"Horchata has always been a favorite of my daughter since she was a little girl. This easy version is from Allrecipes.com. Hopefully Lola does not mind me posting it here.I like mine with less cinnamon, so you might start off with a tsp. cinnamon and see if it is enough."

"Great recipe, and if you are in a pinch for time of just lazy you can use ricedream rice milk instead of making your own."
"I looooove this recipe. It is easy and fun to make. Thanks!"
"Once again, Recipezaar comes to the rescue. My daughter needed a traditional recipe with a "history" for her Spanish class. I'm not sure what the history of Horchata is, but I was glad to find this easy recipe that was delicious! My rice didn't "break up" much in the blender after one minute, but the rice water was a cloudy color with a sediment at the bottom, so I guess I did that right. In any case, we enjoyed this and I'm sure it will be a big hit tomorrow! Thank you for sharing!"
"I made a healthier version of this recipe: Used brown rice Filtered water Instead of sugar, used 2/3 tspn of stevia, which is a plant derivative and sweeter than sugar Everything else is the same. What a great recipe! Delicious and now I have to make it all the time for the hubby. He uses this instead of milk for his protein shake. Thanks for posting."
"A wonderful first experience with horchata for me!! I actually had it warmed, as a bedtime drink- MMmmm! I halved the sugar and that was perfectly sweet. It was so easy and you can be sure I'll make it again."
"I have not try this berverage but will. Real horchata is made out of chufa bean (is typical in Valencia, Spain where its the traditional drink in summertime the nut came originally from Egypt) and difficult to do....so this one looks like a good option, as soon as I try it I will let you know in comparison to horchata how is tastes."
"YES! I LOVE horchata and this is such an easy way to make it and it turns out just like I like it! I used 1 percent milk. I also used Splenda and am so happy to be able to have "diet" sugar-free horchata! I let mine stand overnight and stirred it a few times. I love cinnamon so ended up using extra. Thanks for this keeper recipe cookiedog! Made for Beverage tag."
"I like rice beverage and this is a way to do it and less expensive. Next time I will try with less cinnamon. Maybe a little bit less milk. I used Splenda. Thanks Cookiedog :) Made for the Market tag."
"Horchata has to be one of the best drinks in the world! I had this at a local community lunch along with some tamales and flan, and I could have kept the horchata all to myself! It is refreshing, slightly sweet and healthy-yummy!"
"Ooh, I like this stuff! I made a batch of this for DH, but ended up stealing half of it for me. I liked that it was so easy to make (a little time consuming because of the standing time for the rice water, but super-easy because the hands-on work is next to nothing). We'll definitely be enjoying this one again. Thanks for posting!"
