Easy Mexican Atole (Champurrado)

Karina Alcala


This drink is something that is found in most Mexican families. My mom would make it for us when it was cold outside. We would drink it warm maybe accompanied by a concha or Mexican sweet bread. This is my version of it my kids love it. It is so easy and simple to make that it is better than the Packets they sell at most grocery stores.
