Hola amigos! Today I’m sharing another warming atole drink video and recipe, this time it’s made with guayabas or guavas. If you missed the strawberry one do check it out — also if you don’t know what atole is that recipe explains it.
If you live in one of those unlike areas in the Northern Hemisphere that’s currently being blasted with insane weather, this drink is one you’ll want to add to your repertoire.
As I mentioned in the previous atole recipe, this is a very warming and filling drink you can enjoy as a breakfast, snack or even dessert. I used masa harina (or instant Mexican corn flour) to thicken up the drink, but if you don’t like the taste you can swap it for cornstarch.
Let’s jump right into the recipe and video, shall we?!
Strawberry Atole Recipe | Atole de Fresas
- 1 pint of fresh strawberries halved
- 5 Tablespoons brown sugar (can substitute with piloncillo if desired)
- 3 cups water
- pinch baking soda
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract (I used white vanilla but doesn't really matter)
- 1 cup whole fat milk (or almond or soy milk may also be used)
- 2 Tablespoons corn flour (Maizena) (the fine white powder, not masa harina)
- half cup water
- extra strawberries for decorating optional
- 1. Place the strawberries and about half a cup of water into a blender and blend until completely smooth. Put a fine sieve over a medium pot and strain the strawberry mixture into the pot. Pour in the sugar and the remaining water (2.5 cups) and mix until well combined. Simmer for about 10 to 15 minutes over low heat to help cook the strawberries and allow the sugar to completely dissolved. Add a pinch of baking soda and stir quickly until all of the bubbles have subsided.2. Mix in the vanilla extract and cook for 1 minute. Then pour/stir in the milk and mix until well combined. At this time taste your atole and if desired add more sugar, this recipe isn't too sweet.3. In a small bowl combine the cornflour and water until you have a smooth mixture with no lumps. Stir it into the atole and mix until well combined. Continue to simmer over medium-low heat (while you stir) until the atole has thickened up similarly to gravy consistency.4. Serve straight away and decorate with strawberry slices if desired. Enjoy!
A super easy drink that will keep you warm all winter long! Remember to tag me on social media if you give this or any other recipe of mine a go.
