Paleo Horchata

Paleo Horchata Drink

When I was pregnant with The Little, I went through a phase when I craved Horchata like a, well, pregnant woman. ย At the time, I made it using raw milk and would drink a pint every day and then it started giving me crazy heartburn and I moved on to another foodย obsession.

Yesterday, during our Mother’s Day brunch, I was staring at the Little with a little bit of awe from what my body was able to help create and I remembered my Horchata binge drinking days and thought it was time to have another glass. This Paleo Horchata recipe is so simple! I even drink it hot out of the pan.

Ingredients

Instructions

  1. In your blender, add the coconut shreds, cinnamon powder, salt and maple syrup. Lastly add in your boiling water and blend for 1 minutes (in Blendtec on the soup setting) or 3 -4 minutes in a normal blender.
  2. Strain with a nut milk bag or fine strainer.
  3. Set in fridge to cool. You may notice that some fat gels at the top and you will want to remove this (use it in another dish).
  4. This is awesome over ice.
  5. Enjoy!

    Interesting. I need to try it. It’s past time for me to clean up my diet and change my eating habits. This looks very doable. ๐Ÿ™‚

    We have a lot in our area of Latin descent and I’ve seen several places carry Horchata. I’ve never tried it though but there’s a first time for everything ๐Ÿ™‚

    The first and only time I had horchata was when I was in Spanish class in college. You are definitely making me want to try it again!

    Sounds so different to the spanish horchata! The one we have in Spain is made with Tigernuts http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tigernut and no milk! This one sounds quite nice ^^

    One of my friends–from Mexico–owned a restaurant on NW23rd, and I loved his Horchata. I need to try your recipe because now I want some!

    I’m not a huge fan of Horchata, but I may make this for my hubby because he likes it!

    This tastes fantastic! I think I’ll be serving it warm next time because the fat started to congeal after I cooled it with ice cubes which resulted in an unpleasant texture.

    Thanks for this, though!

    I love (d) horchata, so I very much appreciate this adaptation. I added a shot of vanilla rum to one serving over ice, and this made a delicious cocktail. Thanks so much for the recipe.

        I also wanted to add that I saved the coconut that was strained out, and I later added it to a fruit salad I made for my daughter- just stirred it right in with some strawberries, banana, pear, etc. It was delicious!

        I love this horchata! So good! This may be a very silly question, but what kind of drinking glasses are those in your picture of the horchata? They are adorable, but I can’t find them anywhere.

          I’m so glad you liked it Krytal. I got them at Pier 1 during the summer.
