Atole de Leche (Milk with Masa Drink)
By Melissa's Corporate Chefs


7 ounces Masa Harina
1 1/2 quarts Water
3 cups Milk
8 ounces Piloncillo (Brown Sugar Cones)
1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
1 stick Canela (Cinnamon Sticks) (4 inches)


Dissolve the masa harina in 1 quart of water, then strain the water into a saucepan (throw away the masa).

Boil until it is thick, stirring with a wooden spoon, about 15 minutes.

Add the milk, piloncillo, vanilla, and canela.

Bring the liquid back to a simmer, stirring often to thicken.

This will take about 45 minutes, keeping the heat at a minimum so the milk doesn’t curdle.

Remove the canela stick before serving.

Makes 8 servings.
