Horchata recipe (Dairy Free)

Super delicious and simple summer beverage, Horchata. Its a Mexican rice drink. Very refreshing yet satisfying drink. I enjoy this with my family for 4 of July, and it a big hit.

Remember this recipe is not designed to be super sweet. I recommend adjust the sweetness content as you go. This recipe is not too creamy or heavy either, it's meant to be light and refreshing. If you prefer more of a creamy consistency. Simply add in extra soy milk.
