4 cups hot water
1 1/2 cups long-grain rice
1 (14-oune) can NESTLÉ LA LECHERA Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 cup milk
2 cinnamon sticks
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- Combine water, rice, sweetened condensed milk, milk and cinnamon sticks in large bowl; cover and cool at room temperature. Refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight.
- Remove cinnamon sticks. Spoon rice into blender (reserve soaking water); cover. Blend on high for 3 to 4 minutes or until mixture is as smooth as possible. Add the reserved soaking water; blend for an additional 2 minutes. Strain mixture through a cheesecloth or extra fine sieve into a pitcher, pressing the rice solids until only a dry paste remains; discard paste. Repeat process if necessary to eliminate all rice solids from liquid.
