Savory Spice ingredients in this recipe

Directions

Soak almonds and rice in 3 cups water overnight. Add sugar (to taste), Pure Mexican Vanilla Extract, Ground Ceylon Cinnamon, and Mayan Sea Salt and blend until smooth, about 60 seconds. Line a sieve with cheesecloth and set over a large pitcher. Pour contents of blender slowly through the lined sieve into the pitcher. Gather ends of cheesecloth and squeeze out any excess liquid into the pitcher. Add remaining 2 cups water. Serve immediately over ice, or blend again with 1 cup ice for a frozen drink.
