  • 1 cup rice
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 cups almond milk
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • ¼ cup sugar
  • Cinnamon for topping


  1. In a bowl or pitcher, mix rice, water, and Cinnamon sticks together. Let sit for eight hours or overnight.
  2. After soaking rice, remove Cinnamon sticks and blend rice and water as smooth as possible.
  3. Using a fine strainer, cheesecloth, or even a tea towel or thin cloth, strain all liquid into a pitcher. Squeeze out as much of the liquid from the rice that you can.
  4. Add the almond milk and sugar to the rice milk. Stir until sugar dissolves.
  5. Pour over ice and top with more Cinnamon!
