11 cups


  • 7 cup boiling water

  • 3 cup uncooked long grain rice

  • 6 inches stick cinnamon

  • ¾ cup sugar

  • 5 cup vanilla-flavor unsweetened almond milk or rice milk, or reduced-fat milk

  • 3 tablespoon instant espresso coffee powder or dark-roast coffee powder

  • Ground cinnamon (optional)


  1. In a large pitcher or bowl combine boiling water, rice, and stick cinnamon. Cover and let stand at room temperature for 6 to 24 hours. Remove stick cinnamon.

  2. Working in batches, in a blender combine rice mixture and sugar. Cover and blend on high speed until nearly smooth (mixture will still have bits of rice). Line a sieve with cheesecloth and strain mixture into a 4-quart slow cooker. Stir in almond milk and coffee powder.

  3. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4 hours, whisking once halfway through cooking.

  4. Whisk well before serving. Serve in coffee cups or mugs. If desired, sprinkle each serving with ground cinnamon. Makes 22 servings.


To make iced latte, cover and chill any leftover latte. Serve over ice.
