Makes 4 cups
A whole lotta Horchata!~
This is a great tasting drink! It’s basically Mexican sweet rice milk. Usually, it is made with white rice, sugar, and vanilla, but I did not have vanilla and I don’t eat white rice or sugar, so I used brown rice and raisins, and it tasted just the same! It’s heaven in a cup, so drink up!
1 cup uncooked brown rice
1½ cup raisins
1 teaspoon cinnamon
4 cup water
Grind up rice in food processor for 2 min. or till gritty. Pour in water and continue to mix. Add cinnamon and raisins to mixture and blend for 2-3 min. Cover and leave in fridge overnight or if you want the rice to get softer, leave in 2-3 nights. Transfer into food processor and blend till mixture is creamy (there will still be chunkiness from the rice). Place strainer over bowl and pour mixture into it. Help liquid thru by mixing it with a spoon as it sits in strainer. Chill. Serve with ice.
