Rice, cinnamon and milk! A refreshing combination for this horchata agua fresca served over ice!
Horchata con Almendra (Brown Rice)
Yields up to 8 cups
3 cups water
1 1/4 cups, previously steamed, brown rice( I used jasmine rice)
1 cup slivered almonds
2 inch piece of Mexican canela(cinnamon)
1/2 agave nectar or honey
*5 cups cold water
Combine everything in a bowl. Cover and let sit overnight in the refrigerator.
Next day, transfer to the blender. Blend on high until as smooth as possible. add 3 cups of cold water. Blend again and then strain into a large pitcher. Add 1-2 more cups of cold water. Because of the almonds, this horchata will be a little thicker. Taste for sweetness. Stir every time before serving because it will separate.
