Enjoy a comforting cup of this warm rice milk accented with vanilla and cinnamon! Use fluffy Mahatma® White Rice for best results.
In a saucepan, combine white rice, 2 1/2 cups water, 1 1/2 cups milk and cinnamon stick; bring to boil. Cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, or until rice is tender and most of the liquid is absorbed. Remove cinnamon stick.
Stir in evaporated milk, remaining milk, sugar and vanilla. Return to boil; cook, stirring often, for 5 minutes.
Transfer mixture to a blender, in batches if needed; purée until smooth.
Divide among 8 mugs. Garnish each serving with a pinch of cocoa and cinnamon.
If desired, drizzle with dulce de leche or chocolate syrup before serving.

All is not lost if you don’t have everything listed in the ingredients! In the spirit of customizing a recipe, don’t be afraid to get creative by using some substitutions!
– No cinnamon sticks? Add 1/2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon after preparing the rice.
– No evaporated milk? Evaporate the milk yourself! Measure out 60% more milk than necessary ( for this recipe, you´ll need a little more than 4 3/4 cups), bring milk to a boil, and reduce — stirring constantly to avoid burning.
– No sugar? Sub in brown sugar, panela, or raw sugar. You can also use honey, maple syrup, or agave; just remember that these alternatives are both sweeter and more viscous – so you may want to reduce the amount.
