    What do you mean cooked rice?

    Surprised at how good this was.. The traditional way takes a little too long (gotta let the rice soak in water overnight). This recipe is a keeper :-)

    For better richer taste & results you should let the almond/rice/water mixture set in the fridge covered for at least 8hrs. Other than that this is a good basic quick Horchata recipe.

    Can you replace agave nectar for Sugar?

  • PJ

    You need to actually cook the rice in boiling water. It won’t work right out of the bag.
