Skinny Horchata

By Lakanto



  • Wash and drain rice.

  • Combine rice with cinnamon sticks in water and soak overnight in the refrigerator.

  • After the rice has soaked for at least 8-10 hours (preferably overnight), discard the cinnamon sticks and pour the rice and water into a blender.

  • Add 1/4 tsp cinnamon and blend on low for 3-5 minutes, or until well blended.

  • Pour blended rice mixture through a fine mesh sieve twice.

  • Using cheesecloth, filter the mixture one last time. This will remove the remaining, fine grit bits of rice left.

  • Pour strained mixture into a pitcher, adding the unsweetened nut milk.

  • Add in your Lakanto Maple Flavored Syrup and vanilla.

  • Stir well, taste to see if more syrup is needed for your liking.

To serve your homemade horchata, pour it over ice in rocks glasses and garnish with a sprinkle of fresh cinnamon. Horchata is rich, but as a chilled drink is just filling and frothy enough to help you stay satisfied.
