Cook rice with water and salt for 15 minutes. Add milk and cook for 30 minutes until rice is tender and of a thick consistency. Let cool. Whip cream with sugar and vanilla extract. Combine the rice and cream.
Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix for one minute. Fresh strawberries may be added if desired.
Note: I always use fresh or frozen and I've never tried it with the preserves. When using fresh or frozen, you'll need about a pound. Slice them as preferred, then place them in a bowl with water, lemon juice and sugar to taste. Let it sit for a while, overnight is best.
