sort of thick drink often eaten with a spoon. Atole de elote is one based on fresh corn.

Recipe Ingredients for Atole de Elote

6 ears corn on the cob
4 cups water
1/3 cup sugar (or to taste)
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp cornstarch (opt.)
1 pinch of cinnamon

Recipe Directions for Atole de Elote

  1. Cut enough corn kernels off the cobs to make about 3 to 3 1/2 cups. Scrape the cobs with a knife to get all their milk. Place 2 1/2 cups of the corn in a blender along with 2 cups of the water and puree well.

  2. Strain pureed corn through a sieve into a medium saucepan. Discard the solids. Add the remaining corn kernels, sugar to taste, and salt.

  3. Bring liquid to a boil then reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes or until lightly thickened. If the atol isn't thickening, mix the cornstarch with a little cold water and whisk into the simmering liquid until it is just thick enough to coat a spoon.

  4. Pour into mugs or small bowls, sprinkle with a little cinnamon and serve hot with a spoon. Serves 6.
