Guatemalan Cuisine: Atol de platano

Guatemalan Cuisine: Atol de platano

One of the benefits of having a Banana Republic (not the clothing store, but the real thing!) is the tremendous amount of recipes available with plantains that became an integral part of the Guatemalan gastronomy. Today’s beverage is atol de platano, made from boiled plantains, sugar and cinnamon.

Does anyone has the actual recipes for all these atoles? Would you mind sharing them with us.

Labor Code Side Note: The Guatemalan labor code allows for two short breaks of about 15 minutes (in addition to the lunch break); one in the morning and the other in the afternoon. The breaks are known as refacción, and the act of eating something in this short break is known as refaccionar. Bon appetite my friends!
