Horchata Rice Pudding

Horchata Shopping Tip

Buy cultured dairy products like yogurt, sour cream, and buttermilk; these contain live, active bacteria (the friendly kind) that have been shown to ease certain digestive problems.

Horchata Cooking Tip

Products like buttermilk and yogurt make for flavorful marinades that tenderize – use yogurt marinades for lamb or try soaking chicken or fish fillets in buttermilk before frying.
