This modern version is made with brown rice, coconut milk and or Lakanto stevia.
Healthy Horchata is dairy, sugar and gluten free!

You will need to let your rice soak for 4 hours so plan ahead.

1 cup raw, long grain brown rice
5 cups pure water
3/4 cup coconut milk (or almond milk)
1.5 tablespoons ground cinnamon
4 teaspoons vanilla extract (alcohol free)
4 teaspoons stevia

1) Put the water and rice in a high-performance blender and process on high for 60 seconds. Then let it stand for 4 hours.

2) Strain the mixture through a nut milk bag and into a pitcher. Squeeze the bag until all the “milk” is in the pitcher and the rice is left on the bag. No need to save the rice.

3) Add the coconut milk, cinnamon, vanilla and stevia to the pitcher and pour the mixture back into the blender for a final mix.

Serve in a tall glass over ice with a cinnamon stick or a sprinkle of ground cinnamon on top.
