Two New Breakfast Drinks

Two new breakfast drinks I had and loved this week are Atole and a Smoothie topped with Amaranto.

Some call Atole the traditional Mexican comfort drink. It is corn based and is typically served with tamales for breakfast. Atole can also be prepared with rice, flour or oatmeal in place of the masa. I like it with a little brown sugar. Wonder why I’m wanting to put brown sugar on everything here?

This Raspberry smoothie is topped with Amaranto. Amaranto is a cereal with twice the iron and four times more calcium than wheat. They also use Amaranto to coat Mexican candy.
I like it already.

Buen Apetito!
