Sometimes you just can’t deny the ease and tastiness of instant food …
In a previous post, I described how to make Easy Homemade Horchata. In response to that post, I had a few commenters suggest that I try horchata purchased from a local Mexican market. So when I popped in for some dried chiles, I picked up a bag of instant horchata mix:
It’s a bit sweeter than the homemade version, but boy is it good!! Jim and I are currently on our second bag of mix and we typically finish a pitcher in 2 days – Hehe
We also picked up some other aguas frescas mixes to try!
I’m certainly not advocating that instant or ready-made is the way to go all the time (Jim and I cook dinners pretty much from scratch at least 5x per week, and come on, we all know homemade tastes better), but sometimes, pre-fab food just makes life a little sweeter.
P.S. While we’re on the subject of horchata – I made an Etsy Treasury inspired by the beverage! Click here to visit, and browse more of the collection!
