Homemade Horchata
  • 1 cup flaked coconut
  • 1¼ cup uncooked long-grain white rice
  • 1 cinnamon stick (optional)
  • 6 cups boiling water
  • 6 cups rice milk
  • 1¼ cup sugar (or more to taste
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  1. Combine coconut and rice in a blender. Add 2 cups boiling water; let stand 15 minutes. Blend 1 minute or until smooth. Strain mixture through a fine sieve or cheesecloth into a pitcher, pressing mixture with the back of a spoon to remove as much liquid as possible. Discard solids. Stir in remaining ingredients, stirring until sugar dissolves. Serve over ice.
