Then transfer the contents of the bowl to a blender along with vanilla extract. Mix until the rice and cinnamon appear finely ground. Pour this mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a half-gallon sized jug.
Finally, put the sieved residue with milk (or alternative milk for a dairy-free treatment) and maple syrup back into the mixer. Mix until well mixed and pour the milk through the sieve into the jug. Chill the jug until it is cold and ready to drink.
