Homemade Rice Milk

Homemade Rice milk. It's great in smoothies, on cereal, and to bake with. It is also a whole lot better for you.

I came across a recipe for rice milk. Very inexpensive, easy, and more fun than buying it! Here is my version, and its so good.

1/2 c brown rice (You can use regular rice as well)
8c water + 1c cold water
1/8 tsp salt
honey to taste (optional)
1/2 tsp cinnamon (optional)
1/2 tsp vanilla (optional)

1. Soak the rice. They recommend 2 hours in cold water

2. Drain the rice. Put it in a large saucepan with the water and salt. Bring to a boil. Turn down to simmer for 3 hours. Keep the lid on the whole time!

3. After 3 hours, take the pan off the heat. While cooling, add honey, vanilla, and cinnamon. I recommend cinnamon if you are using the rice milk for baking or cereal. For smoothies and other uses, I would omit the cinnamon. Stir the mixture.

4. Once cooled a bit, empty the rice into a blender. Pour enough water to fill the blender to the max fill line. My whole batch didn't all fit in the blender. Blend until all the rice is smooth, about 2 minutes.

5. Combine rice mixture with reserved water. Add the one cup cold water (or more) if you like a thinner consistency. Refrigerate and use within a week!
