Its name and ingredients vary throughout several Latin American countries and it is often made with ground almonds, sesame seeds, rice, tigernuts, or barley.

The version most commonly found in the U.S., however, is rice-based, and it will honestly change 👏🏽 your 👏 life. 👏🏽

This deliciousness is made by soaking rice and cinnamon in water for a couple of hours (or overnight).

Vanilla extract, sugar, milk, condensed milk, and whatever else your heart desires is then added in order to transform this drink from great to INCREDIBLE.
