1/4 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 cup fruit puree of choice, such as soursop, cherimoya, mamey, guava, or passion fruit
1 cup whole milk
2/3 cup cold water
1. In a 1-quart saucepan, stir 2/3 cup water into cornstarch. Cook, whisking constantly, over medium-low hea.
2. Stir in sugar and vanilla. Then stir in fruit puree and milk until well blended. Keep stirring until atole is frothy.
