    Awesome

    I've been looking for the perfect horchata recipe, and I've found it!!!! PLEASE halve the amount of condensed milk, or it will be too sweet...I made that mistake, so I doubled everything else instead. This tastes just like the horchata at the restaurants!

    So good!

    This recipe makes some really yummy tasting horchata. Based on Carmella's Mom's review, I halved the sweetened condensed milk, and I think the sweetness level was just right. Making horchata was easier than I thought with the help of this recipe, and this homemade horchata tastes ten times better than those instant mixes!

    Perfectly Lovely

    Carmella's Mom from Dallas

    Yes! Finally I can make Horchata...this recipe is fabulous...the only thing I did different is I double all the ingredients except the sweetened condensed milk..otherwise it would be too sweet for my families taste. I also added 1 tsp of good vanilla. This is excellent! Gracias.
