Horchata Coffee Recipe (Hot or Iced)
I am very much on a new coffee kick with a new recipe I whipped up this week: homemade horchata coffee! Hot or iced, this recipe is simply delicious.
As an added bonus, it’s got just enough sweetness without being overloaded with sugar so it’s a healthier alternative to sugar-laden lattes. Feel free to adjust the recipe by making it with your own non-dairy alternative, if you prefer!
I love this recipe iced, but on a chilly day, a hot cup of horchata coffee really does the trick. Try them both for yourself & see what you prefer. Enjoy!
- 2 cups Milk
- 2 tbsp Sugar
- 2 tsp Cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp Vanilla Extract
Pour a bit of your milk into a mason jar (about 1/4 cup). Add all of the cinnamon & mix with a fork well (until there aren't any clumps of cinnamon left).
Add the remaining ingredients into the jar. Shake until mix is well-incorporated (this is especially important for the cinnamon).
Shake vigorously before use.
If you’re having issues getting the cinnamon well-incorporated into the mix, let it sit overnight before use. The horchata mix will meld better that way! You can also try blending it before use.
