3/4 cup sugar
1 tsp vanilla

Tips and Tricks:

First let me say that this recipe is for making large quantities OR when you are on a time crunch. If you are hosting a small dinner party, or just feel like having a special treat on a hot summer day, you should take the time to make REAL horchata.Horchata is a creamy drink made with rice milk, vanilla & cinnamon. Just google it and there are many recipes for making this drink.




For a guest list of 50, I use 2 batches of this 1.5 quart quisinart ice cream maker. Be sure the cooler churn is VERY frozen (as well as all ingredients) when ready to churn. (I usually have in freezer overnight…actually its always in my freezer incase I need to make a batch on a whim!)
