Make Your Own Dairy-Free Horchata

It's time to build up an arsenal of tasty beverages to help get us through the summer. Horchata should definitely be on the list.

Making your own horchata is the best way to go because you can tailor the drink just to your likings. Every recipe is different. Most use evaporated and/or condensed milk, which I'm not particularly fond of. The version I'm sharing with you today is refreshing and not too sweet. It uses whole foods and won't weigh you down on these hot, hot summer days.
