Helpful hints

  • Rice milk can also be made with uncooked rice that is soaked in filtered water for 24 hours. Use 1 cup rice to 3 cups water. Adjust water for desired thickness.
  • Optional ingredients: 1-2 teaspoons canola oil added during blending; ground cinnamon; agave or maple syrup or honey instead of sugar or other sweetener of choice.
  • Homemade rice milk is free of additives and preservatives like calcium phosphate and salt, and costs less than commercially prepared rice milk.
  • Rice milk is low in protein. Add 1-2 scoops of protein powder to make high-protein rice milk.
  • Analysis includes white rice but you can substitute brown rice if desired.
