Strawberry horchata agua fresca
This strawberry horchata recipe is creamy, lightly sweet and also dairy-free! A fun and healthy way to make one of the most pupular Mexican drinks.
(200g) uncooked white rice
(1.5 L) water
(160ml) almond milk
(or coconut, soy, oats milk)
small cinnamon stick
(or any sweetener you prefer)
Rinse the rice under cool water. Place it in a large bowl and add the cinnamon stick. Add water until covered for about 2inch (5cm) and let it soak for at least 4 hours or better yet, overnight.
Add the soaked rice and cinnamon along with the soaking water to a blender. Blend it on high until it is completely smooth (about 3-4 minutes).
Strain the liquid into a large pitcher and discard the leftover pulp.
Wash thoroughly the strawberries, add ⅔ to the blender with half a cup of water and blend until smooth. Strain into the pitcher with the rice water discarding any leftovers.
Add the almond milk, vanilla extract and stevia to taste. Stir well until combined.
Chop the rest of the strawberries and add to the horchata, adjusting also the other ingredients to your liking (sugar, extracts).
Place the pitcher in the refrigerator and let it cool for 1-2 hours. Or you can also serve with crushed ice on tall glasses immediately.
