Atole is a drink thickened with masa gallina, corn flour, or cornstarch and sweetened with piloncillo (unrefined sugar). It is the base for a variety of Mexican drinks and desserts.
This atole is flavored with cinnamon, but you can also add a little mint. The one flavored with chocolate is called champurrado.
