1 cup white rice
2 cups water to cover rice
6 cups water
Sugar, to taste

Do not rinse enriched rice. Cover rice with 2 cups water, and soak 2-3 hours. Does not have to be cooked. (or simmer 5-10 minutes then cool.) Whirl rice in blender. Combine with 6 cups water. Allow rice to settle or strain off liquid. Add sugar and a few drops cinnamon oil or vanilla flavoring to strained liquid. Milk may be used for part of liquid. Serve chilled or over crushed ice.

NOTE: This will not taste good without flavoring. Offer horchata warm or cooled to babies when they are sick and can't keep anything in their tummies. Save strained rice for another use. Cooked rice increases digestibility and available nutrition.
