- 4 cups hot water
- 1 1/2 cups long-grain rice
- 1 can (14 ounces) NESTLÉ LA LECHERA Sweetened Condensed Milk
- 1 cup milk
- 2 cinnamon sticks
- 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
COMBINE water, rice, sweetened condensed milk, milk and cinnamon sticks in large bowl; cover and cool at room temperature. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
REMOVE cinnamon sticks. Spoon rice into blender (reserve soaking liquid); cover. Blend on high for 3 to 4 minutes or until mixture is as smooth as possible. Add the reserved soaking water; blend for an additional 2 minutes. Strain mixture through a cheesecloth or extra fine sieve into a pitcher, pressing the rice solids until only a dry paste remains; discard paste. Repeat process if necessary to eliminate all rice solids from liquid.
POUR into tall glasses with ice cubes. Sprinkle with ground cinnamon.
Review This Recipe
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.
