Vanilla Bean Horchata Iced Coffee

Thanksgiving Vanilla Bean Horchata Iced Coffee
Nutmeg Nanny

This horchata-inspired drink blends creamy-cool rice milk with warm cinnamon spice and a little sweet vanilla for a somewhat unusual but very cozy flavor.


For horchata: 

  • 1-1/3 cup long grain white rice (uncooked)
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 3 cups water
  • 1 cup whole milk
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla bean paste

For horchata iced coffee: 

  • 1 part vanilla bean horchata
  • 1 part iced coffee
  • Whipped cream, optional


For horchata:

  1. In a high powered blender (I used my Vitamix) add rice, cinnamon sticks, and water. Blend until chunky and the rice is in smaller pieces and cinnamon sticks are broken up. Let sit for at least 3 hours or overnight.
  2. Once the horchata has set place a strainer over a large bowl and lines the strainer with cheesecloth. Pour the rice mixture through the strainer, gently squeeze out the rice in the cheesecloth to try and get all the liquid.
  3. To the strained mixture add milk, sugar and vanilla bean paste. Whisk to combine. You can also opt to rinse out your blender, add the strained liquid, milk, sugar and vanilla bean paste to the blender and blend to combine.
  4. Pour the horchata mixture into a jar (I used one of these cute glass swing top bottles!) and store in the refrigerator.

For horchata iced coffee:

Add ice to a large glass and add equal parts vanilla bean horchata and iced coffee. Stir to combine and top with whipped cream if desired.
