Puesto Teams Up With Califia Farms For Plant-Based Frozen Horchata For A Cause
For the month of August, San Diego’s taco institution, Puesto , is giving its popular frozen horchata – which has been on the menu since they opened their first location in 2012 – the plant-based treatment.
Partnering with Califia Farms, Executive Pastry Chef Erik Aronow perfected the dairy-free version of Puesto’s Frozen Horchata for a cause by subbing in the brand’s unsweetened oat milk for whole milk. The final mix is a creamy blend of oat milk, nutmeg, cinnamon, sugar, vanilla and simple syrup – and yes, you can still order it boozy with Malahat rum!
It’s about time that those who are lactose intolerant and/or vegan can finally delight in this drink!
Puesto donates $1 from every frozen horchata purchased to a rotating charity. Proceeds from the August plant-based horchata will go to Chefs Cycle for No Kid Hungry. Overall, 48,000 frozen horchatas have been sold throughout Southern California, with over 500 charities supported.
See you there!
