Horchata Made Easy

Recipe by  

"Horchata (cinnamon rice milk) has been a favorite addition to the many Mexican meals I've had in the Bay Area. It's lightly sweet and refreshing. This is a much easier recipe than the traditional method which requires up to 3 hours to make."

For an horchata shortcut, this is pretty good. I do like it with more cinnamon but overall this is a great alternative to the traditional horchata.

This recipe is a great alternative to making horchata if you don't have a blender. Next time I would use just a little bit more cinnamon, but aside from that it is most excellent.

This was good. I thought when first made it was too thin and watery tasting. Much better the next day. Just be careful you do not dilute it too much if you serve it with ice cubes.

I would definitely make again but I added a dash of vanilla and a bit more cinnamon. Kids loved it, nothing beats the real thing but this is a close second.
