Tips/Tricks - Note with alterations the nutritional values will be affected, including lactose content

**This may be made up to a week in advance if stored in an airtight container and refrigerated.

**Enjoy this throughout the day all by itself; or, play with it. Use the horchata as the star ingredient in a panna cotta recipe, or offer it alongside homemade cookies for dipping. Stir it into warm oatmeal, or pour it over rice cereal for a sweet, quick breakfast. Or, infuse the horchata with black tea and serve it hot or cold as an afternoon pick-me-up.
