Champurrado is a chocolate-based atole, a warm and thick Mexican drink, prepared with either masa de maíz, masa harina, or corn flour; panela; water or milk; and occasionally containing cinnamon, anise seed and or vanilla. Ground nuts, orange zest, and egg can also be employed to thicken and enrich the drink. Atole drinks are whipped up using a wooden whisk called a molinillo. The whisk is rolled between the palms of the hands, then moved back and forth in the mixture until it is aerated and frothy.
