Servings 4 Servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup long grain white rice, rinsed
  • 4 cups water
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, plus more for garnish
  • 1 cup skim milk
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar, plus 2-3 Tbsp to taste
  • 1 1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • Ice

Instructions

  • Wash and drain rice. Combine rice with cinnamon sticks in water and soak overnight in the refrigerator.
  • After the rice has soaked for at least 8-10 hours, preferably overnight, discard the cinnamon sticks and pour rice and water into a blender. Add ½ tsp cinnamon and blend on low for 2-3 minutes until well blended. Pour blended rice mixture through fine mesh sieve two times and then through cheesecloth one more time to remove all gritty bits of rice.
  • Pour strained mixture into a pitcher, add skim milk, brown sugar and vanilla and stir well to combine. Add more sugar if needed, to taste. Best served with ice & a dash of ground cinnamon.
