This recipe will deliver to you the great flavor of horchata in a matter of minutes.
- 1 cup rice (uncooked)
- 2 sticks cinnamon, broken into 2 or 3 pieces
- 2 cups Organic Valley® Milk or Soy Milk
- 1 small can (14-oz.) sweetened condensed milk
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 tsp. vanilla extract
- ground cinnamon
Combine rice and cinnamon stick pieces in a large, stainless steel or ceramic bowl. Stir in 12 cups of water. Let mixture stand at room temperature until rice is very soft, 6 or more hours, or up to overnight.
Without disturbing the rice on the bottom, pour most of the water into a large jug; reserve. Remove cinnamon from rice mixture and reserve. Add Organic Valley® Milk or Soy Milk, condensed milk, sugar and vanilla to the rice mixture. Stir to mix. Process in blender or food processor, working in batches, until as smooth as possible. Stir mixture into reserved water. Return cinnamon pieces to the mixture; chill thoroughly.
Remove cinnamon sticks. Shake or stir punch briskly and serve in tall glasses packed with ice cubes. Garnish each glass with a sprinkling of ground cinnamon.
