  • 3 cups hot water + 1 cup warm water
  • 3 cups milk

  • 1 tablet Mexican chocolate
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


  • Firstly, in a small pot, dissolve one cup of Pinole Blue Masa in 3 cups of hot water.
  • Stir constantly and use a wooden frother.
  • Once the masa is dissolved, set the small pit to the side.
  • We will come back to it later.
  • Secondly, in a separate pot, bring one cup of water to a boil on medium heat.
  • As it starts to simmer, add the cinnamon stick and piloncillo. Stir constantly to dissolve the piloncillo.
  • Once the piloncillo dissolves, add the milk and chocolate tablet.
  • Then, stir constantly to break apart the chocolate so that it melts into the mixture.
  • Next, add the vanilla extract.
  • Continue to stir so that everything blends together.
  • As the mixture starts to simmer, reduce the heat to medium-low.
  • Now, add in the masa-water mixture.
  • Next, use the wooden frother to mix everything up.
  • Then, bring it to a gentle boil.
  • Finally, once everything is dissolved, and the mixture bubbles, you are ready to enjoy!
