Horchata Ice Cream Recipe

I'll never forget my introduction to horchata. I was enjoying a plateful of authentic green enchiladas, courtesy of my friend Juana, when I unwittingly bit into a jalapeño pepper.

Seeing my crimson face and the tears streaming down it, Juana came to my rescue with a tall glass of cool horchata. Surprisingly, not only did it douse the fire in my mouth, but it soothed my palate with cinnamon and vanilla.

Popular in many parts of the world, horchata seems to have originated during the Middle Ages in Europe and is made of almonds, sesame seeds, tigernuts or barley. Mexican horchata is rice-based and sweetened with brown sugar.

Horchata ice cream owes its silky texture to the naturally occurring starches in rice. This delicate, custard-like treat pairs well with sauteed bananas and salted caramel sauce. Think of it as a Mexican-inspired ice cream sundae—the perfect ending to a spicy feast.

Homemade Horchata Ice Cream

Ice Cream Making Tips:

  • Buy high-quality (organic, if possible) whole milk and cream.
  • Adding sugar to the eggs helps protect them from the hot milk during tempering.
  • Tempering is an important step since it prevents the eggs from scrambling.
  • As soon as the custard passes the coating test, remove it from the burner and strain.
  • Chill custard at least 8 hours, or overnight.
I scream. You scream. We all scream for horchata ice cream!

I scream. You scream. We all scream for horchata ice cream!

Horchata Ice Cream

  • 1/2 cup white rice, toasted*
  • 2 1/2 cups whole cream
  • 1 1/4 cups whole milk
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract or vanilla bean paste

Instructions

  1. Pour rice into a blender container and blend until coarsely ground.
  2. Heat the milk and cream in a saucepan until warm and steamy. Do not boil. Add the ground rice and stir. Cover, remove from heat and allow it to rest at room temperature for 2 hours.
  3. Set a mesh strainer lined with several layers of cheesecloth (or use a large coffee filter) over a large bowl. Slowly pour milk/rice mixture through cheesecloth to remove the rice.
  4. Add ground cinnamon to rice milk and reheat rice milk until steamy. Meanwhile whisk egg yolks, eggs and sugar in large bowl. Slowly pour the heated milk into the egg/sugar mixture, a ladleful at a time, whisking constantly so egg yolks are tempered by the warm milk instead of cooked by it. Return egg/milk mixture to the saucepan and add a pinch of salt.
  5. Stir the mixture constantly over medium-low heat with a heatproof spatula or wooden spoon, until the custard thickens enough to coat the back of the spoon or spatula. Sweep a finger across the spatula and when the coating doesn't run, the custard is ready. Remove from heat immediately.
  6. Remove cheesecloth from strainer and pour hot custard through the strainer only. Stir in the vanilla.
  7. Chill custard thoroughly in the refrigerator, preferably overnight, before freezing in your ice cream maker according to manufacturer's instructions.

* To toast the rice: Pour white rice into a skillet on medium-high heat. Stir constantly until the rice turns golden, about 3 minutes.

Butter Caramel Sauce

This caramel sauce perfectly complements horchata ice cream's cloying sweetness.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 3 tablespoons water
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/4 cup salted butter
  • 3/4 cup evaporated milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher or sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Instructions

  1. In a medium saucepan combine sugar, water and honey. Simmer over medium-high heat, swirling but not stirring, until sugar dissolves and bubbles.
  2. Add butter, evaporated milk and kosher salt. Boil for thirty seconds, whisking constantly.
  3. Add vanilla extract and allow caramel sauce to cool. This is a thin caramel sauce that will thicken once it has chilled for several hours. Store in the refrigerator for up to one week.

Do You Need an Ice Cream Maker?

Although there are many methods for making ice cream, nothing churns out this creamy confection faster than a maker. The Cuisinart ICE-21 has been a fixture in my kitchen for more than a decade. It's affordable and easy to use, and, if you're in the habit of buying five quarts of grocery store ice cream annually, will pay for itself in a few years.

Homemade ice cream is more healthful than store brands because you control the ingredients. Commercial brands often contain chemicals like diethyl glycol, which is toxic enough to cause liver and kidney damage even in small amounts. Also, if you're on a low-fat diet, the maker can freeze tropical fruit sorbet or yogurt. If you're in the market for an ice cream maker, you're in luck! Cuisinart's newest model is equipped with a specially designed paddle that cuts freezing time to just 20 minutes, which means creamier ice cream and less time in the kitchen.

If you own a Kitchenaid stand mixer, your best bet would be to buy their ice cream attachment. See the Amazon capsule, below, for more information on either option.

Maria Arsiq, I've seen recipes for lactose free ice cream. You'd have to adapt it and see how it goes. Please let me know if you have a chance to try it!

Marija Arsic from Serbia on May 12, 2015:

Looks so delicious....do you think it would work without milk? My hubby is dairy intolerant....

Claudia Tello, I'm often amazed how much more I appreciate a food when I can't get it! I guess absence makes the heart fonder and that applies to food, too. : ) I hope you get to try the horchata ice cream someday. I love it in the drink form, but the ice cream version plays up the creamy, vanilla and cinnamon goodness. Thanks for coming by!

Claudia Tello from Mexico on January 12, 2013:

Oh my GOD! How I wish I had an ice cream maker to indulge in all your wonderful ice-cream desserts! I love horchata and even when I live in Mexico I don´t drink it that much..... now that I think of it ¿why???!!! :)

CZCZCZ from Oregon on January 06, 2013:

What a great looking dessert. I love homemade ice cream and want to give this Horchata recipe a try. The banana's look done perfectly so, tasty!

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on January 06, 2013:

Ktrapp, we use our ice cream maker a lot in the summer and a little in the winter. You know what you put in your ice cream and that it doesn't contain chemicals or additives. Plus, it's super delicious! It's a great dessert to make when you have company because you do it ahead of time and it's such a special treat. The caramel sauce and bananas would be delicious on vanilla ice cream, too. Thank you for your meaningful comment! I hope you decide to get an ice cream maker.

Kristin Trapp from Illinois on January 06, 2013:

This recipe looks as delicious today to me as it did when I first saw it several months ago. I'm thinking of making the bananas and caramel sauce to try on vanilla ice cream. I see the Cuisinart ice cream maker that you use is very reasonably priced on Amazon. I'm seriously considering getting one. Congratulations on HOTD.

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on January 06, 2013:

Tammyswallow, thanks for coming by! HOTD--such a pleasant Sunday morning surprise. : )

Tammy from North Carolina on January 06, 2013:

Congratulations on getting a well deserved hub of the day! This looks fabulous!

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on January 06, 2013:

Savingkathy, the ice cream maker is nice for us since I only use fresh ingredients and no chemicals go into our homemade ice cream. The down side is the machine does take up a lot of cabinet space. Thank you for taking the time to come by!

Kathy Sima from Ontario, Canada on January 06, 2013:

Oh my... this dessert looks delicious! I used to have an ice cream maker, but rarely used it. Now I wish I still had it so I could give this recipe a try.

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on January 06, 2013:

Billybuc, thanks so much for your support. HOTD--what a nice surprise. : )

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on January 06, 2013:

Stephsev, it sounds like it's time for you to make some homemade ice cream! The hardest part is remembering to freeze the containers and make the custard a day ahead of time. The rest is easy, and especially the eating. : ) Thank you for coming by.

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on January 06, 2013:

DeniseHandlon, the sauteed bananas are inspired by Asian or South American cuisine since both sauté bananas. Thank you for your kind words and all the support! The award was such a pleasant surprise. : )

Bill Holland from Olympia, WA on January 06, 2013:

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on October 14, 2012:

Lemonkerdz, the good thing about this ice cream is the rice milk makes it so silky. Here in Peru it's hard to control the fat content of the cream, so that's definitely a good thing! Thank you for paying me a visit! BTW, love your username. : )

lemonkerdz from LIMA, PERU on October 14, 2012:

Mrs. Menagerie, thanks so much for your kind words!

Wing Girl Kim on July 13, 2012:

Design Artistree,

You could make ice cream a can, like a coffee can. Place the can inside a larger container, like a plastic tub and surround with ice. Then roll it on the ground, or have some kids play with it like a ball.

Mrs. Menagerie from The Zoo on July 13, 2012:

Beautiful hub, enticing recipe and well deserved win vespawoolf!!! Congrats!

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on July 11, 2012:

Design Artistree, ktrapp did a great hub about making ice cream in a ziplock bag: https://ktrapp.hubpages.com/video/homemade-ice-cre... You might like to check it out. This ice cream is so silky, smooth and delicious. I hope you have the chance to try it. Thanks so much for stopping by!

Janie Kliever on July 11, 2012:

I love horchata--discovered it at my favorite little Mexican restaurant several years ago :) Is there a method for making the ice cream without an ice-cream maker? Unfortunately, I don't have one, but am dying to try this recipe!

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on July 11, 2012:

Mama Kim 8, I hope you enjoy this creamy frozen dessert. The caramel sauce is a great flavor complement. Thanks so much for taking the time to comment and for your kind words!

Rebecca Mealey from Northeastern Georgia, USA on July 11, 2012:

How interesting. I have never heard of hortacha! It looks really good. I love caramel. Voted awesome and shared. % stars!

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on July 11, 2012:

Ishwaryaa22, thank you so much for the kudos and your kind words. This is a delicious ice cream, but definitely not for dieters. I usually make a batch when we're going to have guests over for dinner, that way I only eat a small portion and give the rest away. I hope you can enjoy it silky texture and delicious flavor someday! I appreciate the time you took to read and comment.

Ishwaryaa Dhandapani from Chennai, India on July 11, 2012:

Wow! A yummy dessert! The photos look drool-worthy! Your engaging hub is filled with detailed instructions, handy tips & helpful photos. After reading this recipe, I wanted to try Horachata ice-cream soon but unfortunately, I am on a diet. Hopefully, I try it in the near future. Belated Congrats in your win! Very much-deserved! Well-done!

Thanks for SHARING. Useful, Awesome & Interesting. Voted up & Socially Shared.

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on July 06, 2012:

Thanks so much, LetitiaFT, for your kind words. I was really surprised but pleased, to say the least!

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on July 06, 2012:

Peggy W, I hope you can find it. It was actually a "made up" recipe. I know what you mean about keeping ice cream around the house. That's the good thing about homemade. Without the preservatives it only keeps for two days. Thanks so much for your kind words!

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on July 06, 2012:

Congratulations on your win! I knew when I read this the first time that it sounded great. I have still to taste horchata ice cream. Will look for it when I am out. Like Gail (happyboomernurse) I purposely don't keep ice cream in the house. Way too tempting! :)

LetitiaFT from Paris via California on July 06, 2012:

Congratulations on the best dessert prize! Much warranted!

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on July 06, 2012:

Melovy, thanks so much for the kind words. Horchata ice cream is both unusual and delicious! I hope you have the chance to enjoy it. I feel very honored to be included among the winners this time around. : )

Yvonne Spence from UK on July 06, 2012:

Congrats to you too Vespawoolf! I liked the look of this recipe when I first saw it and it is so unusual. I haven’t yet had a chance to make it, but do intend over the summer.

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on July 06, 2012:

Ktrapp, thank you so much! Yes, I am still in shock. There were so many awesome dessert recipes; I feel extra grateful for the win. And congratulations are in order for you, as well, for your wonderful Homemade Ice Cream in a Bag recipe!

Kristin Trapp from Illinois on July 06, 2012:

I see congratulations are in order for winning the Best Dessert Recipe Hub in the contest. I cannot even begin to imagine how fabulous this Horchata ice cream must taste with the caramel sauce and bananas. Congratulations on your win, which is quite an achievement considering the amount of tempting dessert hubs entered in the contest.

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on June 29, 2012:

Livelonger, thanks so much for taking the time to read and comment. Horchata is the perfect ending to a spicy meal. It's not for the calorie conscious, but then again it doesn't hurt to enjoy a delectable dessert now and then!

Jason Menayan from San Francisco on June 29, 2012:

This looks positively delectable. I'm a big fan of horchata - I get it at taquerias when I'm not feeling particularly calorie-conscious! - and I love the flavor. It sounds like something that's perfect as a dessert, an even more powerful jalapeno flame-douser than the liquid. I hope to try to make this before the summer's over!

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on June 17, 2012:

Purple Perl, it's so true and making ice cream is fun, too! Thank you for reading and commenting.

Esther Shamsunder from Bangalore,India on June 17, 2012:

Making your own ice cream at home is definitely healthier, and your family will love you for it. It also gives you a chance to display your creative skills.

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on June 12, 2012:

Happyboomernurse, thank you so much for your kind your vote. I know what you mean! Ice cream is so tempting. I find it best to make a batch for dinner parties so that I only enjoy a modest portion and share the rest with my guests!

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on June 12, 2012:

Patty Inglish, thank you for your kind words and for pinning!

Patty Inglish MS from USA and Asgardia, the First Space Nation on June 12, 2012:

Definitely a 5-star recipe and Hub! I've enjoyed horchata beverages and will try this recipe. Pinned it so friends can enjoy it too.

Gail Sobotkin from South Carolina on June 12, 2012:

Congrats on winning for this recipe for a type of ice cream that I've never heard of. The ingredients and final product sound very good.

I never make my own ice cream and I also avoid having any store bought made ice cream in my freezer cause I find eating it too tempting to resist. At least when I order it in ice cream parlors of restaurants the amount I can eat is limited! LOL

This is a great hub and I voted it up, useful, awesome, beautiful and interesting. Also gave it 5 stars.

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on June 12, 2012:

Turtlewoman, thank you for your kind words. I'm surprised and honored to have won a prize!

Kim Lam from California on June 12, 2012:

Vespa Woolf (author) from Peru, South America on June 11, 2012:

Thank you for the kind words, Kelley! It's not healthful like your nice recipes, but it is nice for a special occasion.
