Matcha Horchata

A twist on a classic horchata recipe, this creamy, bright matcha horchata blends the vegetal umami of matcha with the milky sweetness of horchata.

      2. Place horchata ingredients in a blender. Blend until smooth.
      3. Strain and transfer horchata to a pitcher.
      4. Place the matcha in a small bowl and cover with the hot water.
