This is so good! I've made horchata before but not like this version. I put it in a milk bottle and my neighbor thought it was just that and poured herself a glass. What a surprise!! Now she's into making horchata at her house. Thanks!! Rum does work in it too. Read More

Patience!!! Takes a while to make this but OHH is it worth it. For those having trouble straining it try placing a double layer of cheese cloth over a bowl and secure with a large rubber band. Pour puree over cheese cloth and allow to drain. Repeat process using a sieve to get the smaller particles out. It's an extra step but much easier than trying to force it through a sieve the first time and gives you a much smoother puree to finish with. Read More

I made this today and just tried it--delicious! I have never tried horchata so I have no basis for comparison but I like it a lot. My only issue was trying to strain the rice mixture...it just didn't seem to be flowing through the sieve...maybe a drop at a time but at times not even that. I finally took a flat glass pitcher lid and used that to press the top of the mixture and then it came through. Does anyone know if there is a way to make that process easier? It did eventually work though and it tastes great! I highly recommend adding the rum. Thanks for the great recipe! Read More

I used a 15 oz. can of Creme of Coconut which made it sweet enough to not add the sweetened condensed milk. I also added a sprinkle of cinnamon before straining the mixture and finished it off with 1/2 cup of half & half to make it a bit creamier. Next time I would run the final product through a blender to incorporate the creme of coconut better. Delicious! It got rave reviews from everyone! Read More

Try straining it in batches. I use a large wire strainer and I fill it 1/3 of the way full before I dump out the rice. Read More

Wow.... this is amazing!!! This is the perfect drink for a nice sunny day very refreshing. while making this i found it was easier to strain out the almond rice and coconut mixure if i poured it in small amounts instead of all at once. then i took a piece of aluminum foil and pressed down on it to get all of the liquid out. i'm going to recommend this recipe to all of my friends!

This was so good! Ive made horchata before using another recipe and it was horrible. This recipe was delicious. The almonds and the coconut add so much and using the sweetened condesed milk made it sweet but not sugary. This is my go to recipe from now on. Thank you! Read More
