Easy Horchata Recipe: Ready in 89 Seconds

So, You Want An Easy Horchata Recipe?

Easy Horchata RecipeTraditionally, homemade horchata recipes have required many ingredients and multiple steps, including the use of your hot stove (which defeats the purpose if you’re craving a refreshing horchata drink). Sure, you could break out all those items and spend an hour preparing it all. Or, you could use a horchata recipe that has the drink in your hand, in about 89 seconds. And the best part is you won’t be sacrificing taste, even though your horchata drink is painfully easy to make!

How To Make Horchata, The Easy Way

16 fl oz Blended Horchata Drink

1st Step of Horchata Recipe
Get Big Train’s VIVAZ Horchata Mexican Inspired Drink Mix

At this time, Big Train’s VIVAZ Horchata Mexican Inspired Drink Mix is only available for business customers. If you’re a business, please keep reading. If you’re a consumer, please check out the Big Train Store Locator, to find a location near you that serves our products. Or, you can request that your favorite drink shop carry Big Train products.

2nd Step of Horchata Recipe
Add 1 Scoop of Horchata Mix to 5 oz of Milk or Water

Note: 1 scoop is about 3 oz. Your horchata recipe can go one of two ways here. Both will be delicious, but using milk will produce a richer, creamier drink. The choice is yours. Feel free to experiment with each option, and take note of the differences.

3rd Step of Horchata Recipe
Add 16 oz of Ice Into the Blender

Big Train recommends 16 oz of ice for this blended horchata recipe, but you can certainly experiment with more or less ice. More ice will result in a slightly frothier drink, while less ice will lead to a horchata drink that is thinner and more flat.

4th Step of Horchata Recipe
Blend Until Smooth, And Serve

Clearly, we can not guarantee an 89-second prep time from start to finish, but the blending time should not be more than a minute. So, if you’re working at a decent pace, we’re confident you can create a delicious blended horchata drink in 89 seconds…or less!

Other Ways to Prepare

In addition to blending your horchata drink, Big Train suggests two other methods of preparation:

16 fl oz Iced Drink

Mixing Instructions: Add 1 scoop (3.2 oz) of Big Train’s VIVAZ Horchata Mexican Inspired Drink Mix to 8 fl oz of hot water and stir until dissolved. Pour over a 16 oz cup filled with ice. And voila!

16 fl oz Hot Drink

Mixing Instructions: Add 1 scoop (3.2 oz) of Big Train’s VIVAZ Horchata Mexican Inspired Drink Mix to 14 fl oz of hot water and stir until dissolved. This one is even easier than the other two!
