Rice Atole, Hot Rice Drink

READY IN: 45mins
Recipe by Mami J

Traditional atole drink from Mexico city. Make it on a cold winter night and you will love it! Reheat it in the morning and you have a nutritious drink for the kids. I warm the milk in the microwave to save about 10 minutes cooking time.

I've had this before and it's soooo good. But I had it with rice flour and milk, so there was no need for the rice or water. Then we just cooked it all till it was thickened to whatever we liked.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place the water in a large pot, bring to a boil. Add the rice and the cinnamon stick, mix well. Bring to a boil again and cook until the rice is translucent but not cooked through. Add the milk and bring to a boil again. When the rice is very soft, add the sugar and stir to dissolve. When it boils again add the cornstarch previously dissolved in the 1/4 cup water. Cook stirring often until it thickens.
