Indulge in Horchata Ice Cream
Among the many mouthwatering recipes, one that stands out is Horchata Ice Cream. This creamy delight is a Mexican version of the popular Horchata drink, infused with the comforting flavors of rice and cinnamon. Fany Gerson’s recipe elevates this beverage into a luscious ice cream creation. By toasting long-grain rice, almonds, and cinnamon, and steeping them in half-and-half, she extracts the essence of these ingredients. The resulting mixture is transformed into a thick custard, which is then churned into a velvety-smooth ice cream. Serve it straight from the ice cream maker or freeze it for a firmer consistency, either way, it will transport your taste buds to ice cream heaven.
