  • 1 cup US-grown short grain brown rice
  • 2 1/2 cups unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon almond extract
  • pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1- 12 ounce package frozen sweet cherries
  • 1/2 cup sliced almonds


  • Mix together rice, almond milk, almond extract, salt and maple sugar in a slow cooker, and set to high. Cook, stirring occasionally for 1 hour, or until rice starts to plump and absorbs about half of the milk.
  • Add frozen cherries and almonds and stir to combine.
  • Reduce heat to low and cook for another 30 minutes or until rice is soft and chewy.
  • Serve hot or cold.


Refrigerate leftovers in a covered container and reheat or eat cold, adding additional almond milk if necessary.
