2whole cinnamon sticks
1/2cupvegan sugar(or sweetener of choice, to taste)
Add the water, brown rice, almonds and cinnamon sticks to your Instant Pot and cook on high pressure for 10 minutes.
Release the pressure manually and remove the cinnamon sticks. If you are using a granulated sweetener add now so it will dissolve in the hot liquid.
Puree the mixture in a blender.
Strain through a nut milk bag or fine mesh strainer. Store in the refrigerator for up to 7 days.
Make this nut free by using 1/2 cup of brown rice instead of half almond and half brown rice.If you want this to be a whiter beverage, closer to the traditional version, use blanched almonds.
