Ingredients for servings

  • 6 cups water, divided

  • 1 cup uncooked white rice

  • 0.5 cup(s) chopped almonds

  • 1 cinnamon stick(s), broken in half or into pieces

  • 0.5 cup sugar

  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Directions

  • Place rice in a fine mesh strainer and rinse under running water.

  • In a large pitcher or bowl, add 3 cups of the water, rice, chopped almonds and the cinnamon stick. Mix together, cover and let it soak in the fridge for at least 4 hours but preferably overnight.

  • After soaking, add the mixture to blender and puree for about 3 minutes, until completely smooth.

  • Set a fine mesh strainer over a large pitcher. Pour the mixture through the strainer and remove as much of the liquid out as possible. Use a spoon or spatula to help move the liquid through. - Do this about 2 times, until the strained liquid is smooth and creamy.

  • Add in the remaining 3 cups of water, sugar and vanilla extract. Mix together, taste and add more sugar if desired. Serve over ice and enjoy!
