Yummy. After baking can you freeze in individual serving sizes?

Sounds great, but what can you substitute for Rice Dream? Dietitian comment: You can substitute almond milk or soy milk but different products vary in potassium, phosphorus and calcium content. You could check with your dietitian for recommended products.
