    New to Horchata? I was too until a few years ago. Hotchata (pronounced orCHATah) is a milk based drink that is made with rice, almonds, and cinnamon. The rice and almonds are soaked to make a “milk” and then pulverized and flavored.

    I’ll take a double scoop of this Easy Horchata and Dulce de Leche Ice Cream. The flavors are so good! I came across some powdered mix, similar to this, in an international store. I bought the pack and loved it! I made a cup of it to try out and thought that the sweet flavor would be perfect mixed into some ice cream. So, that’s what I did.

    I took the three ingredients – cream, sweetened condensed milk, and horchata powder, and then added in some yummy Dulce de leche to it! OMG! Beyond amazing!
