Treat yourself to a batch of this creamy dairy free Mexican Horchata at your next fiesta. Not only is it easy to make, like most things, it is so much tastier when it is homemade. And it is wonderfully refreshing on a hot summer day.
There are countless ways to make Horchata. Different regions use different nuts and seeds including tiger nuts, sesame seeds, almonds, rice and more. All are sweetened, some use cow's milk, most use cinnamon.
This is a Mexican version combining raw almonds and rice with cinnamon and sweetener of your choice. Since I was going dairy free, I chose to go sugar free as well and used stevia. But, you can use sugar, agave, honey or your favorite sweetener.
