Ube Horchata, a delicious fusion of Asian & Mexican flavors 💜 this is super quick and simple version of horchata since I’m using carton Almond & Rice or Coconut Milk + Ube Flavoring which gives it that gorgeous purple color. Horchata is traditional Mexican drink made from rice soaked in water, after the rice is softened, it’s blended with cinnamon and sugar then strained.  Ube is a purple yam that’s used it many sweets & desserts in the Philippines and Hawaii.  The flavor of horchata + ube pair very well together, it’s sweet, nutty with a hint of cinnamon – I also topped it with ube whipped cream for an extra special treat.
