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.

How to Make Horchata Ice Cream

Step-by-Step

  • 1Pour the nonfat milk into a heavy saucepan. Split the vanilla bean lengthwise and, using the tip of a paring knife, scrape the black seeds into the milk. Add the bean and the canela and bring to a simmer and cook about 15 minutes. Let cool then strain into a bowl; should have have about 2 1/2 cups of liquid.
