HOMEMADE RICE MILK RECIPE
This recipe for homemade rice milk is much EASIER and FASTER than other DIY rice milk recipes that don’t use a Blendtec or Vitamix blender! Without one, top recipes recommended cooking long grain brown rice for THREE HOURS so the rice is soft enough for a low wattage blender to handle. As usual, Blender Babes makes it in just MINUTES! Of course, homemade rice milk is also a lot cheaper and even healthier than purchased rice milk.
There are so many great uses for rice milk and other milk substitutes! It is most commonly used on cereal, in a creamy rice pudding, in a green smoothie, in soups or curries, and in baking or any healthy recipes calling for milk.
- 1/2 cup cooked rice
- 2 cups filtered water
- 1/2 cup ice
Sweeter of choice to taste
- Brown Sugar
- Sugar substitute such as Stevia
