Similar to horchata, but easier. Light and sweet drink from Southern Living. Cook time is chill time.

This was nice, different to anything I've had before, the cinnamon flavour is nice & strong & the drink is lovely on a hot day. I also added it to coffee for a cinnamon infused iced coffee which was lovely. Thanks for posting!

  2. Process cinnamon pieces, rice milk and 3 cups milk, in batches, in a blender or food processor until smooth. Pour mixture through a fine wire-mesh strainer into a saucepan, discarding cinnamon pieces.
  3. Stir in sugar and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes or until sugar dissolves. Chill 2 to 4 hours. Serve over crushed ice with cinnamon sticks, if desired.
