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 was looking on the web the other day. Trying to get new, exciting ideas, inspirational meals that I’ve never tasted before, to impress my family with. Searching for a long time unfortunately could not come across lots of interesting things. Just before I wanted to give up on it, I ran across this delicious and easy dessert simply by chance over Suncakemom. The dessert seemed so yummy on its photos, that called for immediate actions.

It had been easy to imagine the way it is made, how it tastes and how much boyfriend will probably enjoy it. Mind you, it is very simple to impress the man in terms of cakes. Anyways, I visited the website and simply followed the step by step instuctions that have been accompanied by impressive photographs of the operation. It really makes life much easier. I could suppose it’s a slight effort to take photos down the middle of baking in the kitchen as you usually have gross hands so I genuinely appreciate the commitment she placed in to make this blogpost and recipe conveniently implemented.

With that in mind I’m inspired presenting my own recipe in a similar way. Many thanks the thought.

I had been tweaking the original formula create it for the taste of my loved ones. I can mention it had been a great success. They prized the flavor, the structure and loved getting a sweet like this in the middle of a busy workweek. They basically requested more, a lot more. Thus the next time I am not going to commit the same miscalculation. I am gonna twin the volume to make 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.
