I love Horchata, it has been on the top of my list of favorite things for YEARS!!! When I served a mission for my church I fell even more in love with it, as a guy I knew often made it for us for conferences! When my family gets burgers and shakes, I stop by my favorite taco shop and get a large Horchata!
HERE is a remake of my favorite recipe for the stuff! The almonds are more of a regional thing, so if you don't use them, it is still great (and more "northern mexico").
I never cease to be amazed that such a delicious 'creamy' drink is totally dairy free! Sweeeeet!
