I loved this drink growing up. It is very delicious and great on a cold chilly day. My Mexican grandmother used to make this for us when I was a kid, and now I make it for my kids. Very delicious. Serve hot, alone or you can top with whipped cream and dust some cinnamon over it. Sugar can also be less or more, suited to taste.

I liked this but it is by no means Atole or Champurrado. Atole and Champurrado are two different drinks. Atole does not contain chocolate and neither of the two are made with corn starch but with corn masa. Cinnamon sticks are used not ground cinnamon. Having said that and taking into consideration that this is an Americanized fusion of two Mexican drinks it is tasty. Read More
