  • 1 and 1/3 cups long grain white rice uncooked
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 4 cups cold water filtered
  • 1/3 cup sugar
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup whole milk or milk of preference


  • Add rice, cinnamon sticks and 2 cups of water to a blender. Blend until rice and cinnamon are broken down.
  • Add the remaining 2 cups of water and blend.
  • Pour this mixture into a pitcher. Make sure to scrape all the rice bits from the bottom of the blender.
  • Store in the refrigerator overnight.
  • After soaking overnight, pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer into another large pitcher.
  • Rinse the original pitcher and clean. Then pour the rice drink back through the fine mesh strainer back into the pitcher. This way the drink is being strained twice.
  • Stir in milk, vanilla extract, and 1/4 cup of the sugar. Stir together with a whisk. Taste and sweeten more to taste if desired.
