Many of us are choosing to cut down our dairy consumption these days amidst evidence that its not good for our health. There are a lot of plant milks you can consume instead of cow's milk, but they are generally quite expensive or full of sugar, preservatives, additives and other unhealthy substances. The good news is that plant milks are really easy to make at home and you don't need any special equipment. You only need rice, water and your favorite sweetener to make this delicious rice milk and it's ready in 5 minutes!
½ cup cooked brown rice (100 g)
2 cups water (500 ml)
2 dates (optional)
- Blend the cooked rice, dates (optional) and water until well blended and smooth.
- Strain the blended rice mixture using a cheesecloth, napkin or a strainer. This step is optional. If you have a powerful blender such as a Vitamix, you won't need to strain the milk.
- Store the rice milk in a sealed container in the fridge for three or four days.
