Expert Tips

If atole becomes lumpy, run it through a fine mesh strainer.

Winter brings us those sweet, comfy and thick drinks to keep us warm on chilly nights. One of my favorite drinks to make for my family is atole de guayaba because it’s so quick and easy to prepare. I love the aroma the guavas and cinnamon release as they boil. They make my kitchen smell heavenly and a sip of this drink is guaranteed to warm you up inside instantly. Drink it as is or enjoy it with your favorite pan dulce for a sweet, mid-afternoon treat.

Directions

  • 1 Cut guavas in half and carefully remove seeds with a spoon. In a large stock pot, over medium heat, place hollowed-out guava slices and cinnamon stick, fill with 4 cups water and boil for 5 minutes and let cool.
  • 2 Remove cinnamon stick and guavas and blend them with 1/2 cup of the same water in which they were boiled. The consistency should be a thick purée.
  • 3 Dissolve cornstarch in 1/2 cup of water.
  • 4 In a separate heavy stock pot, add baking soda and milk. Stir in guava mixture and add the cornstarch that you dissolved earlier. Lower heat and stir. Add sugar and stir with wooden spoon to avoid lumps. Cook for 3 minutes until thickened.
