Yes, you can make your own rice milk and its actually very easy to do, and much less expensive then buying quarts of it at the store. You also control the amount of fat and sugar in the rice milk. Here’s the basic recipe.
Add to a blender
- 6 cups of cool water
- 1 1/2 cups of cooked brown rice (you can use white rice if you prefer)
- 2 tablespoons of agave nectar*
Blend until smooth, it takes quite awhile, I usually blend it for approximately 8-10 minutes. Pour through a small sieve to get out residue of the rice that did not blend. Store in the refrigerator; this will last approximately 6-7 days.
*Optional; you can also increase or decrease the agave depending on how sweet you want the milk; for savory recipes, use less agave and for dessert recipes, use a little more if you want.
To make vanilla rice milk, add 2 teaspoons of vanilla.
