Recipe Notes

  • While you can buy horchata pre-made, I recommend you make it at home. It tastes so much better and you can control the amount of sugar going into your drink.
  • For a creamier horchata, stir in a bit of milk or, for a dairy-free version, coconut milk.
  • Stir a teaspoon of vanilla into your homemade horchata to round things out.
