Guatemalan Sweet Corn and Milk Drink (Atol de Elote)Christopher Bagley

This sweet corn beverage is doled out warm in Guatemalan markets, often seasoned with cinnamon or vanilla. Corn kernels are pulverized on a grinding stone or metate to achieve the drink's silky, creamy consistency (but you can use a blender).
