Since we love using a coffee substitute paired with other simple ingredients, the flavor is so fresh and delicious. There's nothing worse than having a good drink recipe but it being weighed down by a ton of ingredients and flavors.
Is horchata usually alcoholic?
There may be some who add some sort of alcohol to their Horchata recipe, but it doesn't seem to be common. It's your drink, you can add in whatever you'd like. We like to keep it non-alcoholic so that it's a fun drink recipe for all to be able to enjoy.
What does horchata taste like?
It's a really sweet and smooth drink. The coconut milk and the coconut cream make it quite delicious and creamy. Adding in the maple syrup adds a natural sweetness and the vanilla pairs perfectly, too.
Even though the cinnamon doesn't add any sweetness, it does give it a nice and warm flavor.
Does horchata contain milk?
There may be some Horchata recipes out there that have milk, but this drink recipe is dairy-free! Since we opt to use coconut milk, this eliminates the use of dairy whatsoever.
How long does horchata last in the fridge?
This drink isn't meant to be stored in the fridge. Since this drink recipe literally serves just one, you'll want to make and enjoy. If you do try and make this recipe ahead of time, I would just plan on storing it for a couple of hours, tops.
Be sure that you stir it and mix it well before drinking.
Can you add other toppings on Horchata?
It's really up to you. The cinnamon on top is really quite lovely, but you could always switch things up and add something a little bit sweeter if you'd like.
Even a drizzle of maple syrup on top would be a great flavor enhancer. Some people like their Horchata to be on the sweeter side anyways so this could be an easy solution for that.
