Horchata & Pumpkin Pie “Milk” Shake – Adopting Debi of Hunter’s Lyonesse

collards and adoption 011

Adopt a Gluten-Free Blogger, an event created by Sea of Book of Yum and hosted this month by Lauren from As Good As Gluten, snuck up on me more than usual. I adopted Debi of Hunter’s Lyonesse and had plans to make her  Flourless Pumpkin Pie Cookies as well as her easy Horchata and Pumpkin Pie “Milk” Shake (made with the rice-based horchata) but as you can tell from the picture, I only made the beverages.  The cookies are on deck for this weekend though, as they look scrumptious and easy, along with being grain-free and vegan. My kind of baking.

I discovered Debi through the supportive community that comprises gluten-free bloggers. She combines humor with seriousness and has addressed a variety of gluten-free topics on her blog.  And the recipes are delicious. I love the easy approach to Horchata (I substituted agave for the honey).  Somehow after a night, the rice milk had soaked in the agave and cinnamon, and become somewhat thicker.  It was a lovely component of the pumpkin milk shake, which was a nice change from my usual pumpkin smoothies.  My husband, who has had horchata more recently than me, pronounced Debi’s recipe on-point. I was too busy wresting the glass away from him so I could have more.  

I am submitting this review of Debi’s blog to Linda’s Gluten-Free Wednesday over at the Gluten-Free Homemaker, as I think Hunter’s Lyonesse is a fabulous blog to read if you are interested in gluten-free recipes and issues of interest to the gluten-free community.

Thank you for the wonderful adoption post, Valerie! I tried leaving a comment from my phone the other night, but it didn't work. Finally made it to a computer (we're on vacation) to do so. I'm so glad that you and your husband enjoyed the horchata and I hope you like the cookies when you finally get to make them!
