  • Pop cinnamon stick into the pitcher, cover, and refrigerate for a minimum of 4 hours, but overnight is best.
  • Once mixture has soaked, strain the rice milk through a fine mesh sieve lined with cheesecloth that's been placed over a pitcher.
  • While milk is straining, whisk together pumpkin puree, coconut milk and sugar in a small sauce pan and cook over medium heat until the sugar dissolves. About 3-4 minutes.
