Horchata Ice Cream

Horchata is a rice drink flavored with cinnamon. It can be found at street vendors on both sides of the border, along with other flavored waters, called Aguas Frescas (fresh waters). For a more refreshing Tex-Mex treat, this ice cream brings the flavors of Horchata to a new and icy level. NOTE: PREP TIME does not include refrigeration time OR churning time.
