High Protein Rice Milk

Agatha50 says:


* Thus does not instruct how to make rice milk?? I prefer not to purchase commercial rice, almond or other dairy alternatives. What is wrong with coconut milk as alternate to cow milk?? Dietitian comment: One reason cow's milk is replaced is the high potassium and phosphorus content. Some coconut milks have added calcium phosphate and contain 250+ mg potassium, so be sure to check the nutrition facts and ingredients. We do not have a rice milk recipe[INVALID]-yet!
