Horchata drink

Should we embrace changes or shun them? Many things in life would have perished long ago without adapting to the new environment including the Horchata.

As I lately have a little time, I had been looking on the internet a few days ago. In search of new, exciting thoughts, inspirational meals that I’ve never used before, to amaze my family with. Searching for a while unfortunately couldn’t come across too many interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I discovered this fabulous and easy dessert by chance. It looked so yummy on its photo, it required fast actions.

It absolutely was easy to imagine the way it’s created, its taste and just how much my husband might like it. Mind you, it is very easy to keep happy him when it comes to treats. Anyways, I went to the site: Suncakemom and followed the comprehensive instuctions that have been accompanied by impressive images of the operation. It really makes life rather easy. I can imagine that it’s a slight inconvenience to take snap shots in the midst of cooking in the kitchen because you will often have gross hands thus i sincerely appreciate the effort and time she put in to build this blogpost .

Having said that I’m inspired to present my very own dishes in a similar fashion. Many thanks the idea.

I had been tweaking the original formula to make it for the taste of my family. I’ve got to say it was a great success. They enjoyed the flavour, the structure and enjoyed getting a sweet like this in the midst of a lively workweek. They ultimately requested lots more, more and more. So next time I am not going to make the same mistake. I’m going to multiply the quantity to make them pleased.

Type 2 – Horchata made from rice

Rinse the rice.

Soak the rice in 2 cups of water for 8 to 24 hours.

Place the soaked rice and some soaking water into a food processor.

Add the optional almonds, cinnamon and vanilla too and give it a whirl. Depending on the size of the food processor we may need to do this in batches.

If it doesn’t seem to be blending well then add a bit of more water and process it until there is a uniform mixture.

Pour the pureed rice and nuts into a sieve.

Add the remaining water along with the soaking water. We can use more water but be mindful of that too much water will dilute the mixture making it too watery.

Let the whole thing soak for about 15 minutes then lift the sieve and press out all the liquid from the nuts. Alternatively a cheesecloth can be used or even better invest in a vegan milker.

This is the time to taste the Horchata and add sweetener if necessary.

Pour the Horchata into a pitcher or bottle and place it into the fridge until it’s been served.
