Made as written-wonderful beverage! Ground my own almond flour and rice flour using a spice mill. Tried jasmine rice in place of standard white rice. This is what I call comfort food and is simply perfect in every way. Very satisfying on a cool, rainy morning. Reviewed for N*A*M*E Tag April/May. PS To avoid burning the milk, use the smallest burner on your stove top. Thank you for posting the recipe!

This beverage is so tasty, although I don't think my almonds were ground as small as they should have been as I used them straight from a bag of ground almonds. I also used brown rice flour that I had left over from making gluten free bread. My almonds also had the brown skin on them. Next time I make it, I will grind he almonds myself. Made for Casual January 2013 Veggie tag.
