Homemade Rice Milk ~ Easy!
Why does anyone buy rice milk when it’s so easy to make? Not only that, but the pre-made rice milks in the stores contain all sorts of additives that I am not willing to put in my body. All you need are the right tools and this recipe could not be simpler. Those tools are a blender and a nutmilk bag, which you can get at any health food store. I did a lot of research to find the best one, so I have it up on my Amazon store, here if you prefer to buy one online.
Here is the easy recipe…
- 1 cup cooked short-grain brown rice
- 4 cups water
- 2 dates, pitted
- pinch of salt (optional)
- Place the dates, the rice and about one cup of water in the blender and blend until smooth. Add remaining water and salt (if using), and blend again until there are no bits of dates left. I let mine run for about 2 minutes.
- Strain the milk through a nut bag and squeeze out all of the liquid.
- Refrigerate in a glass container. Stays fresh for 3-4 days.
Makes one quart. Enjoy!
