I tried this recipe before a children's class. Good thing! I think it is missing something...maybe milk? Found another recipe for atole that included milk and this drink is yummy.

  1. Place the 1/4 cup hot water and the masa into the jar of a blender and blend until smooth. Transfer to a medium sized saucepan. Scrape the seeds of the vanilla bean into the pan and add the cinnamon stick. Stir mixture until it begins to thicken.
  2. Add the piloncillo or sugar/molasses combination and continue to stir vigorously until the sugar is dissolved. Remove mixture from the heat. Slowly add the whole milk.
  3. Remove the cinnamon stick and add the pureed fruit and return to your heat source until mixture is warmed through. Remove the vanilla bean and serve hot.
