IcedHorchataMmm-mmm!  Coffee-mate Natural Bliss Sweet Cream makes the below traditional Mexican beverage, the Iced Horchata, a bit more contemporary.  Plus it’s made with only milk, cream and sugar…we love an ingredient list we can pronounce! 

Iced Horchata (makes 6)

4 cups hot water
1 cup white rice, rinsed and drained
2 cinnamon sticks
1 cup granulated sugar
1 cup Coffee-mate Natural Bliss Sweet Cream
4 ounces spiced rum (optional)
Ice cubes
Ground cinnamon

Combine water, rice and cinnamon sticks in large bowl; cool. Cover; refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight.

Remove cinnamon sticks. Spoon rice into food processor or blender (reserve soaking liquid); cover. Process on high for 3 to 4 minutes. Add reserved soaking liquid and sugar; process for 2 minutes. Strain mixture through a cheesecloth or fine sieve into a pitcher, pressing the rice solids until only a dry paste remains; discard paste. Stir Coffee-mate and rum into mixture.

Serve over ice. Sprinkle with cinnamon.
