  • Add rice, almonds, and cinnamon sticks to a high-speed blender. Blend for about 30 – 60 seconds on high speed or until finely pulverized, stopping occasionally and shaking the blender if the mixture sticks to the bottom.
  • Pour in 1 cup of water, sugar, and vanilla. Blend an additional 30 seconds. If your blender can fit the additional liquid pour in the remaining 2 cups of water, and milk, otherwise pour into a large enough container to fit along with the water and milk.
  • Cover and chill for 8 – 12 hours
  • Strain mixture through a fine mesh sieve into a pitcher. If you are making the Strawberry Horchata, blend in the strawberries before serving.
  • Serve with ice if desired, garnishing with strawberries or cinnamon powder and cinnamon sticks.
