A Horchata is the Mexican version of a milkshake but without the milk; sweet and creamy, it is made with rice, almonds and sugar.


  • 1 cup raw long grain white rice
  • 1/2 cup blanched whole almonds
  • 2/3 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 pinch cinnamon, plus more for garnish
  • 4 cups water
  • freshly ground nutmeg, to garnish


  1. Place the rice, almonds, sugar, vanilla, a pinch of cinnamon and 4 cups water into a blender, and blend for at least 1 minute. The rice and the almonds should be totally pureed and the mixture smooth.
  2. Stain the mixture through a mesh strainer and into 4 glasses filled with ice.
  3. Garnish each Horchata with freshly ground nutmeg and serve immediately.
