If you have a high-speed blender and a ½ cup of raw rice, you are only a minute away from 3 beautiful white cups of clean, plant-based milk. Save yourself money, eliminate wasted packaging, and save trips to the store buying boxed plant-based milks which are often full of sugar, thickening agents and food additives.
I prefer using cooked rice to make rice milk, but seldomly use rice milk because soymilk is superior in flavor and protection.
I always rinse my rice well before cooking for meals. Do you not need to rinse the rice before making milk?
You can rinse your rice if you prefer it rinsed.
Has anyone tried adding vanilla extract to this?
You may also want to add a couple drops of stevia. Anytime extracts are used they need a sweetener to boost them and bring out their flavor.
I typically use this milk in savory recipes so I haven’t tried adding vanilla.
Can you do anything with the left over rice pulp? I hate to waste anything…
Sara, I’m sure you could mix it into another recipe, just not sure how it would turn out. I haven’t experimented with it, YET! I am so pleased with the beautiful and cost saving clean milk the rice makes that I am ok with tossing it, but I will work on coming up with a use for it. Thanks for the inspiration!
I went to make the frosty and realized I was completely out of soymilk. This was easy to make
can you freeze this milk, and if so how long?
I have never tried freezing it. It sounds like a great Idea! I usually try to use anything I’ve frozen with in 6 months.
I wonder if adding a little vanilla would help with the chalky, starchy taste?
That would work with cereal but not cream soups. I want to know if I did something wrong. You use raw brown rice correct? Blended with water and strained through a paint bag. No cooking?
You did it correct, use dry uncooked brown rice. I think you might be squeezing the bag too hard. Allow it to naturally drip through. When the milk settles in the refrigerator it will form a glob in the bottom as most plant based milks do. Stir or shake it up and its good to go.
Can you do anything to make it not taste chky and starchy?
Don’t squeeze the strainer. Allow the liquid to drain through the bag with out force. Forcing it may have caused the powdered rice to slip through.
Would a coffee filter work to strain milk or is it not porous enough?
I think a coffee filter would be to fine and slow, but if you give it a try will you let us know? I don’t have any or I would test it out for you. I prefer a 1 gallon nylon paint strainer from the hardware store. They are only $2, washable, reusable and hold more of the ground rice than a coffee filter.
can I use raw instant brown rice if I don’t have regular brown rice?
Yes, Instant rice would work just fine.
It should stay fresh for a week. Give it a good shake or stir. It tends to settle like all plant based milks.
How long do you think this milk is good for in the refrigerator?
Yup you couldn’t even tell a difference!
This is just another recipe that is awesome! I mean think about it, if its a tight week and you can’t afford soymilk then 1 cup of rice can make 4 cups of rice milk. This plan is awesome! I put this in my frosty tonight because I had a friend over who don’t do soy! The frostys were awesome!
Just made this in my vitamix! Awesome! I love rice milk!
Can it be made with cooked rice?
Do you cook the rice first?
No, raw rice. You don’t even have to soak it.
