Horchata is a Mexican drink made from soaking rice in water. It is spiced with cinnamon and sweetened with granulated sugar.
While this version of horchata is delicious, you haven't lived until you try strawberry horchata. The drink still has the same delicious sweet cinnamon flavor but with a fresh strawberry flavor. Furthermore, since Strawberry Horchata is made with almond milk, it's vegan. Therefore, you can serve the horchata with spicy foods like hot Mexican sauce or chicken soup.
What is strawberry horchata made of?
Strawberry horchata is made of rice, water, strawberries, vanilla extract, sugar-free sweetener, and almond milk.
Is drinking horchata good for you?
Horchata is good for you. It contains beneficial nutrients like magnesium, iron, and vitamins C and E. Additionally, since this strawberry horchata is dairy-free and gluten-free, it will not cause stomach issues.
Does horchata make you lose weight?
Horchata does not make you lose weight. Although it does contain some health benefits, it has a lot of calories and carbs, which may lead to weight gain if you don't drink it in moderation.
Why does horchata taste chalky?
Horchata is made from rice. So it will have a slightly chalky taste. If you don't want your horchata to taste chalky, place a fine-mesh sieve over a blender, pour the rice mixture into it, and then discard the rice granules. Since the rice will not be blended into the horchata, it will not taste chalky.
- 1 cup White Rice, uncooked
- 3 cups Water
- 1 stick of Cinnamon
- 1 lb. Fresh or Frozen Strawberries
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
- 1 1/2 cups Sugar-Free Sweetener
- 1 1/2 cups Almond Milk
- 1/2 cup Fresh Strawberries, sliced
Place the rice, 3 cups of water, and cinnamon stick into a large bowl and mix to combine. Let it sit for 4 hours or overnight until the rice grains soften.
Remove the cinnamon stick, pour the rice and water into a high-speed blender and blend until the rice grains are crushed, and the liquid is smooth.
Add the strawberries to a clean blender, and add sugar-free sweetener and vanilla extract. Blend until smooth. Pour the strawberry mixture into a fine-mesh sieve set over the rice water.
Remove the sieve and discard the pulp, then add the almond milk and stir to combine.
