Strawberry Horchata

Prep Time 5 mins
Cook Time 5 mins
Total Time 10 mins
Servings 8 cups


  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 5 cup of cold water
  • 2 whole cinnamon sticks
  • 1 cup almond milk or skim
  • 1/2 tbsp vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup strawberry puree
  • 1/2 cup sugar


  • Start by adding the rice, cinnamon sticks, and water to a blender.
  • Blend the mixture for about 1 minute without stopping. Towards the end feel free to pulse the mixture a few times. I love pulsing on the blender, don’t you?
  • Pour the entire mixture into a bowl, cover and let it sit out on the counter for at least 8 hours, or simply overnight.
  • The following day, strain the mixture into a pitcher or container. You will save all of the liquid, and after lightly smashing the rice and cinnamon until you think no more liquid is present, then discard the solid.
  • To the pitcher, add in the milk, sugar, vanilla extract and strawberry puree. Cover the container, give this a really good stir or shake, and serve over ice.
