Despite how busy life got for my family growing up, my mom always found time to cook all of us a full meal composed of a main course, a salad, an agua fresca, and a dessert—even if that dessert was sometimes a simple atole like this one. Think of this atole de arroz as a hot rice pudding. Because the rice is blended, it has a really fun, thick, and smooth texture. The cinnamon in it makes it even more delicious on a cold day.
