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 some time, I had been searching on the internet yesterday. In search of new, stirring thoughts, inspirational recipes that I’ve never used before, to delight my family with. Looking for quite some time yet couldn’t discover lots of interesting stuff. Right before I thought to give up on it, I stumbled on this delightful and easy treat simply by luck over Suncakemom. The dessert looked so yummy on its photo, that required rapid action.

It was simple enough to imagine the way it’s made, its taste and how much my hubby is going to like it. Actually, it is extremely simple to please the man when it comes to treats. Yes, I’m a blessed one. Or perhaps he is.Anyways, I visited the webpage and used the precise instuctions that had been coupled with nice graphics of the operation. It just makes life quite easy. I could imagine that it is a slight inconvenience to shoot pics in the midst of cooking in the kitchen because you most often have sticky hands thus i seriously appreciate the commitment she placed in to build this blogpost .

With that said I’m inspired presenting my personal recipes in the same way. Many thanks for the idea.

I had been fine tuning the initial recipe create it for the taste of my family. I have to say that it was an incredible outcome. They prized the taste, the structure and loved getting a sweet such as this in the midst of a hectic workweek. They basically wanted more, many more. So next time I am not going to commit the same mistake. I’m likely to double the quantity to keep them happy.

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.
