Toasted Rice Horchata

Toasted Rice Horchata

Makes 1 large pitcher.

Ingredients:

- 1 cup long grain rice, washed
- 4 cups water
- 4 Genmaicha tea bags
- 2 cups almond milk
- 1/3 cup agave, or to taste
- 1 Tbsp cinnamon, plus more for garnish
- 1 Tbsp vanilla bean paste

Directions:

  1. In a large bowl, combine the rice, water and tea bags. Allow this to soak for at least 4 hours or overnight at room temp.
  2. Remove the tea bags, then transfer the mixture to a blender. Blend on high for a few minutes until it looks like milk. Pour the mixture through a strainer layered with several pieces of cheesecloth or a nut milk bag and into a large pitcher.
  3. Add the almond milk, cinnamon and vanilla bean paste to the milk and mix them in well with a wire whisk or in the blender until frothy. Serve chilled or over ice.
