After Adrienne posted about how to make homemade rice milk, I’ve been wanting to try it. I mean, who couldn’t find it fascinating that you could basically blend rice and water together and turn it into milk?
Personally, I was a bit skeptical that it would really work that well. It seemed too good to be true.
I cooked the rice and then put it in the Vita-Mix with water, a dash of salt, vanilla, and honey (see the recipe measurements and instructions here).
And then turned on the Vita-Mix and let it run for two minutes.
The result? Beautiful rice milk that tasted identical to rice milk we’ve bought at the health food store.
It was delicious in Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free Waffles–and it took all of five minutes to make!
Note: I did try keeping some of the rice milk in the refrigerator and it didn’t taste all that great after a few days. So I’d recommend making it fresh or using it up within a day or two.
Have any of you tried making rice milk or other non-dairy milks? I’d love to hear about your experiences!
