- 1 1/3 cups uncooked long-grain white rice
- 2 cinnamon sticks or about 1/2 – 1 tsp of ground cinnamon
- 4 cups water
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 2 tsp vanilla extract
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- 1/3 – 1/2 cups raw sugar
Put the cooked, cooled rice, 2 cups of the water and cinnamon to blender. Blend for 60 seconds or until the rice and cinnamon are ground, roughly. Add the rest of the water and blend again briefly. Pour the lot into a large jug that you can put a lid on or cover, and let stand at room temperature for at least 8 hours or overnight. Pour through fine mesh strainer (such as a nut milk bag), into another jug. Discard the solids.
Stir in milk, vanilla, cinnamon, and as much sugar that you want. Chill until ready to serve. Stir before serving and add ice!
