Coconut Atole

  • Reading time:1 mins read

Atole is a traditional Mexican drink.

The drink is often served for breakfast or as an after dinner snack.

Its consistency reminds us of a thin cream of wheat, so it makes sense that it is often served for breakfast like cream of wheat or oatmeal.


  • 6 cups of coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon coconut extract
  • 4 to 6 tablespoons of coconut sugar, depending on your taste
  • ½ cup of water
  • 5 teaspoons of cornstarch
  • 1 cup or shredded coconut
  • 2 tablespoons of honey


  1. ​​Place a deep pot on the stove and add the milk, coconut extract and sugar. Cook at low heat.
  2. In a large bowl, combine the 1/2 cup of water with the cornstarch and stir until the mixture turns white.
  3. When the milk first reaches its boil add the cornstarch mixture and mix with a spoon until reaching a viscous consistency.
  4. Before serving the atole, frost the cups you’re going to use with the shredded coconut.
  5. To get it to stick, use the honey.
